    I feel that I have lost a member of a semi-deified group of people who are put on a pedestal merely due to their being born in the right bed.

    I just realised this sounds uncannily like an M&S advert....or is it S&M?....I get confused with all the self-flagellation we have to do this week.

    It's good to see a subject (note not citizen) know their place. I haven't received my free cap yet so I can doff the sh*t out of it on Saturday. Must be in the post.

    this thread has descended into ridicule of the Royal Family of whom I am a massive fan

    I urge , in the name of common decency , that it be removed

    Sort of

    how do you reconcile supporting the monarchy with socialist politics?

    to me they seem completely incompatible

    “But ordinary things like barbecuing are held to be absolutely extraordinary when royals do them”, that is so, so it - the sense of wonderment that some people have at the notion of them doing something that most of us wouldn’t give a second thought to.

    I see one hundred plus people have complained to the BBC because they made it too easy to complain about the blanket coverage of Philip’s death on Friday

    I try to take as little interest in the royal family as possible. However, I was exposed to the news yesterday or the day before and I couldn't help noticing a major schism in the reaction of Chuck's progeny in their tributes to the late Duke i.e. the use of lower case 'g' v. upper case 'G' in the word grandpa/Grandpa.

    Yours,

    Fancy people expressing a point of view that is different from you and others on here (including myself incidentally, but they have a right to express it) Bob.

    How dare they. Must be a load of plebs who lack the intelligence of many on here.

    I quite enjoy some of Marina Hyde's, writing incidentally. But some seem to see her and similar writers of all political persuasions as all seeing wise sages who always get it right on such matters when all they are doing is writing is an opinion piece which sometimes hits the mark and other times is a load pf pretentious nonsense

    As with many other writers of the genre of left and right I often wonder how much of the stuff they write is theirs and how much comes out of editorial meetings and they are just the ones who put it all together

    I think you should stop and think about what you wrote there because it seems to me you're being contrary just for the sake of it. Forget the circumstances of this case, any situation where more than a hundred people complain about a complaints procedure because it is too easy to complain is completely ludicrous!

    Right wingers often trot out the "it's a free country, people are free to say and do what they like" line when they haven't got anything else to fall back on as if it somehow makes what said individual is saying or doing perfectly reasonable, but complaining because it's not hard enough to complain is bonkers and should be held up as such. If you think someone who points something that obvious out sees themselves as "an all seeing wise sage who always gets it right", well that says more about you than it does about me.

    I see Prince Andrew is demanding that he be made an Admiral (currently a mere vice-Admiral apparently) so he can wear an Admiral's uniform at the funeral. Poor old Harry is upset as he has to make do with a suit. You couldn't make it up.

    Well he certainly needs to improve his ratings.

    Excellent TBG!

    Incidentally, I've read that Harry Hewitt can wear the uniform of the regiment he served in to the funeral but not the patronage uniforms he wore previously which were all much higher rank presumably.
