I’m not seeing a great need for a bunch of hereditary Kardashians.
But there is no such man; for, brother, men
Can counsel and speak comfort to that grief
Which they themselves not feel; but, tasting it,
Their counsel turns to passion, which before
Would give preceptial medicine to rage,
Fetter strong madness in a silken thread,
Charm ache with air and agony with words.
“urhm…have them elide that last three pentameters - it’s all much ado about nothing …withal.”
If the accusations aren’t true (not clear from this summary), it doesn’t seem illegitimate for anyone to ask that they aren’t broadcast, or unreasonable for a TV company to do so…
The Daily Beast , quoting The Daily Mail
At least you know not to click on any of those links.
I mean, isn’t Harry’s mental health struggles now kind of very public, since he’s basically started a career trying to get people to pay attention their mental health. As such, he’s been publicly disclosing his own struggles and how he has dealt with them, yes?
I almost care.
His father seems such a stable individual; I guess that this argues more for William’s issues (if any) being more to do with nurture rather than nature.
I don’t understand what the last paragraph has to do with the rest of the story.
I have no idea why the Daily Beast covers the royals. Aren’t they American? Luckily, they have enough other stuff that amuses.
But Harry is truly the Punk Rock Prince
Royalty is what draws tourists to the UK and substantially fuels its economy. No one goes there for the “Bubble and Squeak”. So the royals – however ‘criminally’ entitled and dysfunctional – will be kept around. The London Stock Exchange demands it.
Is this still the only argument royalists have to wheel out?
No one coming to England gets to see the queen. They’ll still be able to look at Buckingham palace and the Crown jewels if they lived in a country estate with no actual power.
If tourists liked coming here to see a giant hole full of burning tyres would we insist on preserving that too?
The UK should replace the royal family with some other famous family. Take the Kardashians, please!
No seriously, the UK should phase out the whole monarchy thing and replace it by taking the Kardashians (please!). That would still bring in tourism, and it would be to the benefit of both countries!
The Kardashians are who I bring up whenever I’m arguing in favour of monarchy.
I’m not a monarchist, and I’ve got no time for them. But it seems like people want someone to look up to for no good reason, so why not have people born into the job? Otherwise, you’ll get the Kardashians.
Tongue is mostly in cheek when I say these things. Mostly.
Don’t underestimate the bizarre inexplicable thrill of watching tyres burn.
The Bubble died in April.
