    Was he casually racist? yeah but no more so than my own grandfathers if I’m being honest with myself.
    Presumably your grandfather didn’t get 24hr rolling coverage that reframed him as a saint when he died.

    Yeah, but we're nobodies. Royalty are appointed by gods. Nobody cares when us plebs die.

    To be fair to the Royal family about being appointed by God, its no less ridiculous than anything that comes out of any religion right?

    If you can't accept the royal family is appointed by God, you also shouldn't accept any religious dogma that has at some point got a person saying they were spoken to by God, or chosen, etc.

    Which I think it probably all the main ones.

    I think so. Have they announced how many days mourning is acceptable?

    On the bright side they can continue with his embalming, it looked like he was almost done.

    Uh-oh: King Donald. Scotch/German ancestry sounds like he'd fit right in.

    When will tv become normal?

    Fed up of this. All the bbc channels last night being shut down, or showing the same thing was utterly grim.

    Yeesh. Even itv was at it. I had to watch a little bit of netflix and play a videogame briefly ffs.

    Is Royal Dolton still around, they'd make a killing bringing out a plate or a life-like porcelain figurine of Phillip doing some slitty eyes.
