John Terry Is More Obnoxious Than El-Hadji Diouf

IN their wisdom, Titan have invited us to promote their gambling service with their infographic “5 Premier League players who wouldn’t do well in the Celebrity Big Brother Betting”.  The writer of the article has, of course, got it utterly wrong. They’ve plumped for the five people you’d most like to see in the TV house, although we’d replace the charmless Diouf with John Terry.

Prince William Hunts Squirrell At Cambridge Univeristy



PRINCE William, needed only an A, B and C in his A-levels to get into Cambridge University Normally the University requires an A* and two As. But the Prince is not normal.

All the pretence that he is – the middle-class accent, calling people “guys” and not “serfs” and showing us pictures of his baby (so very Facebook) are just sops to the saps. The boy’s a toff. 

Mary Beard, Cambridge University’s Professor of Classics, says Wills should use the jaunt to mix with the riff-raff, telling the Daily Mail: “I very much hope that he will take the opportunity to meet some of our more ‘ordinary’ students, struggling with making ends meet, worried about careers, future and debt.”

Before The War: Europe’s Royal Family In 1913

WHAT did the Royal Family look like 100 years ago? 1913 was the year before the war to end wars. Were those halcyon days? No.

Women wanted a better deal. In June 1913 Emily Wilding Davison dashed in front of the king’s horse at the Epsom Derby in the name of women’s suffrage. Four days later she died. One month later, 50,000 women massed in Hyde Park, London organised by the National Union of Women’s Suffrage Societies. They would shot  Herbert Asquith, the Liberal Prime Minister, how many women wanted the right to vote.

Sparks were flying in Europe.Lenin and Trotsky were talking of revolution as they toured Europe. At once point, Hitler, Trotsky, Tito, Freud and Stalin all lived in one corner of Vienna.

Empires were on the wane. Nations were the future. Australia and India wanted to move away from Britain. There was turmoil in Ireland. Workers united to push back the drowning tide of grinding poverty in a strike that would become the Dublin Lockout.

Prince George To Find Out Just How Peculiar Human Beings Are

HE might be only 3 months old, but shitting hell, Prince George is on a steep learning curve to find out how bizarre the human race is.

Today, third in line to a chair, he found himself being dipped in some water while someone said something about Jesus. Not just any water though. This water came all the way from the River Jordan, presumably purified to the point of Evian.

He was dragged to a huge building where there’s also a load of rotting corpses by a man who sometimes wears bejeweled dressing gowns, massive pointy hats and asks for advice from talking clouds.

Prince George Christening: The Brotherhood And The Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace

IN readiness for the Christening of Prince George of Cambridge, here’s a general view of the interior of the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace in central London, where he’ll be named in God’s eyes. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby will be welcomed into the Christian faith surrounded by his immediate family and the close friends of his parents.
