    The “no” campaign are desperate. Next week, they will be announcing that if it is a boy, his name will be Jock.

    Oh FFS…. Really!? Nothing against England, but why the hell would Irish people care about a “royal” birth. Surely we have more cop on in being able to look at that clown show and say “hey, it’s impressive these totally average people have managed to fool a nation for thousands of years into thinking their somehow special” but are we as Irish people actually subscribing to that farce, and if we are should you not also be reporting about royal births from around the world. Why focus on these lads? Sure, the Queen (or as I should say, the English Queen) seems very good a PR and as a statesman has done her office proud especially in recent times from an Irish perspective, but does that mean we have to obsess over this shite?

      You cared enough to comment on it.

      Some people are interested in celebrities, some are not. She would be fairly famous as celebrities go, so her being pregnant is considered newsworthy.

      I agree with your sentiments. I would be even happier if the Irish would drop their interest in the other empire, the Roman one.

      Why do people care about 11 strangers kicking a ball around a some grass?

      Or 5 dole escaped dopes caterwauling and creating noise pollution?

      People like different things than you. Lots more people like them than don’t. Accept it.

    More glittery distraction for halfwits, celebrating another addition to their unelected ruling family who can dissolve British parliament through Royal prerogative if they so wish.

    Trumpeting a feudal system of self appointed rulers of people is a sad reflection on how little people know about politics, history and what true democracy means.

    Bring on the breakup of the UK and it’s replacement with truly democratic constitutional republics.

    Let the Hello Magazine buying lazy brains find something else to gawp at.

      It must be exhausting being the most cynical lad in 6th year.

      Still, the coolness factor must be a fannymagnet.

      Is the alternative better? Have a careerist politician like Sarkosy or a idiot like George Bush Jnr? Mosy British people I have raised this issue with shudder at the idea of an elected head of state.
      Who would they end up with Tony Blair, Iain Duncan Smith, Boris Johnson,
      There is very little republican sentiment within Britain, even most Scots want to keep QE2 as head of state

        surely the 9% ministerial pay rise they’ve given themselves will attract a higher calibre of candidate.

      Judging by the emotional hullabaloo and knicker-wetting from some nearby twenty something colleagues of both gender, no…..Royalism is alive and well in the Colony.

      Yeah, it’s not just a generational thing. It’s Glamorous and Fabulous and Aspirational. People will always buy into that.

  4. Humans eh!

    Due to morning sickness Kate pulled out of an engagement today.

    If Will had pulled out – she would have made it!

      How terribly naughty of you to propose coitus interruptus as a means to restrict the royal family’s demographic expansion.

    Jaysus they’re like rabbits with all their breeding and stuff, a second child no less. One’s not good enough for them, huh?
