He'll be right as rain the moment Cliff Richard leaves the stage. I'm not a Royal lover but that shite endurance test yesterday followed by today's "festivities" and with tomorrow to come is a lot to expect of any 90 odd year old. Let alone one that spent Christmas in hospital.
Very sorry to hear your news, V-M. Condolences, of course.
As to PTG, the OH's immediate reaction was that he was throwing a sickie to escape the gopping 'concert' - typical Admin reaction
However, best wishes to the old sailor. The World would be a dull place without him.
I assume this puts paid to the Ks/CBEs for the twonks who exposed HM and her OH for 3 hours of cold, damp, mind-numbing boredom yesterday? Please?
