P&O Cruisers - What are things like where YOU are?

I like history, even royal history and this thing about titles is quite interesting. People compare the Archie situation with Princess Anne’s children, but the best comparison should surely be Prince Edward and his children. I believe that they’re not prince/princess, and they’re grandchildren to the Sovereign (male line) not great-grandchildren. Edwards and Sophie haven’t made a big fuss have they. 
 

Had to laugh when my Mother reported on the phone that my Father is quite annoyed that these two are taking up so much room in his daily newspaper and on the news. Here’s a man who probably wouldn’t look twice if the Queen passed him on the street. Nothing against her, just disinterested. 
 
I’m sure that there have been failings on both ‘sides’, but the hapless couple appear almost unhinged.

Nice colour Bob, I looked one of those before settling for a Citroen C3 Aircross.

Just read that Piers Morgan was told by his bosses to apologise to Meghan and that's why he stormed off set on Tuesday morning and subsequently resigned.

Very nice and room for all your luggage for the journey to Southampton (if you ever have the need to go there again). I agree, it is a gorgeous colour, I looked at a VW in the same colour a couple of years ago but the rest of the car didn’t really suit our needs.

In his own daft, hackneyed terms - snowflake! 

 

Never watched the ITV breakfast programme, but I have seen the clips of what happened - pathetic.  As is trying to make it look as if you've resigned, when the reality is probably very different.

 

ITV realises that his sort of poisonous, divisive output is actually damaging the ITV brand as well as society, and Morgan will find another stone to crawl under as quick as a flash.  Even the rumoured successor station, Andrew Neil's GB News, is saying if he signs up he'll have to change his toxic act.

Hoping to go in February, Iona to the Canaries, if that's a no no, it will be curtains for P&O IMO.

I'm not a Piers Morgan fan at all, but while reading your post I had a thought. If he was told to apologise to Meghan for speaking his mind about that interview, then shouldn't Meghan apologise to the Royal Family as well. After all, they both said what they thought was the truth and it was aired on TV.   Don't our Royals deserve a little consideration and respect too? Especially our lovely Queen who is having a worse time than M&H at the moment. 

Just ruminating🤔

I agree the Queen is lovely.

Piers has a massive ego but he is not afraid to ask the hard questions to whoever he is interviewing.

No problem at all with that, Graham. It's his job. But gratuitous offensiveness just for ratings, his own ego and to create strife is taking things too far. I imagine he just pushed ITV beyond its limits. 40,000+ complaints is going some, and maybe they feared consequences from the regulators.

The Telegraph reported Meghan officially complained to ITV and ITV told Piers to apologise.

It was unwise of him to say what he did.

Snap, although mine is a little older.

Pleased with mine overall. A couple of little niggles that you'll probably discover in due course,  but a good choice.

Diversity got over 24,000 complaints, and no action was taken. Who decides what is 'too far'?

Unfortunately, I find him rude and objectionable and stopped watching GMB some time ago because of him.

The remote control in our house. DW controls that. The sky woman was as bad.

To a certain extent I agree,  but at least he did try and get politicians to answer his questions, rather than discombobulate.

With words like that in your vocabulary, I think you should apply for the vacancy.🤣

How big is the boot on the Aroma wowzz, I wonder if it would take a folded wheelchair, without needing the back seat moving forward.

How is everyone this morning?  I hope that you have all survived the winds and rain overnight.  I have just been to take the recycling out and check for damage.  The only damage is a water feature in the side garden has blown over so David has a job when he gets up, there are no fences damaged or trees down so we seen to have got off lightly this time.
