The Sunday papers are strange when you find yourself in them and I can confirm that they don't like criticism, The Sunday Times carries a story about me and the Harry business which condemns me quite strongly.
Other papers TV journalists and letter writers such as The Guardian, New Statesman, Jon Snow, Max Clifford etc. are on record as sharing my scepticism over the whole affair so I ask myself why do these mighty Sunday blats want me dead ?
The Times says nothing new and continues to call me a Labour Aide but here's what it's about.
He, (Kelly) is an associate of guess who ? yes Wendy, she should sack him they say ! from what ? I say, I don't hold any position and they know that, they are in the gutter again, the persecution of Wendy is running out of steam if this is what they are reduced to, The Times, once called "The Thunderer" used to have a good reputation.
The Guardian carries a piece by an ex Army soldier who seen action in Iraq and Afghanistan and has written a book about it which has him saying ' the Harry at war adulation has caused anger at the grass roots where the hero prince doesn't wash'
The new Statesman carries Harry's spoof diary where he says the following among other things :- "I hate England, I hate the fact that I might never kill again, and I hate those poo-shites in the press, even though the only reason I got to fire the big gun was because they were filming me" and "I wish they'd left me there alone taking out the Taliban one Terry at a time. A lone mercenary can definitely win an Afghan war, I saw it in Rambo 3. Doesn't sound as if they buy it does it ?
One part of this elaborate confidence trick according to today's papers is already beginning to work, army recruitment figures are on the rise ! The second part of the 'quid pro quo' though, Harry's rehabilitation from gossip column fodder to soldier prince is stuttering, that will be harder as more and more people rumble the con trick.
The SNP had to get into it right ? MSP and protector of British Royalty Keith Brown (Falklands Veteran) said my remarks were "appalling" and "this man has no idea what it's like to serve on the front line" he also tries to link it to Wendy.
Where are these modern nationalists coming from ? the real SNP would not lift a finger to help the British Monarchy and now they put forward this forelock tugger Brown to help the prince, what happened to independence ? where are the real SNP ?
He is of course right about one thing I've never been on the front line, so I will defer to his military experience and ask him this question -
SNP MSP Keith Brown (ex Army) can you confirm to me that front line troops all operate with their own personal bodyguard of Gurkhas and SAS men just like our own 'one of the lads' Prince Harry ?
