And Damned Right He Is Too!

The trash tabloid organ of the labour Party is trying to take the piss out of Prince Philip by publishing what they call some of his 'ill-advised comments.'   Here they are and you can judge how ill or otherwise advised they were.

In the aftermath of the Dunblane school massacre in 1996, where 18 people were killed, Prince Phillip questioned the need for a firearms ban: "If a cricketer, for instance, suddenly decided to go into a school and batter a lot of people to death with a cricket bat, which he could do very easily, I mean, are you going to ban cricket bats?"

Of course, he's quite right.

"You look like you're ready for bed!" he once cringe-inducingly commented to the President of Nigeria, who was dressed in traditional robes.

One of the Duke of Edinburgh's early clangers: "British women can't cook," 1966.

"Do you still throw spears at each other?" he tactfully asked a group of Aboriginal performers in Australia in 2002.

In fact, in this modern day and age, they still do.  It's  part of primitive tribal 'justice' in the outback.

"It is very difficult to see how it is possible to become immensely valuable by singing what I think are the most hideous songs," Prince Phillip said about Tom Jones, of all people, in 1969. Later, on how difficult it is to get rich in Britain: "What about Tom Jones? He's made a million and he's a bloody awful singer."

Here, I think he went a bit far.

In 1995 he asked a Scottish driving instructor in Oban: "How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to pass the test?"

Right on!!!!!

On a tour of a Scottish factory in 2002 he slammed a shoddy fuse box by saying it "looked as though it was put in by an Indian."

Any thoughts on wind turbines? "Absolutely useless" and "an absolute disgrace" apparently.

How right he was.

His recent forceful suggestion to a fussing Photographer to "just take the Fucking photo" at a Battle of Britain event was classic.
