Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Those of you hoping to escape the forthcoming nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton had better stick YouTube on your list of proscribed media, because the 29 April wedding will be streamed live on The Royal Channel.
Then royalty has fleas and makes a mess on the carpet.
I am afraid that the royal family means nothing to me.
I wonder why so many people mock this special occasion, it is historic and yet the future too, something all of us should treasure.
Sometimes I get the impression some people would prefer to see two Hollywood celebs get married.
And yet, the world would be such a very different place if it were not for the British people and as such, the British monarchy
(King) Bhumibol is legally considered "inviolable", and insults, claims that he is involved in politics, and criticism of him can result in three to fifteen years in jail
Plus unlike the Oscars or a Michael Jackson concert, this is historic. Something we should all cherish because once it has gone then the only place our children, and then theirs etc will be able to see such things will be in a museum.
Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
a cat may look at a king
Um, the royal family ARE celebrities, and that's all they are.
Maybe your views are skewed living in Thailand though.
How sad that some people cherish the events of the rich, who are only rich because they've taken from your ancestors.
Take tourism to the UK. The Royal family, their palaces, gardens bring in billions of tourism receipts each year.Often repeated by the pro-royals this is in fact wrong. Check this link which gives the latest visitor figures for top tourist attractions. None of the current palaces are in the top 20, the tower of London scrapes in at no. 8, but this is mainly an historical attraction.
an historical..all is not lost for the English language, when such things exist in "Foo" :)
what I am talking about goes back centuries
