Well in the last couple of days I've seen ads for up and coming 'Love your local royalty shows' It looks like they're going to be crammed down our throats for weeks to come. I've been told how we're all 'thrilled' and 'proud' and 'excited' at the prospect of some rich hoi poloi getting married. Same with the up and coming Olympics...Well I for one am totally underwhelmed. How the hell the media expect the average man in the street to be jumping up and down with joy when half the country is suffering huge tax and bills increases...not to mention the misery of unemployment.I don't know. By the way...are we still in Afghanistan?...Hows it going out there?...Any recent deaths? It's all gone very quiet with the media concentrating on Libya,Japan and royalty 'aint it? Ah well...with the recent riots in London and a car bomb in Ireland I suppose they'll be spending lots more millions of our money on security for the up and coming extravaganzas.
