Here we go again - following the announcement that a member of the royal benefit scroungers is pregnant, the media go into a paranoid frenzy of sycophantic adulation.
The grovelling Daily Mail tells us that the "nation rejoices!"
By what yard stick the Mail uses to make such a claim is a mystery, except, of course, to the people at the paper who make it up.
Even worse was the BBC, whose royal correspondents seemed to think that the news actually heralded the second coming.
Indeed, one monarchist commenting on Radio 4 was so excited that she thought the royal lineage would last forever.
The BBC, as ever, assumes that republicans went out with the return of Charles II.
As a result any critical comments about this archaic, costly and feudal institution are verboten and almost blasphemous.
Moreover, we can be assured that there will be no benefit cuts for that family, no problems of housing, no lack of hospital treatment, no problem finding a job for their children.
No expense spared.
The wheels of royalist propaganda will now up to full speed to take people's mind off the recession and unemployment.
This circus serves a purpose for the ruling class and Tory government as their bling acts as a shield and distraction from the cuts and hardships yet to come.
At least we have our Morning Star, which is not taken in by all the flummery and masquerade.
The BBC and Whitehall may try to marginalise the left's best paper, but we must make sure its voice will never be silenced
