The Act of Settlement

I note some recent discussion regarding the mooted repealing of the Act, allowing the monarch to marry a Catholic. See a recent article in the Telegraph, and Damian Thompson’s take on the electoral politics involved. I suspect that this is inevitable, and I’m not aware of very much opposition from within the church to the change.
For information: see the Guardian’s campaign for this change, begun in 2000.
