    Me and the missus and the nippers are over the moon to hear the news of the happy event. Gord bless yer, young majesty, yer royal honour sir!

    The Kremlin household has been agog over the past couple of days, following all the developments and the intrigue. Was he born in frogpond hospital or in the royal palace? Nobody seems sure. We've been discussing nothing else and I'm sure everyone on the board will have their own theories.

    Fortunately our royal obsession has been very well catered to by every single branch of the media, most especially the BBC, and we've been able to discover every single fascinating detail of this earth-shattering event. All those writers and broadcasters fully deserve the gongs they are angling for, gord bless 'em every one.

    Although admittedly we finds ourselves living in a bit of a thin time heeconomically speaking at the moment, we've always gort a couple of extra quid to spare when it comes to hensuring that our royal betters are living in the manner to what they 'as become haccustomed.

    Poor effort, must (and can) do better.

    As a person of middle class upbringing it always interesting to read Clive’s working class view of the people I aspire to be.

    A long held hypothesis of mine is that most socialists are monarchists.

    In the pub quiz, check that fellow who knew the third wife of the Emperor of Habsburg/Queen Victoria/the fourth wife.

    Always the telltale Fabian Society bookmark poking out of the top pocket.

    Obsession with status, class & rank.

    The Diana people. Witchell’s posse. Sucking on Markle’s teat for the latest on Albert George Horacio Beckham Windsor.

    I once had to sit on a disciplinary panel for a female colleague who, when a previous Royal Family 'miracle' was announced, had committed the heinous crime of posting on the University's staff-intranet the announcement "WOMAN GETS SOME SUPNK UP HER ****".

    *AKA pregnancy.

    Unsurprising as he is the father.




    Isn't that how it works?
     
  17. Considering Harry’s dubious ginger origins because his mother was a slut, and the fact his missus is most definitely not blue blood, how can this be classed as a royal baby? I'm surprised its even allowed in the palace and not left in the pram outside the back door.

    And it's not even inbred, so definitely not a royal. Send it to the workhouse!

    Danny Baker just got fired for something similar:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-48212693

    The now deleted tweet, which has been circulated on social media, showed an image of a couple holding hands with a chimpanzee dressed in clothes with the caption: "Royal Baby leaves hospital".
    The 5Live presenter was accused of mocking the duchess's racial heritage.
    A BBC spokesperson said: "This was a serious error of judgment."
    The corporation added that Baker's tweet "goes against the values we as a station aim to embody.
    "Danny's a brilliant broadcaster but will no longer be presenting a weekly show with us."Harry and Meghan, whose mother Doria Ragland is African American, revealed on Wednesday their new son was named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
    After an initial backlash on social media, Baker said: "Sorry my gag pic of the little fella in the posh outfit has whipped some up. Never occurred to me because, well, mind not diseased.
    "Soon as those good enough to point out its possible connotations got in touch, down it came. And that's it."
    The 61-year-old presented a weekend show on 5Live.
    Earlier, Baker told his half a million followers on Twitter that he has been doorstepped by reporters at his home, saying he was asked: "Do you think black people look like monkeys?"
    His tweet added: "No mate. Gag pic. Posh baby chimp. Alerted to circs. Appalled. Deleted. Apologised."
    In a following tweet, he added: "Would have used same stupid pic for any other Royal birth or Boris Johnson kid or even one of my own. It's a funny image. (Though not of course in that context.) Enormous mistake, for sure. Grotesque.
    "Anyway, here's to ya Archie, Sorry mate."

    That is pathetic.

    Says more about the totalitarian PC utopia that is the BBC than anything else.

    I couldn't care less about his tweet, but it's wonderful to witness his downfall and if I need to express some faux outrage to hammer a nail in his coffin then I'll do it. This whopper should have been fired a long time ago for being the most self indulgent qunt on the BBC.

    There was no genuine "mistake" - the miscalculation was he was so arrogant that he thought he could post something like that and parlay the whole thing off as "meh, what am I like eh!??!" because everyone else is so stupid.

    I don't dislike Baker, bit meh to be honest. But for the love of god you'd have to be incredibly stupid as a public figure to do what he just did by accident.
    Wonder if he'll pick up a nice contract elsewhere fairly shortly.

    As for the faux indignation, PC gone mad etc. Seriously? You can't post a picture of a chimp or monkey, suggesting it's a picture of someone with black heritage without repercussions. It's not the 70s.

    Which has nevertheless employed Baker for decades?

    There was a line and he positively triple-jumped over it. I’m sure you can see that.

    Baker blaming the BBC too.

    The call to fire me from @bbc5live was a masterclass of pompous faux-gravity. Took a tone that said I actually meant that ridiculous tweet and the BBC must uphold blah blah blah. Literally threw me under the bus. Could hear the suits knees knocking. #Fuckem
