Subject: RE: BS: Harry and Meghan
I don't give a rat's arse about the Queen, Charlie and his paedophile-loving brother and all the other parasites, including that useless 98-year-old racist thicko. You know me. But I'll surprise you here. I have mucho sympathy for this couple and I think that Harry, though not the sharpest knife in a drawer full of very blunt knives indeed, has seen the danger that ruined his mother (who I also had no time for, but she WAS his mum for chrissake...). Taking a step back is a good move and yes he needs to "protect his family" (with all the crypto-misogyny that that term invokes...). On the money front, no, don't make 'em pay stuff back. And we have bigged them up and exposed them so much that I think we should pay for their security. But no more civil list dough. If Charlie decides to give them dough out of his vast fortune, then that's what rich guys do with their kids. I know that BigEars didn't exactly earn his fortune and that, like all squires, landlords, earls and the rest, he makes his money by doing nothing and making the peasantry do the hard graft. But that isn't unique. If he has money that this country misguidedly regards to be legally his, i.e., not taxed anywhere near enough, then he has the right to do what he likes with it.

That's as far as it goes with me. I find it ironic, and not a little amusing, that Harry's near-ruin has been brought about by precisely the same gutter press that ruined Corbyn and which dumped us in the brexit disaster. In order, I'd control the press first, insisting that papers wishing calling themselves newspapers actually reported NEWS, with the royal parasites coming a distant second.
