I went to look at his family tree on Wikipedia, and the sense of entitlement from being 100% blue-blooded going back four centuries makes Javanka look like shiat-stained peasants.

At least Javanka aren't inbred sixty ways from Sunday.

I really hope the lawyer that writes the "donation" letters that the Saudis send to memorialize their gift to whatever foundation they are running kickbacks thru has fun with it like having carrier pigeons falcons deliver them or some shiat

Prosecutor Yves Bertossa's ongoing inquiry centres on a $100m (£80m) gift to Juan Carlos from the king of Saudi Arabia in 2008, and whether it was in connection with the awarding of a €6.7bn contract for a Spanish consortium to build a high-speed railway from Medina to Mecca three years later "

I don't get this. The Saudis bribed the Spanish king so that a Spanish company could get a huge contract in Saudi Arabia? Aren't they doing this wrong? Does the Saudi king not know how bribes work?

"Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez recently admitted that the accusations levelled against Juan Carlos were "disturbing", and that he was in favour of reforming the constitutional concept of absolute immunity for Spain's head of state."

Christ. Did the king write the constitution himself?

More like the Spanish...question-askers are either new at this or trying to drum up negative public reaction.

At the age of fifteen Doug and Dinsdale started attending the Ernest Pythagoras Primary School in Clerkenwell. When the Piranhas left school they were called up but were found by an Army Board to be too unstable even for National Service. Denied the opportunity to use their talents in the service of their country, they began to operate what they called 'The Operation'... They would select a victim and then threaten to beat him up if he paid the so-called protection money. Four months later they started another operation which the called 'The Other Operation'. In this racket they selected another victim and threatened not to beat him up if he didn't pay them. One month later they hit upon 'The Other Other Operation'. In this the victim was threatened that if he didn't pay them, they would beat him up. This for the Piranha brothers was the turning point.

Yeah well the sun came up this morning, now it's hot outside. I wonder whether there's a connection?

The Spanish company might have, on orders from the King, low-balled all the other bidding contractors for the job.

Was going to say the King of Spain is actually a commoner while the true King of Spain works at the Pizza Pizza and vacuums the turf at Skydome.

Wow, you really have to search far and wide to find anyone in a governmental leadership position that isn't an amoral, kiddie fiddling corrupt piece of shiat.  That includes the US.

Technically not an ancestor/descendant relationship, since old Chuck the Mad never produced an heirs, but definitely related at least 84 bloodlines.

Pretty much. When Generalissimo Franco died the King took over and set up a democracy.
