The govt have set up a review (headed by Tracey Crouch) so fingers crossed something solid comes of it. Football hass been on a roller coaster for years and just maybe now the veneer of respectability of owners (who have no interest in football other than to make money) has been smashed, just maybe there will be some meaningful change?
Just got asked by a poster if my view of P.P. would change if I aware of his introducing gift aid.
Couple of points. Firstly, yeah, I hadn't known that and that does sound like a good thing that benefited lots of charities. On a human level that sounds like a very good thing he achieved.
But that doesn't change his role, within an institution of privilege and what it represents. I won't be dothing my cap to him. My dislike of the royals is based on what they represent, not who they are.
And I stand by my point that people should be able to criticise his conduct if they chose. Why ever not?
The small bit on TV I watched on him was borderline stomach churning, making him out to be some super human hero. People of course are welcome to believe that propoganda if they chose. Other's are welcome to challenge it.
Seems to me quite a few monarchists are srruggling with the fact that an awful lot of people recognise the coverage for a 99 year old man is utterly ridiculous.
