On and on they go...
THE SUN SAYS The Queen should remind Harry and Meghan most British people work a lot harder, for a lot less
WE welcome the Queen’s decision to show Meghan and Harry the door.
Their plan to be half in, half out of The Firm was arrogant in the extreme, and would have set a damaging precedent.
But let’s not pretend that this is a “win” over the Sussexes for the public or the Royal Family.
Prince Harry and his wife gladly accepted fame and fortune in exchange for the responsibilities of royalty.
Now, they are choosing to shun those responsibilities, keep the fame, and cash it in for an even bigger fortune overseas.
And given that — as things stand — it’ll be us mugs back home footing their whopping security bill as they swan around North America striking lucrative commercial deals and preaching about climate change, it seems they’ve got themselves a pretty plum deal.
To put an end to this whole sorry saga, the Queen should adopt an even firmer line.
She must gently remind the Duke and Duchess that though they might have found their duties “soul-crushing”, most British people work a lot harder, for a lot less.
And they rightly expect some of the richest people in the country to stand entirely on their own two feet.
Which means no handouts from the Prince of Wales. No Sussex titles to trademark. And no funding of their police guards.
If those terms of abdication are proposed and accepted, then we, along with most reasonable British people, will wish Harry and Meghan Wales every happiness in beginning their new lives.
This can be completely ignored until The Sun mention Zac Goldsmith:
A PEERAGE for any one of John Bercow, Karie Murphy or Tom Watson — let alone all three — would be a grotesque insult to the British people.
Brexit-blocking former Speaker Bercow stands accused of bullying Commons staff.
Murphy, Jeremy Corbyn’s bag-carrier, is being investigated by the Equality and Human Rights Commission for allowing anti-Semitism to fester in the Labour Party.
And Jezza’s slippery ex-deputy Watson egged on the bungled VIP paedo ring investigation that ruined innocent people’s lives — and cost the taxpayer upwards of £200million.
The Lords was meant to be a crucial chamber where the wisest in the land could check and amend legislation.
But it has mortally damaged its reputation by spending three years trying to thwart Brexit, the biggest democratic mandate in our history.
If it now adds any of this trio of scandal-drenched Corbyn nominees to its already bloated ranks, then frankly, it is done for.
Boris Johnson is said to be considering moving the House of Lords up to York.
If Bercow, Murphy or Watson are to be anywhere near it, we’d rather relocate it to outer Siberia.
