    I confess I'm with Yuwipi Woman on this...he's not too shabby...I am also a big fan of our ginger brethren.

    Quite. It always amuses me how everyone swooned over the beautiful Diana-boy that he was but now he's fallen prey to the Windsor male pattern baldness...not so much.

    They would be a completely unexceptional couple if they were ordinary non-rich people you just met down the pub or whatever - he's not bad looking, tallish and presumably fairly fit given his former job - it wouldn't be surprising in the slightest to see him with a beautiful woman.

    A day off work? :eek: Think what that does to the economy and tax receipts. :eek: Nope, no day off work.

    Amazing how your views change, when you are dependent on tax receipts for your pension to be paid. :D Prior to the 4th of October, I'd have been wanting a day off too. :D

    You would, wouldn't you? I really hope she realises what is in store.

    Last time when there was a bank holiday, my client was closed so since i couldn't work, I didn't get paid. This time I would get paid so...

    Wouldn't want her to find out the same way as Diana did.

    No additional Bank Holiday? What a con etc. etc. :hmm:

    Oh well, at least we'll be at the Bearded Theory Festival so we can almost entirely avoid all this 'Big Royal Day' nonsense :)

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    Bit too old to get under the car, then make a quick getaway, nowadays!

    Probably rope in that dopey cunt Edward to do it for him. :)

    Wikipedia says it'll be in May next year, but doesn't give a date. If you're reading this, Mr Hewitt, please do it on the 26th, as I have another wedding that day. Synchronising them will increase my chances of avoiding the mass fawning.

    I've already heard a public member call her the 'People's Meghan' on the radio.

    If Brenda and/or Phil can cark it at the same time, even better, as that'll help concentrate all the coverage.

    Last Friday (1st December) :

    Today (Tuesday 5th December) :

    hash tag ?? Was there a solid source for that date, or was it speculative? :confused:

    Must admit I didn't look for a source myself :oops:

    Fucks me off every time this debate about 'extra bank holidays' comes about, completely ignoring huge swaths of UK workers who have to work most of them anyway, without extra pay. :mad:


    FUCK

    Hang on, even as a lucky Civil Servant, I still wear my Union hat and think that +EVERY+ worker everywhere should be paid extra for Bank Holidays (or at the very least have TOIL for them).

    Lets not divide and let others rule here ... :hmm:

    Rutita1 Scum with no integrity, apparently.

    William, you thinking that and hoping it to become true is all that is though.

    Many, many workers don't have a sniff at BH days off or extra time etc.

    Pointing that out isn't dividing anyone it's speaking truth... Don't get defensive, get even, how can we achieve those workers rights for all? That should be the aim, not conceding so defensively and asking for the facts not to be discussed openly.

    I absolutely do know all that, and generally agree.
    What else can I do though?
    We all know who the real enemies are with all this though surely?

    No time for more today ...

    The time and a half or double time for working Bank Holidays and even Weekends seems to have died a death in the last 20 years and thats honestly depressing considering how much more society seems to be forcing people to work those days.

    I think, to both celebrate the union and mourn passing of two national treasures, we should get a lot more than one day.
