    BREXIT - The Final Countdown?

    I've seen some speculation about the long ********* thing in the press. Around the time that someone with close access to DC was suggesting that BJ would resign in the new year. This was whispered as the reason. Similarly around that time BJ was photographed out training with a PT. DC blogged in...

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    Well quite... and yet the matter of royal titles is one of great drama where M&H are concerned and of no consequence when discussing the other Royals and the HoL that we pay to assist in supporting. For my part it's really not relevant if they are "senior royals" doing "official" business -...

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    They are all human so I've no doubt they all had similar emotional journeys to the rest of us. However I question the motives of the government and the press in how these matters have been presented and publicised because I do strongly feel that the RF has been used for political mileage...

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    Yes I guess it's possible that him having caught it has made a difference. I found the knighting of Captain Tom particularly nauseating. Not because he didn't deserve it (he did a great thing no doubt) but because of the hastily arranged special socially distanced ceremony (rather than waiting...

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    On the point of the monarchy being a political or otherwise I'd be interested in your take on something @antmanb - my view is that the last 4-5 months has been the most clear example in my lifetime of how much the monarch and monarchy are political tools. I cannot recall such a sustained period...

    BREXIT - The Final Countdown?

    Around the time all member nations would have voted on such things? I wouldn't waste energy giving them the benefit of the doubt. As @allezfred said you couldn't make it up!

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    As I understand it the news was leaked to a paper and they chose to anticipate the story breaking and post it on their own website. I assume the theory was that doing so would keep them in control of the narrative. Unfortunately what appears to have happened instead is that it opened the door...

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    If she remains a steadfast friend she'll be criticised. If she distances herself she'll be accused of ditching someone because they weren't useful to her anymore (or whatever the terminology is that people use to minimise her father's/paternal family's role in the breakdown of relations). The...

    Ah I see. Thank you.

    Really, part deux

    Such very sad news. So sorry @Gerry my condolences and love to you and the children and grandchildren. Lee has been so missed here over the last few years and will continue to be missed. Thank you so much for becoming part of our family and letting us travel this road with you even if it has...

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    Seeing all those clips together is really striking. A number of us have challenged the idea that this has all been about Meghan pushing Harry in a particular direction and this compilation is a good reminder about how open Harry has been about his feelings regarding the press for a very long time.

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    Well that claim hasn't been thrown out so at the very least it seems the impact of the friends' interview on privacy isn't so clear cut as to warrant dismissal. Notwithstanding that i'm not a lawyer, I was responding to the general conversation about the fridnds' interview rather than the legal...

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    Apologies if it's been noted before playing catch up on this thread. I do think it relevant that the "friends" who spoke to People Magazine were using the letter to counter numerous claims by TM in both print and TV media that he hadn't heard from Meghan or Harry since he got sick/since before...

    BREXIT - The Final Countdown?

    Huh? I never said it was wrong for farmers to hire foreigners. I noted that they have to do so because British people don't want to do that work. I also made the point that the current situation is making it very clear that the rhetoric about foreigners "taking" British jobs is a nonsense. If...
