If ever proof was needed that the Liberal Democrats' policy priorities are somewhat strange, you only have to look at the agenda put forward for this week's party conference in Brighton.

While the UK suffers rising crime, homelesness, drug violence, an asylum and immigration system in tatters and, in some cases, a third-world NHS service, what do the Lib Dems concentrate on?

Yes, the most important topic that everyone is talking about - a referendum on the future of the monarchy!
