New king of Tonga sworn in

The new king of Tonga has been sworn in today, 24 hours after the death of 88-year-old King Taufa-ahau Tupou IV in a New Zealand hospital after a long but unspecified illness.

His successor is noted for his fondness for wearing a monocle and military uniform, and driving around in a London taxi.

As much as I might dislike W, at least he doesn’t wear a monocle. Seriously, any leader wearing a f%ing monocle is just asking for a coop.
