  • The Royal Wedding

    Sound from our TV woke me up this AM as my wife was watching Lord and Lady Douchebag get married. I wanted to NOT watch it ... too late.

    One cannot unsee that which has been seen.

    Come on Emale, surely you are a free enough thinking man to simply NOT watch it? :)

    As for me, I have no issues with it, good for them both, best of luck to them. Rule Britannia!

        What was the final cost to the taxpayers of that wedding?

              The only thing that annoys me more than the incessant royal wedding coverage is the incessant whining about not wanting to watch the royal wedding. TVs have an off button for a reason - this isn't 1984. Go into another room, put some headphones on, read a book.
              Me? I was recovering from a night out, eating a late breakfast and reading Revelation Space.

                Very little compared to other expenditure, not only that but the economic benefit from tourism / merchandise generated from the wedding will most likely be far more than the cost itself. The only other matter would be if the public holiday caused more economic damage than could be made back, but I don't think anyone is complaining about having a day off. :D

                I'm no Royalist, but I think the royal family is one of the only things left in Britain that we can be truly proud of. Events like this are the only time you will see British flags flying in the street bar football matches.
