Scenario on D-Day, 6 June 2014
Putin gives Charles a hurt look, turns on his heel and flounces out of the room.
Cue Charles to follow him into an empty room so that he can explain himself to Putin
If Putin and Charles do not emerge from that room arm in arm smiling happily, the British will actively consider abolishing monarchy.
If Charles negotiates an advantageous treaty between Gazprom and Britain we make him absolute monarch.
