Saw this on Facebook. I haven't checked how much of it is true.

Remind me again how it’s another scrounging on tax payers money?!

HIS Father......
•Volunteered for 2 tours of Afghanistan.
•Set up Invictus games helping wounded service personal.
° Numerous unpaid charity volunteer appointments all over the world.
•Family brings in 400 million a year in private revenue that under the “ sovereign act 2011” the government keeps £360 million of.
•Family brings in £1.8 billion per year in tourism.
•Country better off by £2.1 billion a year.
Remind me how the wedding was a waste of tax payers money too?
° The wedding was paid for by the Royal heritage and private funding not the tax payer and that includes her dress!
° The tax payer will pay for the public security not private security. The same way the tax payer pays for public security at football matches etc.

Don't be a zombie and believe everything you see and read in the papers, do a little research before sharing propaganda. Like it or not, the Royal family is a British tradition and icon.
Let’s not forget that most of the people complaining about spending tax payers money are the ones who sit on there arse and sign for it !!

It is two o'clock in the morning and Paul and his wife are asleep when suddenly the phone rings.

Paul picks up the phone and says, "Hello? ............................. How the heck do I know? Who the bloody hell do you think I am - the weather man?" promptly slamming the phone down.

His wife rolls over and asks, "Who was that?"

Paul replies, "I don't know, it was some guy who wanted to know if the coast was clear."

I don't have much interest on the Royals to be honest, although did watch briefly as the new parents brought out baby to show everyone.
I'm surprised Meghan walked out as she still has some err baby 'wobble' ( meeeooww) and generally when we get to see them after babies are born they are back to looking like stick insects.

I have treated myself to one so I can view my 'babies' or Hedgehogs who frequent my garden.
Have to admit I am struggling with the settings a bit as don't really know anything about PIR's etc.
I prefer the video setting to photo setting.

Still I have seen my babies - at least two which are fat ones. One I have called 'Ferk' no prizes for guessing why  How they get into their feeding house together I'm not sure!!

Also the two cats are seen ( not ours and they visit during the day ) and one seems to have spotted the infra red light coming on on the camera  ;D

The one thing I didn't expect was the Fox well maybe more than one as I have captured it on different nights and one seems larger than the other  :-?

I will continue with experimenting with the settings and maybe one day will get a short clip on here!!

It seems Danny's comment was made innocently in fun but, his employers saw something more sinister. The BBC.
Racism exists purely & simply because of skin colour & religion amongst other things.
Underneath our skins - we are all the same.
I am white, and have never been racially abused, nor have I abused anyone of a different skin colour.
We are supposed to be the intelligent species after all - not yet substantiated I would argue!

Well I don't know about anyone else but the words mountain and molehill spring to mind.

If I hadn't seen and heard about the furore over this picture I {like many} I would have seen it for the first time and saw it for what it was, or what it was supposed to be, just a laugh. I wouldn't have seen a blatant jibe at the royal baby, it was, and is an amusing {old} photo that I think would have surfaced sooner or later, it's just unfortunate for Danny that he put it out there first and is being pilloried for it. Apparently in this day and age being careful is not enough there are people out there that take something as trivial as this and blow it out of all proportion, and to me that's what's happened here.
It's the kind of photo you would have probably seen on the next Have I got news for you, or in Private eye.  Anyone with an agenda will read whatever they want to read to suit their ends.

Take for example the N word. Can't use it, DAREN'T use it, against certain people, yet you look on places like you tube, usually about  arguments on the New York subway and those very same people call each other that ALL THE TIME!!!! so it's all right for them to use it but not anyone else.

I'm not taking any chances now, I've just been to the shop were, without thinking, I bought some black Gorilla tape, I'm binning it before I'm accused of being a racist.
