AC­CORD­ING to Ajex chair­man Harold New­man, the Duke of Ed­in­burgh de­scribed the Jewish ex-ser­vice­men at­tend­ing last year’s war-re­mem­brance ser­vice as mainly “taxi driv­ers and cloth­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers”. Mr New­man re­minded the Prince of his re­mark at this year’s ser­vice, at West­min­ster Abbey last Sun­day. “No,” in­sisted the Prince. “I said they were mainly taxi driv­ers and tai­lors.” Says New­man: “I replied that I had cor­rected this this year by bring with me ac­coun­tants, so­lic­i­tors and den­tists. We both had a good laugh.” Isn’t it nice that some­one finds the Prince funny?
