The Succession to the Crown Act must be accepted in each of the 15 Commonwealth countries where the Queen is head of state.
Just three countries –Canada, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines– have approved the British law. That leaves Australia, New Zealand, Jamaica, Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Papua New Guinea, Barbados, Tuvalu, Grenada, Solomon Islands, St Lucia, and the Bahamas which haven’t gotten around to it.
“Some of them are really, really small,” Robert Hazell, the director of the constitution unit at University College London told the Guardian. “Tuvalu, population around 9,000, doesn’t have a lot of capacity and when asked to change their law, they probably have got other urgent matters, like whether they’re disappearing under the Pacific because of global warming.”
Looks like they better send Tuvalu some more global warming extortion money to get them to sign the act. Sea level isn’t rising in Tuvalu.
