A terrific new read is the eBook from the author John Higgs. It’s called: Our Pet Queen, A New Perspective on Monarchy. I’ll get Mr. Higgs, who joins me now, to tell us about how he’s come to argue that the monarchy is by far the best system, yet there’s a new way to view these royals, as our pets. It’s a fun read, and you can get it for your Kobo or on Amazon. It’s published by Signal. John Higgs is the author of The 20th Century: An Alternative History, as well as of The Brandy of the Damned, I have America Surrounded, and The KLF. He’s also a television producer. He was raised in Wales, and lives in Brighton, England, where he joins me from today. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line Program, John Higgs; Mr. Higgs, good morning.
