People dying is always a sad thing, but **** me this is truly pathetic
You wait until the Queen pops her clogs, it will be epic on the entertainment front.
Yep, that’s what I was saying earlier. BBC has shut down all of its programming, tv and radio, to cover it. One channel, evidently, isn’t enough.
Ah round my ends are you? Is sir on the spice tonight or simply looking for some female company?I’m out at a friend’s house now. I’m not that far from ted’s house, so I’m trying to keep the noise down.
Ha ha I’m just off Wymondham Way. I’ve got a hip flask of toffee vodka, along with pints of snakebite & blackAh round my ends are you? Is sir on the spice tonight or simply looking for some female company?
Well, other side of Scalford Road for that but it’s not far.
Sorry, that is ****ish, of the highest order."Service to a country" is a canned phrase which is pretty meaningless upon any scrutiny. Nurses, binmen and even supermarket workers do more to serve the country than someone who gets to live in the lap of luxury their whole life. How exhausting it must be to go on day trips and holidays on a permanent basis. I think we have served him and his family, not the other way round.
I find myself in the unusual position of agreeing with you BN.I am a republican. I want the Royal Family to be completely detached from any role in the governance of the country. I don't believe in titles or honours. In short, I cannot stand the whole thing. I have completely avoided the wall to wall coverage of his death too.
In my view, the only reason that the Royal Family has survived comfortably over the last 50 years or so is down to two people; the Queen and Prince Phillip. They have done a very impressive job of their roles and it is very difficult for a republican to argue against the status quo with them as the figureheads.
I thought Phillip was a remarkable person. He was clearly highly intelligent and a strong personality. He lived an extraordinary life. He was outdated in many areas but that is excusable to me for a man that was literally from another time. I can't say that I'll mourn his loss, but I do respect him and don't really see any justification for using his death for cheap snipes.
