Prince will be frowning in his grave


One of the problems with a monarchy is it encourages people to abandon all rational thinking.

Within a couple of hours of the announceme­nt that Prince Philip had left us, there were tributes saying: “He was simply the greatest British person who ever lived. He won the Crimean War all on his own, he invented electricit­y, he discovered Denmark, he was the first person to make a Cadbury Creme Egg and he saved flamingos from extinction.”

I expect if he could hear any of it, he’d think:

“What a pile of cobblers.”
