Do you think we’ll get this many?

Disappointing – what’s wrong with these people? Wait, try a different angle:

  1. So the Dook o’ Embra finally snuffed it – enjoy yerr 24/7 somber music and nonstop polishing the turd weeks of mourning. Footie players will stand for two minutes silence before taking a knee in the fight against racial discrimination right after they have just stood at attention to honour the Prince of Fu*in’ Racism…

  2. Come on, a bit of respect. “Stavros” came to the UK as a peniless Prince of Greece and Denmark. He was sent to an austere school in Morayshire, his fees paid by a distant family member. He went on to become the only new Duke appointed post WWII, purely because the then King’s eldest daughter fell madly in love with him, aged 13.

    hey married, then, when her father died, he was instantly promoted from Lieutenant Commander RN to Admiral of the Fleet, with further promotions to Field Marshall and Marshall of the RAF quickly following.

    Let us therefore salute the luckiest bar steward ever born on a kitchen table in a villa on Corfu. It could happen to any Stavros under this wonderful UK system of government.
