FrancoFile: Hey, at least you got your flag right. If/when the Aussies and Kiwis drop the monarchy, are they going to redesign their flags to eliminate the mini-UK flag embedded in it?
kevinatilusa: #1 story on BBC home page at the moment: China Earthquake.Below it's the Dubai rape case, then below that's the Royal baby.#1 story on CNN home page at the moment: "Royal Baby on the Way". The Earthquake's a single sentence link stuck on the left below "5 things to start your new day".
feckingmorons: Yeah, another Britisher on the dole.At least it isn't a muzzie.

bobbette: I'd like to take this moment to observe how utterly bizarre it is that much of the anglosphere has fetishized every detail of the marriage and procreation of a couple of boring upper class English people whose major selling points are that they have a cute dog and the lady is reasonably attractive and buys nice hats.It is preposterous that this infant will be Canada's head of state in about 60 years, and even more ridiculous that this event heralds the birth of a future head of a state church. Can we just consider why, exactly, anyone thinks a theocratic monarchy should be the basis of any political system? And is there anything, other than sheer lack of political will to address anything constitutional, that justifies Canada of all places continuing to support this remnant of colonialism? It's hard to find another country that combines Canada's belligerent egalitarianism, disdain of anything elitist or stuck-up, navel-gazing obsession with national identity and citizenship, widespread atheism/apatheism, and multi-ethnic origins that strongly compete with any former sense of British cultural descent. (You sort of have Australia, but Australia doesn't even have a third of the population speaking French.) All these things together make Canada a really odd place to continue to promote a foreign monarchy.The Yanks and the French figured this one out in the 1700s. Time to join the 18th century, Canada!
4tehsnowflakes: quatchi: I think in the wake of the post Diana debacle the UK press and paparazzi were pretty hands off on Harry and WilliamYes, they showed great restraint when Harry got in a bit of a spot over that drunken, naked billiards party in Vegas. The UK tabloids kept a stiff upper lip and refused to report on the story./gay celeb snarker at dlisted calls him Prince Hot Ginge, NTTAWWT

Bathia_Mapes: And now I've got the giggles because I just realized I called Charles "Princess Charles". :-D
Bathia_Mapes: They bring in a lot of tourist money to the country.
gibbo72: Lachwen: Uglybarnacle: who the fark cares?Well, the entire United Kingdom, for a start...uhm no we don't but the BBC certainly does, Breakfast News keeps banging on about it but theres fark all else worth watching at the moment
PsychoLaurie: I kind of doubt they will name the baby Diana, unless it's a middle name. Do all British kids come with four names like Chalres Philip Arthur George??
angrymacface: Perhaps they'll be able to teach the baby what a plumber is./obscure
loveblondieo: iheartscotch: I'm sure you ment to say something that rhymes with aiden...The world would implode on pure doucheosity if we ever had a King Caiden or Braiden.
AverageAmericanGuy: Oldiron_79: Jeebus I thought we fought 2 wars with those wankers to not have to give a shiat about thier royalty.There's something ingrained deep down in our American psyche that makes us long for a king to rule over us.It's why Bush was elected twice.
loveblondieo: I don't necessarily care for stuff like this, but I find myself a wee bit excited. Maybe if it's a girl, they could name her Diana or Diane.
