Warning: This post was published more than 8 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 8 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Everyone knows that Sky News like to be first with the breaking news, but (just as has happened tens of times before on their news channel) their website might be jumping the gun in its reportage of Prince Philip’s health:
One suspects that the headline “The Duke of Edinburgh, The Very Model Of A Modern Royal Consort, Dies Aged 86” might not be welcomed by the Palace right now: I’m not sure if anyone from Sky News reads this site, but if so, you might want to remove this ‘suggested link’ from this page if ever you want any form of Royal interview or exclusive ever again…
