  • 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.

A ‘royal’ removed from reality.

Posted by Big John on January 7, 2013

So poor old Charlie is worried about who will sit on the throne in future. Well as far as I’m concerned, a chimpanzee would do just as well as another member of the ‘inbred’ Saxe-Coburg-Gotha line. In fact, it wouldn’t matter if the chimp was female or Roman Catholic, and it would certainly be a great deal cheaper to keep a whole family of apes living in all those palaces than the tribe inhabiting them at the present time. I doubt if many people would notice the difference once the more clever primates had been let loose with the old royal dressing up box. 

Ah! Palaces … That reminds me. I see that Willy and Kate are in line for a nice little ‘country pile‘ in Norfolk where, can you believe ?, Willy’s dad used to take Cruella Camilla for ‘dirty weekends’. They are also waiting to move into splendid luxury apartments in London’s Kensington Palace which are being refurbished, at present, with tax payers’ money which could have been better spent elsewhere.

When being interviewed the potty prince said he did not want to .. “hand on an increasingly dysfunctional world” .. to his future grandchild. He forgot to mention that the pampered little brat will be a member of one of the …

…  most dysfunctional families seen in recent times !
