    How could he be "slightly guilty"?
    I've caught eels that squirmed less than him...

    I love his reply to the question about whether he did it, " I dont remember". I don't remember the vast majority of the beers I've drunk. Doesnt mean I didnt drink em!

    He said he doesn't know where the bar is and never bought a drink in the place he was supposed to have met her but he doesn't remember meeting her :tinhat:

    Get rid of the lot of them, from top to bottom, and let Britain evolve out of the Middle Ages. Even if dear Tim made Buckingham Palace into a Wetherspoons it'd be worth it. It's only from the outside that you can see that the British psyche is fully signed up to the feudal system.

    Exactly. It's called "entitlement". You could almost hear him thinking "What's the problem? People like me can do what they like with impunity." As he condescends to try to show that he really does have a human side to his adoring public. Pass me the vomit pot.

    I would rather have a royal family which brings in millions of visitors than what the Americans have.

    Do you think it's the royal family that brings in the tourists, or the history and sights? It's not like France is short of tourists and they gave their lot the chop!

    It's worth bearing in mind that he isn't a genuine prince, and there can be no doubt that he is fully aware of that. I believe "soaking the system" is one of the appropriate terms; there are others, some of which are distinctly impolite. To be a prince his (grand)parent(s) would have to be king or queen, and Mrs Windsor, on whom he bases his claim to be a prince, is not the genuine monarch.
    This has previously been mentioned; I don't know how to create a link to an earlier post in a different thread, but I'll try. If I fail, it's post 34 on

    Incidentally, ref the poll, for ignorant peasants such as me, what is a "massive nonce"? The "massive" part I understand, but "nonce" is outside my knowledge. What does it mean? My dictionary suggests that it is similar to "once" in meaning, which makes no sense in this context, and it is silent about any other meaning.

    I was comparing what we have to the american alternative which at the moment is Trump.


    When Prince William married Kate Middleton in April 2011, the UK’s Association of Leading Visitor Attractions claimed it:
    Saw an additional 600,000 people come to London for the weekend, 60% from UK, 40% from overseas, spending £107m … The value to ‘brand Britain’ due to global media coverage was approximately £1 billion.


    A spokesperson for VisitBritain, quoted in the International Business Times, November 27, 2017.

    Regardless of whether you are a royalist or not, the royal family undeniably attracts public interest around the UK and internationally. Visits and tours by the royals generate extensive media attention – as well as tourists.

    Love it or hate it, the pomp and pageantry associated with British royalty, whether routine events such as trooping the colour or anniversaries such as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, are rarely found in any other country. These public ceremonies, in addition to parts of the estates owned by the royal family, are important in attracting tourists.

    VisitBritain reported that, globally, more than two billion people watched the wedding ceremony, with its content aired by key broadcasters internationally. It wasn’t just visitors to London that increased – the Office for National Statistics reported that during April 2011, an extra 350,000 visitors travelled to the UK compared to 2010. Tourism also flourished on the island of Anglesey in Wales, where the royal couple lived after the wedding. Tourism managers said William and Kate brought priceless publicity and some tourism businesses reported a 20% increase in business in 2011.

    I was reading about their impact this morning and basically it's actually pretty hard to measure whether they have a positive effect or not. To counter VisitBritain, who I imagine are pro royalists, they didn't take into account the number of people who left the UK that weekend.

    £107 million isn't actually that much, considering tourism in general brings in £22.5 billion. Some consider the the actual cost of the Royal Family is closer to £350 million anyway.

    All this comes from https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...fits-cost-meghan-markle-expense-a8345436.html
