Sports personality of the year

with 9 comments

First of all. I am not a Royal hater. I don’t believe that we should abolish the Royal family. Yes there are some dubious, in-bred, Nazi sypmathising, syphilitic elements – Prince Philip – but all-in-all, they are net contributors to this county – in other words American and Japanese tourists are obsessed with them. Anyway, sat down to watch TV tonight, and saw that Zara Phillips has won sports personality of the year 2006. What a joke. i really couldn’t believe it.
Lets break it down:-

  1. Sports. Does riding a horse really constitute a sport. Is horse riding just a rich man’s pastime?
  2. Personality. She has no personality. She is posh though – does that now mean you have personality. I have hardly seen her on TV, read about her in the paper etc – granted i do not subscribe to “Horse & Hound”.

So how did she win????

My vote would have gone for Monty or Calazaghe, or even the girl who is the best female cyclist in the world.

So, it seems that if you have rich parents, a lot of free time, a stable and some big horses, with lots of servants, then you have hit upon the magic formula of winning the Sports Personality of the year!!

Well done Prince Charles

with 12 comments

Prince Charles has gotten the death sentence commuted on Mirza Tahir Hussain who was banged up in Pakistan 18 years ago for shooting a taxi driver in a struggle. He maintains the taxi driver tried to sexually assault him, pulled a gun and it went off as Hussain tried to fight him off. He immediately turned himself in but got banged up under Sharia Law.

The death sentence has been lifted but the dead mans family still want him dead. The taxi drivers mum says she will set herself on fire if he is released so he still has a long way to go.

The question is, would an elected head of state have had the same pull as a member of the Royal family and future King of England did. We may not give a toss about the Royal family but the rest of the world still regard them very highly.
For this reason alone I would vote against any Republican movement that formed in this country.
