Chance would be a fine thing.

I'm a republican arsehole. I think that sounds quite nice. Sounds better than a scrounger off the state in my arseholey opinion.

Hope she stops vomiting soon. Not least so that we don't have to foot the hospital bill.

i think it's great that there's going to be a new heir to the throne

Pleased to hear of the pregnancy, I wish them well but I don't want to hear anything more about it until the birth, thank you.

Maybe even better till after the birth, don't want to hear all the details.

Anyway, I wish them well, hope everything will go well. So much can still happen.

Bitter? I just think we are all equal. And we should all have equal opportunity. Does that make me bitter or just nice?

a lot of you have expressed a disinterest in news ofnthe royal baby and various criticisms of the monarchy, and it is difficult to argue against any of them. republicans are right.

the royal family makes no sense. it is anachronistic, undemocratic and I can see why such heridatory opulence based on an accident of birth is at best puzzling and at worst offensive to many. not only that, a voyeuristic interest in a family with no connection to my own is almost certainly unhealthy. it says much about the lack of meaning in my own life.

and yet I still quite like them.

the fact that it doesn't make sense to have this random bunch of toffs as our head of state sort of does make sense in our silly, lovely country. at least to me, at any rate.

they are a ceremonial head of state and are apolitical with less of a vested interest than a president would ever have

there are equal opportunities in this country.

Yes there are. Just some are more equal than others.

And, I'm going to have to do my self assessment tax form shortly. So I *might* become bitter then.

Really? Who told you that then?

I quite like the Irish system. You have a ceremonial head of state who does all the ceremonial stuff for a few years while leaving the politics to the politicians, and then goes off and gets a plum job in the EU or somewhere like that ... a good way of raising your profile and gaining influence imho.

But the republican argument is never going to get any traction while Mrs Windsor is still on the throne. Can't fault her, regardless of what one might think of the system or some of the members of her family.

hoax call had tragic consequences:

Duchess of Cambridge hoax call nurse found dead

A nurse at London's King Edward VII hospital who took a hoax call about the Duchess of Cambridge has been found dead, the BBC understands.

Police were called at 09:35 GMT to reports of a woman found unconscious at an address in central London.

The hospital is expected to make a statement. Her family have been told.

Holy fuck, quite simply the most shocking outcome ever, poor girl.

07/12/2012 at 15:52

Very sad but is that not a massive overreaction by any stretch of the imagination? 

07/12/2012 at 16:07

Scotland Yard said the death was being treated as unexplained and enquiries were continuing.

Bizarre, but hardly a "consequence" unless there's a more up to date news source?

07/12/2012 at 16:13

you are right. i am sure it is all just a bizarre coincidence and totally unrelated.

Pranks can have consequences?

Well, OMG !

Tell EKGO, somebody.

Well who the fuck knows either way till an explanation comes out?  But no, conjecture about someone's untimely demise is much more fun.
