Miserable buggers the lot of you! :D

 

I do get a bit miffed with the blanket TV coverage but it is no doubting a major event and on the whole, the UK benefits greatly from the Royal Family.

 

All the best to Will and Kate plus their new addition.

And now that his great-granny has signed off the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013, he'll be the first monarch of that great nation able to make an honest man out of his companion.

There are tax dodgers/scroungers in all walks of life! That said, I do hope the baby enjoys good health, because I'm sure no one would wish otherwise, no matter how one views royalty. 

 

Millions of pounds are spent each year, just to clear litter from our streets, countryside and beaches. Do those inconsiderate people really care about wasting taxpayers' money?

I think the law means he has to marry Norman Tebbitt's son.

A marriage made in heaven (apart from, perhaps, the age difference).

God Save The Queen!

I do like the royals and it is good news about the baby. However, talk about overkill - it was just too much. The media 'waffle' level was into overdrive.

I too like the Royals, generally because they add an extra layer of "identity" to this country in an era where all countries are politically and economically and even culturally starting to look all the bloody same (the era of Americanisation sorry Americanization)

 

I enjoyed the Diamond Jubilee celebrations a lot; the Wedding less so.

 

However this was a complete non-event and painful to watch. I was watching on ITV and I'm pretty sure one of the reporters said something like "this is one of the most magical moments of my life." when they finally left the hospital.

 

Furthermore I cannot believe that Kate was up the duff for 9 months and could not make a decision on the name. For the first few weeks of his life this baby could well be nameless. Lazy parenting already!

We should help them choose.

Following on from Mock the Week last week where they suggested Girls names that would go well with the title "Queen" and suggested "Latifa" and "'S Greatest Hits" can I propose one of the following:

 

's of Leon

Kong

Dom of Loathing

Ston Upon Hull (or Upon Thames for a more upmarket sound)

Size

Burger

I think thats a case of the parents, given their recent tribulations with snooping paparazzi, making the press play to their rules and wait

Its something they can be in control of

 Americanization

 

The 'z' is a perfectly acceptable British English spelling.  Same as with organize, recognize, etc.
