So it is lefty madness according to one royalist sop to be appalled at this event and sorry bout the editing. It now has to be accepted That royals and so called celebrities are superior beings to whom we must revere. The victims of Grenfell in bed sits, the growing number of children in London liviing in b and bs the homeless in Windsor are an irrelevance as this happy couple retire to their 21 roomappartment and a house in the Cotswolds
Certainly not for richer and poorer but I do accept the rumours that harry is not completely royal.

This is what is called a strawman.

Why the BBS in particular?
What about the wider community?
Loads of interracial marriages and relationships. Surely, it can't be just a North London thing?

Whichever community you like. But why not our own?

Anyway, it’s all done now.

I’m not one for really jumping on board the #sexismbandwagon, but looking at Twitter I’m so surprised to see the amount of women aged below 40 who all keep talking about this in a ‘fairytale’ way. Saying bollocks like ‘dream come true’ and comparing it to Cinderella in a positive way. My point being - does society genuinely try to point young girls goals and aspirations towards basically marrying a prince? And if so, why?

Don’t get me wrong, if a fit princess wanted to marry me and it meant I could be a ‘man who lunches’, great. I would love that shit. But I never grew up seeing that as some sort of dream - that would have been playing professional sport.

Dreaming of marrying a prince like Muriel from Porpoise Spit just seems really crap.

I spend a lot of time in China (i’m Supposed to be there now as it happens). People carry umbrellas for the sun. It’s beyond weird. They’re going maybe 300m outside but they cannot let the sun’s rays touch them even then (though the rays would he going some to get through the smog).

Yet when it rains (and in the south it doesn’t mess around when it rains) no one has an umbrella, and everyone looks totally baffled as to what they’re Are supposed to do.

Very odd and quite sad too. I recall now when my girlfriend went to Tokyo she said that they had hundreds of adverts plastered everywhere for skin whitening for women. One of them even said something about how ‘you can be American too!’ Bizarre.

It's big business in the Middle east as well, adverts everywhere and go in any chemist in the UAE and the shelves are full of skin bleaching creams.

As for the sun I'm always amazed at how European origin Sydney-siders especially the business types are always pale without any signs of factor 50. I couldn't walk in the shade over there for five minutes without going red!

So you dream of playing sport professionally and girls dream of princes?

I don’t know why are you think one gender needs to be criticised but the other shouldn’t be; it strikes me that both of these come straight from childhood comics.

I’m not criticising a gender - I’m saying that comics (I would say film and tv, but I guess I’m not as old as you ) seem to push boys towards being footballers, and girls towards marrying princes. Hardly a revealing point I’m making, I just can’t see that being a particularly good thing.

Ok.
