I thought his wife’s problem was that she was a grasping, manipulative, gold-digging divorcee. Just like Mrs. Simpson was. Nothing good will come of their facade of a marriage. JuliaM October 21, 2020 at 7:00 am What John Galt said. In spades. MC October 21, 2020 at 7:03 am Nothing good will come of their facade of a marriage I disagree. She has removed a simple weakling from the line of succession. Not quite as vital a service as Mrs Simpson provided in ridding us of a lackwitted, Nazi-leaning king, but worthwhile nonetheless. I wonder how long it will be before the papers stop bothering to report Harry’s ramblings? Mr Womby October 21, 2020 at 7:57 am I enjoyed the headline in yesterday’s Mail, “John Leslie cleared after 29 minutes of sexual groping “. Brings a whole new meaning to ‘getting off in court’. Mr Ecks October 21, 2020 at 7:59 am were I PM I would ask the Queen to save the Monarchy by fixing the succession on Anne and her line. Bloke in Lower Hutt in Woking October 21, 2020 at 8:40 am To be fair he’s not actually wrong with that statement, he just not right in the way he thinks he is. The Meissen Bison October 21, 2020 at 8:50 am DM, or perhaps the MoS? John Galt: Nothing good will come of their facade of a marriage. Oh I don’t know so much – this concatenation of pratfalls brings laughter to millions and the piquancy is enhanced by the conviction that vacuous and ill-informed pronouncements issued from a pedestal of privilege will be a guide to humble folk. Tony October 21, 2020 at 8:52 am Mr Ecks I hope that your advisers would draw your attention to the Bill of Rights and the Act of Succession and explain that Parliament has the power to decide the line of succession. My suggestion would be to introduce a “fit and proper” test and then start trawling for ‘victims’. John Galt October 21, 2020 at 9:21 am My suggestion would be to introduce a “fit and proper” test and then start trawling for ‘victims’. I seem to recall that the last time we did this sifting about for a monarch we ended up with George, Elector of Hanover becoming the King. This was despite discarding about 50 candidates with closer blood ties. So not a lot of praise for the king hunting thing. We’ve had 1 Civil War, 1 restoration and 1 Glorious revolution to prove the point that it is Parliament that is sovereign and only in as far as it is elected by the people. So if and when Chuckles Buggerlugs III does ascend the throne it will be on parliamentary terms not Chuckovian ones. Personally I’d give him 5 years at the most before being forced to abdicate. Then again, Parliament would be well within their rights to refuse Chuckles the crown. I’d like to be a fly on the wall in that discussion though… Still. I will take a powerless stuffed shirt like Chuckles over President Tony Bliar any day of the week. Sam Vara October 21, 2020 at 10:07 am “The Duke of Sussex has warned that misinformation “snowballs” from the internet into real life, hampering progress and distracting people from issues that they should be focusing on….” Doubtless Harry will tell us what issues we should be focusing on. But how can I believe it? Everything I read about Harry is on the internet… Roué le Jour October 21, 2020 at 11:08 am Ecks, Enthusiastically seconded. Queen Anne has a nice ring to it. Royal motto “Not bloody likely!” Gamecock October 21, 2020 at 12:45 pm Why discuss the opposition’s points when you can simply dismiss them as ‘misinformation?’ The Left lost their debating skills under President Clinton. “No personal attack ever fed a hungry child.” The press was stunned that it was an effective defense. Then they adopted it. Why debate when you can demonize the opposition? That’s when the fascist Democrats turned into Nazis. Harry’s assertion is that anyone against thems is proffering misinformation, hence they are evil. Next step: it’s okay to kill them and take there stuff. PJF October 21, 2020 at 5:43 pm She has removed a simple weakling from the line of succession. In what way has Harry’s marriage to Meghan altered his position in line? Theophrastus October 21, 2020 at 8:24 pm Save the Monarchy by fixing the succession on Anne and her line? Er…Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips? So Much For Subtlety October 21, 2020 at 10:47 pm John Galt October 21, 2020 at 6:24 am – “I thought his wife’s problem was that she was a grasping, manipulative, gold-digging divorcee. Just like Mrs. Simpson was. Nothing good will come of their facade of a marriage.” +10. But I am hopeful one good thing will come out of this. That one day the scales will fall from his eyes. One day he will realise. And dump the bitch. Then we might have an educational and useful conversation. johnnybonk October 22, 2020 at 1:06 pm “I enjoyed the headline in yesterday’s Mail, “John Leslie cleared after 29 minutes of sexual groping “.
