The honest cabbie fruit and veg bricklayer For some reason this person actually believes that the Royal family are looking out for them and their families in some form of all seeing religious benevolence. They live their lives in a Dads Army style fantasy where the Queen Mother...

I’ve often thought of the Royal Family in this country as a West End show. The West End show. Overly colourful adverts at every bus stop and full page ads in the tabloid of choice, all topped off with five star recommendations from the idiot Saturday night cockney. Every...

A few years ago I wrote about The sanitisation of war, how our media have come to depict warfare in general as not only just, but as a simple story of good against evil in the manner of a Commando comic. On page 47 of today’s free Sport magazine, the Royal Air Force have taken...

I usually stop just outside Blackfriars to survey the days papers, a quick glance across the multicoloured collage of sex, hate and economic meltdown. As predictable as it is amusing, especially last week when I spotted a story about the Saindi family from Afghanistan who’d apparently...

This weekend provided yet another prime opportunity for the family Windsor to indulge in that time honoured royal tradition of dressing up. Getting decked out in whatever military uniform takes ones fancy for an appearance on the balcony, where an adoring public will clap like sheep...

Today the BBC reported on figures published concerning royal spending, which sounds like a damn good opportunity for a rant. It shows that the royal family cost us 36 Million pounds last year, this in itself makes it sound like something that we are privileged to invest in. In actual...

It’s difficult to know from which angle to approach the Charles and Camilla announcement, recently I’ve taken to insults and abuse which achieves little apart from making me feel better in what is essentially a struggle that will probably never succeed. Don’t get...
