    I assumed the brolly incident was a set up as he had not fallen in a stream (AKA burn) or got stuck on a zip wire for a while and his [ahem] "loveable bumbling ****" rating had dipped.

    As if the Planet did not have enough to worry about.
    Of course on past posts Learning and Squeamish may aver - "this is a good thing".o_O
    Edit - Are they winding us up? I certainly hope so.:)

    I like the expression on the bobbies face.
    If they ever get dis-satisfied with each other after Boris leaves office (Not nice I know, but it could happen) then we might even feel sorry for Boris. The child maintenance costs would be huge. I wonder if Eton offers bulk discounts.

    That even applies to those who know what a moral compass is.

    Child maintenance for five kids in a way to which they are accustomed might prove you wrong Willie.

    Most general estimate (given the lying Barsteward refuses to say) is 7 so this new legit will take the general estimate to 8 - well into compulsaryy ........ IMO.:)

    I remember being Peed aff when as a then higher rate tax payer I started to get annual tax forms to fill in because Big Gordie Broon (Chancellor) had decided with his brain the size of Canada that anyone in the higher tax bracket must have loads o' freebies like cleaners and nannies. Misguided idiot must have cost the country a fortune. However, does anyone seriously believe Prince and Princess LaLa will be footing the bill for child care and nappy services themselves or do we think they will be stiffing thee and me and the poorest basic rate tax payers?
    Just asking.

    Do not tar me with that brush. I consider the man a dangerous bumbling idiot, so far out of his depth that he is in imminent danger of drowning. However, I do not judge a public persona by private characteristics. After all, Hitler loved dogs.

    ...or so herr Goebells told us. It was alleged that not all dogs reciprocated and found themselves with less congenial duties. :confused:

    It looks like Charles is probably thinking, 'Whoever it was decided I sit next to this contemptible bell-ender, deserves to be royally broom-handled.'
