We saw Pr Anne (from a distance) when she visited Devizes. Arrived in RangeRove sandwiched between two large men, two more in front. Spent a little while making small talk and handshaking with various local boat volunteers (most likely IWA types). Short boat ride in very cramped boat watched by everybody, back to gazebo for a bit more small talk, back into the RangeRover sandwich. A quick look at the www showed she had two more engagements that day many miles apart. I assume more smalltalk and handshaking with possibly very boring people. This is my idea of HELL, I wouldn't do it for £1 million a year, but if I did I would certainly want early retirement at 50.

How much would you want to their job?????

No beer because no time for a wee, though I suspect a quick voddy might just be viable.

They are very popular with both the natives and overseas visitors, look at all those royalty magazines, and all the womens magazines. If we got rid of them then we would have to get something to replace them. We could have democratic elections. At best we might get somebody like David Beckham, at worse some B list television "personality".

I don't want their job, (if it is a job). 

I'm not envious, far from it.

No, if you can't see or understand  inequality then I don't see the point of     expanding  

It was in reference to MTB's comment on drawing straws, quite obvious to anyone. 

I'm no closet socialist. 

 And I'll ignore the rest of the dribble you wrote. 

 

To add, because you willprobably misunderstand. (Given your recent record) When I say I am no closet socialist, I mean I am open about being a socialist

What recent record would that be then ? Once again you come out with a rash statement but you don't qualify it.

You wouldn't be considered for their job, as being an itinerant would not be part of the job description.

Well, they should at least have to perform at xmas pantomime, they have the costumes.   

And NO, again, I am NOT a CLOSET lefty. Just a lefty, a socialist, I like to see fairness, which may make me unrealistic to some. 

 

Yes inequality is a Bad Thing, or is it just inequality of opportunity that is bad? 

The thing that bothers me about your condemnation of the participants of the Royal Wedding is that there are victims of inequality at both ends of the scale. Do you blame the victims at the bottom end too?

I think blaming the system would be morally defensible, not the products of it.

Phew. Finally figured out why I found your OP somewhat distasteful.

If I could make sense of what you said, I might try to answer. (And I thought I talked  shyte.)

:)

I put a smiley, for the mods, just to show it's meant with humour.

I  thought the Royle family were quite poor.

They were, I think freeloaders though. Jim Royle just slobbed in his chair watching telly all the time, wearing RLWP's old striped T shirt. :)

Two points arise:

1) Everything I wrote still makes perfect sense to me and I've only had one bottle of Thatchers Vintage 7.4%.

2) Back in the summer DMR and I elected you a fully paid up member of the Talking Shyte Club we started, after three bottles of Thatchers Vintage 7.4% each. Did we forget to tell you?

3) A smiley back :)

I reckon they should be made to serve in the armed forces, that would toughen the so-and-so's up.
