The Royal Princes are following in the footsteps of some 'greats' 'Flanagan and Allan' 'Mike and Bernie Winters' and 'Morecambe and Wise' to name a few, great entertainers all.
They should be proud of keeping up the tradition, it's in the genes, look at Grampa Phil. uncle Andy, uncle Eddie and the late 'barking mad Maggie' who was kept in the attic, family parties must be a hoot.
I've said before that if these people didn't exist I'd have to invent them, the baton of lumpen stupidity has been passed to a new generation, and the puppet masters who orchestrate this 'end of the pier' farce seem confident that an easily led public, urged on by a craven establishment and sycophantic media will allow it to survive 'ad nauseam'
Why do I return to this now ? well another stunt has just been pulled by getting 'Wingco Willie' to fly to Afghanistan for a couple of hours, do a photo shoot and fly back.
Something had to be done following his antics with the helicopters which he used 5 times to joy ride with his pals, costing us thousands of pounds, he landed at the main air base, nowhere near danger and was away again before anyone knew he was there.
He returned with the remains of a dead soldier on board, Trooper Robert Pearson, does it get any more revolting than this ? a shallow stunt and an insult to Trooper Pearson and his family as well as the other military personnel who face real danger, this is not the Prince's fault it's the corrupt decadent system of Monarchy that is to blame, these people have no sense of shame or decency and some fawning, grovelling people still salute them.
This was closely followed by an announcement that Harry was to be awarded a medal for dropping in on Afghanistan surrounded by personal bodyguards in another shameless stunt.
Will William get a medal to ? it's only fair, he went as well and was in as much danger as Harry, which is to say, no danger at all.
It has become impossible to conclude anything other than that the Monarchy holds the people of this country in contempt.
I remember as a kid wearing war medals with my brothers which were won by my dad, he was not concerned in the least that we were running around with these medals pinned on and he kept them in a shoe box, they were inevitably lost and he didn't give a damn about that either, the older I get and the more I observe, the more I learn to understand his attitude. .
