Ginger Prince to marry

Postby Heid the Ba » Mon Nov 27, 2017 2:48 pm

As individuals I wish them well, while wanting the monarchy as an institution to end. I might be a cynical republican but I'm an old romantic cynical republican. What is hilarious is the media tying themselves in knots trying to choose between "War hero Harry marries stunner/darkie divorcee/gold digging tart/nice exotic lady". I'm curious whether Brexitshire's love of Diana will outweigh its hatred of brown people.

Ah, royal weddings.

Spoiler:

Still, it should draw the attention of idiots away from Brexit.

ETA - Harry's really starting to look like his father. Whoever that is.

Which leads me to: I was thinking the other day, if Scotland became independent, would you likely retain a relation to the monarchy, like (if I am not mistaken) Canada does? Or would it become, "she's THEIR Queen, not ours." I am thinking more institutionally, not "in the hearts of men".

The plan is to leave the monarchy in place, at least in the short term. It's likely there would be a referendum about it at some point subsequently.

Here's the levels of don't-give-a-shitness across the UK, broken down by region.

Oddly, the BBC can only find fawning lunatics drapped in the Butcher's Apron whenever they interview the public about it.

I'm assuming the "Disappointed" crowd have a strong correlation to the "I don't like darkies" crowd and the "don't knows" were licking the bus stop windows. Of the options I would be indifferent.

That's what I would assume too, and "indifferent" isn't really a strong enough term but would be the closest match for me too.

Or maybe the "don't knows" just don't want to admit they are actually "I don't like darkies".

The BBC being sycophantic you say? If I had taken the Mem to a shithole like Nottingham she'd never have spoken to me again.

Indeed, same here. The BBC have an amazing ability to find and interview folk from the 44% "gawd bless'ur" crowd, and none from the 48% "don't give a shit, mate" lot. Assuming Nottingham, being outside the M25, is "North".

Probably "Midlands". For a town that is about 20% Asian and 10% Black that is a stunningly white crowd. They managed to find a Kazakh and a Canuckistani but not a single non-white Briton.

I'm surprised that not a single category is over 50% "pleased". I'm surprised at the 7% "disappointed" in London, unless that is strongly "female, 25-35, ABC1" who are only disappointed it isn't them. My demographic is 54, 55, 62 and 62% disinterested.

I've hatched my royal wedding avoidance plan. From Friday evening until Sunday afternoon I'll be living here with a tent, my wife, my kayak, and a metric fuck-load of booze. Probably some firelighters and sausages, too.

Camped there a few times, it's perfect, and the location is stunning. Google maps doesn't do it justice. I should take my metal detector, as the equivalent of millions of pounds was hidden somewhere along the loch in 1746. I suspect it was all dug up and embezzled shortly afterwards, but careful scrutiny of historical documents and maps has led me to suspect a likely area for where it was hidden and there may be the odd dropped coin or two thereabouts. On the far side of the loch, where there are no roads or paths, unfortunately. But then, I will have my kayak..... Anyway, it's guaranteed to be better than having to suffer the inescapable coverage and fawning that will pollute all media that day.

I'd love to be there with you. But yes, please go find some coins.

I didn't have room to pack the metal detector or the kayak, so have yet to become a millionaire.
