I see that William and Kate have announced their intention to marry next year. Let's hope that he is more commited to making it work than his father was. The way Charles conducted himself was a disgrace.

Quite interesting that West Berks has now produced a Prime Minister and a future Queen in the space of a year.

Of course we will be getting another Public holiday to go with the Queens Diamond Jubilee Public Holiday on Tuesday the 5th June. At this rate we may catch up with France (NOT!)

I think to condemn people without all the facts is risking coming to a wrong conclusion.

True, but who says they haven't got all the facts?

Always get William and Harry confused.

Which is the one that's Charlies and which is the one that's Hewitts? ( the one with his father's red hair)

Good - after all, this is what these forums are about; challenging and learning.

Princess Diana was no snow white, and if she was once upon a time, then she had drifted.

Got nothing against the royals or the wedding, but am sick of it already and we have a least another six months to go.

This is the point I mean. How are we to really know what went on? 'Héll hath no fury', and all that.

The landlord of the Bladebone will do well for a few months anyway!
It was packed out tonight as soon as the locals realised it was on South Today!

Well, we can only go by what is reported, but that goes for everything. If you are saying we should only comment on hard provable facts then we wouldn’t comment on anything and all forums and newspapers would close down... then we’d all be bored and probably join a fascist party planning to dominate the world. Do you really want that Iommi? Well, do you? The other alterative is everybody writing crap and fictionalised rubbish (I suppose a bit like what we’ve already got... you can't win really, can you?). tongue.gif wink.gif

I'm not saying any of that. I'm just not going to jump to conclusions about people based on a media that makes money out of mischief and misery. Do we really know enough about the truth behind the Charles and Diana story? I doubt it.

Do we actually care?

Assumptions are probably a lot better than the truth anyway.

If you didn’t jump to conclusions on this forum then there isn’t much point in being on here... apart from that you will probably end up being the odd one out.... and does odd suit you? OK, carry on (I never liked being part of a clique either). laugh.gif

I've never thought that. Assumptions should only be made for the sake of expedience, I think.

Jumping to conclusions about people is often ugly, in my view.
