My Bold. You obviously don't read the Times ?

They put it into the public domain.

They were in place to prevent a 'green on blue' attack from rogue Afghan Army soldiers, after the Taliban had vowed to use any means available to 'inconvenience' Harry or, maybe they were just making it up ? :rolleyes:
These 4-seater Apaches...how long have they been in service?

Exactly.

People are quick to jump down Bugsy's throat the minute he starts banging on about how much the Royal Family cost the British Taxpayer (despite him being a Mick)... so what's changed now then? Why are people suddenly upset over something that only previous annoyed socialist Irishmen with a bee in their bonnet? Despite the fact they're looking at going it alone and becoming less of a "drain"?

Can people just not see they've been suckered in by the media a little on this one?
The person who seems most upset on this thread is your good self!
 
Everyone I’ve talked to about Harry setting up house on this side of the pond really doesn’t care what he does as long as they aren’t footing the bill, which I agree with as well.
Yes, but your friends will be people who are like you, which means they will be a bunch of miserable old gits (like the rest of us on ARRSE).

Other than for charities, has there ever been a precedent for royals monetising their titles?
Edward and his production company. That went well.
Sophie and her PR company. That went well too.
Fergie and her Budgie, diets, financial schemes ..... Every one a rip-roaring success.

Bollox, as if it would be aware where it ate and shat at that age. Never mind what a pair of cnuts he has as parents!
No she was thinking about his carbon footprint. Important when he meets St. Greta.

Really?

Didn't mean to come across that way. Although I wouldn't say upset. Just more surprised. And maybe disappointed?

Hmm... Defensive, I am. Meditate, I must.
 

Awol

That's because, unlike our Megs, they weren't shrewd enough to produce their own line of pencils.

I’ll give funny for that, but....

The reality is the people l generally associate with are more concerned about getting fleeced by the government over taxes on grain dryers, fuel, home heating, jacked up hydro bills etc. Why would on top of all that would they want to foot the bill for a couple who are worth millions that want to escape the limelight?
 
Erm, would you like to think that through....?

In HM's own words:



HRH wants to step down from public duties and go his own way and "taxpayers" are upset, why?

That's almost as bonkers as these bigots who are upset about a foreigner leaving Britain...
You appear unable to differentiate between a commitment and an aspiration. Wanting to do something and actually doing something are a long way apart.
 
Today we learn that the Canadian PM has agreed to have the Canadian tax payers cover the cost of their security cover for as long as they remain in the country. With Meghan saying that they will not move to California for as long as Trump is President, if the Donald wins another term it could put a spoke in her wheel, and have the Canadians paying for a further 3 years of security. :eek:
I wonder if Trudeau is getting a backhander for the costs, or if he is fishing for a knighthood.

If trumper gets back in they will be paying for this coming year, plus 4 more years on re-election. I shall watch the news and see if there is further comment.

I don't know why she, or any of the other americans are saying they will not be in the US whilst trumper is in office. American citizens are legally obliged to complete a US tax return and pay US taxes wherever they are in the world if any local taxes they pay do not meet the US taxation level.

Correct..........for a long time l have wanted to spend a night hanging out the back of Halle Berry .............alas........
 
It just seems confusing from my own perspective how people can go from pro-Harry to anti-Harry seemingly on the whim of the press.
That's because you misunderstand the root of the general hostility.

It's not the media, it's Harry's behaviour, and particularly so towards HMQ.

True.

All I see is a decent guy with credible service, a heart of gold who's maybe wanting to do the best by the woman he loves, who didn't have a choice in which family he was born into, want to do his own thing without the world on his shoulders over every decision he makes, who use things like "cost to the taxpayer" to justify their interest. (When it suits them, obviously, unless he's being a good egg, then he's worth it because the Royals bring in more in tourism than they cost blah blah).

Because those judging him lead such perfect lives...

Anyway, if that means I've misunderstood then so be it.

At this point in time Justin isn’t exactly the most popular lad in the country and has proven time and again he seeks to be loved. If he sees Harry as a vehicle to raise his fan base back to what it was a few years back, he’d do anything including a devils three way with the Sussex’s in an igloo in Iqaluit with Sophie running the camera.....

threatening your 93 year old a Gran isn’t a good look.
