MGM·Lion Queen's 90th (114* d) RE: Queen's 90th 13 Jun 16

"That's not envy - it's justifiable resentment."
Indeed a very tenable pov, Jim; but we happen to perceive the same phenomenon a bit differently. A bit like those old 'irregular verbs' they used to ask for in New Statesman competitions & so on -- I think I won one for such a verb once: things like

'I am firm. You are obstinate. He is a pig-headed idiot.'

So in our present instance

'I justifiably resent unearned privilege. You think you have as good a right to respect. He is green with envy.'

Wish I actually had this 'silver spoon' you keep saddling me with btw!
