NewDave: I don't understand what Harry & Meghan have done wrong. Other younger children, notably Andrew and Margaret, made a total hash of things and Edward's It's A Knockout could make an angel cringe.

NewDave: All they want to do is encourage people to be nicer to each other and run the Invictus games. Naive? Probably. But it's hardly hanging out with paedophiles. In a normal world they would not be considered mildly controversial, never mind persona non grata.

Akquarius: I'm so glad we ended aristocracy in one of the few revolutions we had

curmudgeon: Harry & current wife joined the firm and were welcomed.Then said they didn't want the job of being lifelong smile'n'nod royals -opening schools,hospital etc., and suggested an alternative to Auntie Brenda who said in or out. Queenie said "Orft you bugger!

NewDave: Well we don't know exactly what was said and why - all we have is rumour from people whose business is to purvey gossip but regardless they have gone and yet they are pilloried daily in the press. They were before they left, they are now.

NewDave: Funny story. I can't sweat. Old war wound y'know. Ha. Ha ha ha. All those teenage girls? Never noticed. Why would you?

NewDave: As I said, in a normal world they would be left alone and the focus would be on Andrew. Instead a family with a new baby is being mercilessly attacked on a daily basis by a press who seemingly won't be happy until it destroys them.

NewDave: Whatever crimes it is imagined that they have committed, they don't deserve this.

NewDave: I just have to say DAMN this guitar playing thing is addictive. I'm loving it right now. Just watched a Tommy Emmanuel video. He said you're learning skills. You keep practising the skills and suddenly, as if by magic, it turns into music. Loving it.

NewDave: I have this horrible feeling that Trump is going to get re-elected.

scorpiodog: Depends on what the Russians want. Or the Chinese. Or the billionaires. Or the lizard people. BTW, do the lizard people come from West Cornwall, or am I mixing that up with motorway pasties?

NewDave: I'm going to the shop to buy ice cream. And I'm probably going to eat it all in one sitting. So there.

NewDave: Stockpile food in preparation for next year and buy anything you need that has to come from outside of the UK asap. Next year is going to be hell and people will be shopping for Xmas at the same time as trying to prepare for no-deal or tiny deal Brexit.

NewDave: If you start now and buy a few extra things every week then not only will you have a respectable store cupboard by November and so avoid the panic buying, you'll also put a lot less strain on the system and make life a bit easier for everyone else.

NewDave: And if a miracle happens and you don't need it you can always donate to a food bank. They'll need it.

NewDave: Or I suppose you could "Check. Change. Go." But personally I don't think that's going to help you very much since no-one seems to know what to check, how to change or where to go.

NewDave: I'm fat, I'm over fifty and I'm about to go out on some roller skates.

robmc: I was a child of the early 80s... It was all about Evel Knievel and roller skates. Had a bad accident concerning my buttocks...
