As a fairly staunch supporter of the British Imperial Monarchy, I am saddened by the death of Prince Philip.
But some people might argue that this creates a global leadership vacuum.
Former soccer commentator and currently uber-eccentric conspiracy theorist David Icke claims that the world is secretly ruled by a race of reptilian aliens living in secret amongst us, and that the Royal family, all US presidents, many UK prime ministers, the Rockefeller and Rothschild families, and many other powerful people, are all reptilians.
People do read his books and pay to watch David Icke rant for many hours on stage about his theories, so I suppose there is a market out there for such quaint ideas.
Whilst I have not found anything online to say so in particular, I am pretty sure that I have read somewhere (I do read many strange things to amuse myself) that Prince Philip was the chief of the reptilians and therefore the secret ruler of the world.
If that is indeed so, then there is a power vacuum right now.
That some people believe such stuff just goes to show how awesome Prince Philip was. Not only is he worshipped by some Vanuatu tribesmen as a Cargo Cult God, but he is also considered by first world conspiracy theorist nutters to be the secret alien leader of the world. You cannot plan to become such a legend in your own lifetime.
