  • My Life and Times

    I was born in 1939 BC.
    That’s ‘Before Computers’.

    Luckily I survived the following events in my life, such as

    World War II, The London Blitz, Rationing, and worst of all… Archbishop Temple’s School.




    During the mid 1950s I was enjoying Rock ‘n’ Roll and being a first generation teenager, when suddenly, just like Elvis, I found myself in uniform during ‘The Cold War’…and then




    I became ‘a family’. Which meant that I sort of missed the ‘swinging sixties’, but still managed to look a complete prat in the 70s, just like everyone else.




    During the ‘Thatcher Years’ I lost my hair and a lot of people lost a good deal more. My career fluctuated to say the least as I was demoted, promoted, fired and hired a number of times, but still I managed to stagger on into a welcome retirement and to celebrate 56 years of happy marriage.

Who’s been a naughty boy then ? .. Part 2

Posted by Big John on September 7, 2012

It’s only been a couple of weeks since the ‘ginger spare’ was enjoying himself in Las Vegas and showing the whole world what a true prince prat he was, and during that short space of time the Palace spin machine has, predictably, gone into overdrive to ‘create’ yet another new image for ‘Hooray Harry’.

I was almost in tears (a new British trend) as I watched him doing his ‘my mum used to do this’ act at the ‘Well Child Awards’, and the lump grew in my throat as I saw him posing with all those brave disabled athletes at the Paralympics.

Now it would seem that it is the playboy prince’s turn to be brave, as we learn that he has been ‘whisked off’ to Afghanistan to face the Taliban.

I do wish him a safe return to these shores, but have to wonder if this is just the final part of a triple stunt in the never ending PR campaign to keep him and his pampered and privilaged family in the manner to which …

…  they have become so very much accustomed ?

    I had the same thoughts John as I watched the progression from “naughty boy” to “hero” … it’s pretty amazing how the public gobbles up the media hype. (Our politicians are experts at this). I do wish him well, as I’m sure we all do but a Princess Diana he isn’t !

  3. One must wonder why good people would continue to keep expensive ceremonial “royals” around.
