Err, yes?

As Meghan has learned, the monarchy is still built on breeding, ancestry and caste

What is monarchy without those three things?

  1. It used to be about who had the biggest army and could fight best. Maybe we should decide succession by MMA cage fights? It would certain get good TV ratings.

  2. There is a massive gulf between “i wonder what his colouring will be?” to “will he be pale enough for a [British] Royal?” – if your knives are out for an institution then the latter is what you’ll go for. But also, to an extent, the sussex’s are just playing the tabloid game. The first sentence is probably heard by every new British mum. Yes new mums are quite understandably hyper sensitive so best just to keep schtum. Newly Royal New Mums doubly so. The second sentence is what the tabloid editor knows sells papers. And Meghan and Harry are in that biz now.

  3. The merest suggestion of Black genes entering the bloodstream of the Saxe-Coburg-Windsor dynasty made this already fragile little country start to tear apart.

    Lol.

    Nadifa Mohamed is a British-Somali novelist

    I can tell.

    I dread to think what would have happened to Meghan if she’d had the temerity to marry the heir rather than the spare.

    Light Brown Fiat Uno, natch.

  4. @Steve… I reckon that “the heir” appears to have far more common-sense than “the spare”.

  5. the monarchy is still built on breeding, ancestry and caste

    Just like Indians or Jews then? I’m sure our heroic correspondent will be getting round to them next.

    It is easy for me and others to adopt a posture of defensive silence, never talking about the toll of living, studying and working in environments where we are the only ones.

    Why should non-English people feel comfortable in England? They didn’t create it; it’s not their country.

    Of course, Ms Mohamed is always free to return to her non-judgemental, totally modern homeland that is Somalia. I’d give very good odds that she won’t though.

  6. “I reckon that “the heir” appears to have far more common-sense than “the spare”.”

    If only that were true of the previous generation.

  7. BJ – It’s hard to see what Harry’s getting out of being the junior partner in a BPD narcissist’s circus of attention-whorery (I presume the blowjobs dried up long ago), but obviously it’s something.

    Maybe we’ll find out what when Megs divorces him and publishes a tell-all book.

    I don’t think Princess Anne was included in the spares.

    So, about 18 months’ time, then?

    I keep being reminded of this piece of doggerel:
    There once was a girl from Milwaukee,
    Who had an affair with a darkie.
    The result of their sins
    Was two sets of twins:
    One black, one white and two khaki.

  10. It’s hard to see what Harry’s getting out of being the junior partner in a BPD narcissist’s circus of attention-whorery

    I reckon it’s because he can’t see any alternative.

    Harry has literally been taken thousands of miles away from his friends and family and is totally reliant on his wife and her friends and minions for help and advice. Not a healthy situation for someone who seems as emotionally vulnerable as him.

  11. CM – it’s definitely in the post. She’s a textbook narcissist:

    * an inflated sense of their own importance
    * a deep need for excessive attention and admiration
    * troubled relationships
    * a lack of empathy for others.

    Harry’s usefulness to her is already in decline.

    Jon – it is hard for a boy to become a man. But Harry is 36. If he hasn’t figured out how to be a man by now, he never will.

  12. One of the reasons that I stopped following many blogs was that I became fed up with half-arsed, half-baked blog entries based on half (or less) of the information. I never started my own blog, because I realised that I would be the same and come across as some sort of cross between Pooter and Enoch Powell.
    So it REALLY annoys me that the Grauniad actually pays people to write this crap.

  13. living, studying and working in environments where we are the only ones

    If only. Arseholes like you are two a penny, love.

  14. Not that I give two shits, but all this was so drearily predictable.

    The cathedral is getting tedious.

  15. I haven’t followed this bollocks but a brief scan of the headlines this evening indicates that Meghan’s race card has won the game. The Queen’s statement gives credence to it. Piers Morgan (the other big queen) has been cancelled and lost his job. What fun.

  16. PJF – The Queen’s statement gives credence to it.

    If you read it, it actually very politely calls her a lying tart (I paraphrase slightly), but yarp – it’s obvious the Firm’s PR people have no idea how to deal with woke brigading. They might want to brush up on that – either don’t respond at all, or go full Henry VIII, anything else is taken as an admission of guilt.

    Re: Piers Morgan, lol.

    The biggest loser out of this is Sir Keir Starmer, who still seems to be confusing Twitter with the electorate. I reckon the public would unironically be in favour of Slightly Brown Fiat Unos for Ginge and Whinge at this point, so naturally Starmey comes out with some weak wibble about waythism that won’t endear him to either normal voters or permanently raging blackademics who hate everything about wypipo except our money and living in our country.

  17. You’d have thought she’d be a shoe-in for adapting to a screwed-up family. Apparently it needed screwing up a bit more to meet her standards.
