  1. The protest pictures on the news are showing yellow Not my King banners Which reminds me - where are the Not my Queen banners
  2. Headline; Charles and Camilla make surprise virtual appearance on American Idol I saw the awkward exchange between Charles / Camilla and Lionel Richie / Katy Perry - pretty poor acting and very little comic timing. I saw Tom Cruise say "your majesty you can be my wingman anytime." ( eugh, sickening ) I saw the Royal family, and Rishi Sunak dancing at the concert ( cringe ) I wasn't a big fan of the Queen as such, but I will almost miss the British / Quiet / Reserved era ... looks like it'll be naff American style attention seeking rubbish, and climate and quarantine camps from now on - hopefully there will be no TV's there.
  3. Talk Radio quotes; " Protestors were arrested in the Soho area in the early hours " ( Soho is where William and Kate went to the pub that has the 'George Orwell' room ) " They say women safety volunteers were handing out rape alarms to vulnerable young women." ... "If they were going to throw alarms at the horses "
  4. Talk Radio quotes ... " Charles was championing the environment long before Just Stop Oil existed ". " They have to intervene before a protest could become disruptful " ... " I don't mind if they do it to Just Stop Oil when they glue themselves " ... " I see your point but I still wouldn't agree. This is not a British way of doing things." ( I believe the above was the plan all along. Appear to let XR and JSO off lightly, then the public demand a stop to disruptive protests. It's happened all through Covid. )
  5. The Kevin O Sullivan Show "Charles raised a glass and said "Here's to little Archie wherever he may be" ( Why does that sound rather ominous. )
  6. "Even those who tried to protest by the book, said It wasn't clear what the rules were, and it was difficult to see how to follow the law." 64 arrested - 4 people have been charged ( 4 minutes to save the world ?!? ) "The police have a duty to intervene when a protest may become criminal." 'Republic', the anti royals, say that this was all premeditated ... before any protest could begin ... and the protest was planned for a long time, in talks with the police. Just stop oil were also protesting, supposedly.
  7. "The police have been handed new powers" Labour will "look" at these powers Protest news is constant Sky News - Khan - "Urgent clarity" needed by Met Police Culture Secretary says police "got the balance right" "We did react proportionately"
  8. Talk Radio Ulez expansion Tory party funds anti ulez Facebook blitz ( I'm obviously hearing from a lot of people who are forced to cut down on pleasure or work journeys because of the £9 'toll' to go through town, introduced with no obvious debate or question.)
  9. Charlie is being held up as the Green representative. What a sneaky f*cking trap they set over all these decades. Painting him as the great psychic. And genius. He was right all along. "He was talking about it before anyone". Ha ha ha. Yeah, I wonder why. What a wonderful coincidence. Ha ha Give me strength !! ____ Course they're spinning this as natural common sense Nothing to do with politics / money / greed / murder / William praised Charles for all of this at the concert. I detest seeing the clever spin - that we"re not to question it. Loving nature is not the bloody same as the BS they're all pushing. It's not Black Lives Matter, but it's the same style of trap? Don't you agree that Black Lives Matter?? Don't you love the planet? Then kill yourself for the greater good. "The greater good " We have no choice as the world will end. The sky is falling.
  10. I saw a news clip about the latest pledge to end the wait for GP appointments etc, and the injection of £240 million The images shown were about a minutes worth of hospital staff - overwashing their hands in that ritualistic fashion, overdressed in PPE, giving a completely unrealistic image of a visit to the hospital ... I guess to scare people from going. What has that got to do with GP's anyway?! I've been in and out of hospitals and GP surgeries all throughout the crazy era, and I forget that some people haven't seen for themselves what it is really like now. I will endeavour to share my recent observations 'soon'
  11. Suits are back in fashion some quotes from the feature on GB news ... " I've been in trouble for saying this but I'm a a traditionalist, I like men in suits and women in dresses. " " Apparently since lockdown ended, more people are going to black tie dinners. " " Yes we were all slops during lockdown. " Mike Parry said " since being filmed from the waist up I wear chinos as they are more comfortable, and last longer. " He ended by saying " it's been nice being in with the spice girls", gently referring to the all female panel, and the presenter smiled and called him the "token boy" (Again this is the sort of exchange that they're trying to beat out of us ... but I don't think you would hear a girl called the token girl now. I'm sick of it all though. We can and should communicate ... ) _____________________________ I heard two presenters talk of the guests and presenters outfits for the coronation at the weekend and how important it is to get dressed up. I thought you cheeky bastards, you didn't mind encouraging people to wear jogging bottoms when it suited you, but now it's a royal event we're 'allowed' to dress up, and even dance! And wave flags!! Then it will be ... get back to your cage, and turn the bloody lights off, I suppose
  12. I notice the reintroduction of that word. These bloody people used it constantly since 9/11 ... appropriately and inappropriately. It seems that we will have to get used to seeing constant new war and fear tactics. Anything to stop people going out and enjoying the chance of a carefree day.
  13. I heard that today is VE day. 78 years. I gather that is now more a part of the old world, and that there won't be as many references to it as before? So much for lest we forget?! The old wars have mostly served their purpose? The Convid era has certainly been used to 'break the bonds' to the war, for instance remembrance Sunday was dumped unceremoniously, like everything else ... and the minutes silence for wars has been replaced by any old poncey excuse for forced silence?! Incidentally, I went to a 'remembrance' at the cenotaph in Nov 2020, it was a natural 'congregation' of about 150 people and a few strong minded 'older' men in uniform, who all refused to be told to stay at home that day. Just 'cause there was no state involvement. Thinking back it was quite fascinating to witness the 'parade' in 2022 with all the 'usual' order, barriers and council representatives, etc. It was interesting to say the least, to compare that to the time when the world stopped. I had thought all day back then, of all of those older soldiers, stuck at home, routine destroyed. A reason to get dressed and get together ... Etc. The hypocrisy and double standards and contradictions were glaringly obvious to me.
  14. Almost reminds me of "I'm not going to let the arrival of the son of God spoil my Christmas" from the classic 'old' show; Bottom. ( ... I can never be sure whether that is a wonderful irony, or what is the other word?! ) Apologies EW, I'm just 'riding' on your post, for any excuse to remember Ade Edmonson and Rik Mayall, who I love and cherish ... ah the days of childish, silly humour and 'banter' ! It's not a comment on your post today, just my usual attempt to find the humour if at all possible ...
  15. There was a 'joke' from one presenter how Anne's 'feather' would block Harry's face. I think the reply was 'good job', or 'just as well', perhaps? Anyway, I noticed Harry wasn't singing God save the King with the rest of them, at least it didn't look like it? But you couldn't see his face for long. At that point. I wonder if that really was deliberate?
  16. I caught Times radio mentioning the police / Royal 'protesters' story thats been running all day on all channels (thought crime?) "They had to ensure the smooth running of a once in a generational event." I immediately thought of Covid being constantly referred to as once in a generation, and that the quote above applies just as well to that con as well.
  17. On the radio 'they' were discussing that protesters ... might throw rape alarms at the horses ... according to intelligence ... although they don't know anymore about it, or where the intelligence came from, etc. They disgust me with their perpetual wars. Creating problems and finding solutions. _____ I heard yesterday that all the guests went through airport style security. Except the likes of Ant and Dec I suppose ...
  18. I find Penny Mordaunt interesting. There's been a lot of talk of her, she was one of the names up for PM, was part of the rituals after the Queens death was announced, as Head of the privy Council that (so called) advises the King. And now there's the carrying of the sword, and her carefully designed and hand embroidered outfit. Naturally she was interviewed by Lorraine Kelly. ("The Rt Hon Penny Mordaunt MP was appointed as Lord President of the Council and Leader of the House of Commons in September 2022. ") Last autumn I read about the devilish connections to her name, and now some celebrity calls her outfit damn fine. They can openly call yesterdays service a ritual and you won't notice unless you notice. Then once you do; it's one thing after another, eh?
  19. That's Bath Royal Crescent. Quite a good example perhaps, of how 'we' shit on our own doorstep. Kids eh?! I'll give it a half laugh so as not to be too serious!
  20. The coronation chair ... "Beneath the seat we have the stone of destiny" "Edward the 1st nicked it basically" "The anointing will be behind a screen" "Why is that shielded from the public?" "That is between the king and God" - The archbishop
  21. ( Charles has been speaking for years about the environment ) ... which was pilloried at the time, but is now seen as mainstream ( this is the tone of the spin of late) He's the leader of a great nation so he carries a lot of weight, that a lot of people don't. The king cares about children, and teaching them ... and the environment isn't political it's about his own grandchidren's future ______ He's well briefed, well not well briefed, it's a passion - Jamie Oliver When the king lends his name to something does it give it more support? It can do. He's in it for the long game. I consider him my boss. He has to be careful, right? Even though he's an advocate of organic farming, he supports all farming. I've always found him an incredible ally ... I'm not sure the Queen has time for cooking, but I was the first one to christen their kitchen ... (Oliver) ______ Most of the military personnel have been up since 3.30 ... you can feel the anticipation. ______ She will watch the procession, or her statue will watch the procession. (Queen Victoria)
  22. He has a deep love of the arts and comedy ... ... Which gives me great great hope for his reign ahead - Michael Palin
  23. It is the only object of the regalia that survived the English revolution. Conversation on the BBC about Queen Mary's Crown that will be worn by Camilla today.
  24. In early October 1984, Kelly joined TV-am as Scotland Correspondent. On the back of her coverage of the Pan Am Flight 103 disaster in Lockerbie. (She's been a sort of gatekeeper for 40 years. Piers Morgan once called her a godess, is that some ceremonial title and an in joke or something?
