"Ya Royal Highness, why don't you stick your nose up a dead bear's bum!"

Well, I'm Australian and I've never said that in my life. Nor have I ever heard any other Australian say it.

We don't even have bears!!

While I have no particular fondness or not for your (and my) royal family, I really don't see any great harm in Chaz. having some concerns for his and your country and the world. Why don't you just treat this as any other citizen (nutter) writing letters to his MP and/or newspapers?

I think you're getting your long johns in a knot for no good reason. Just go about your business and have a cuppa tea and a scone. Lie down if it'll help.


Like Andra I've never heard said saying - however

"Stick it where the sun don't shine" I could live with.

Back in the late '50s I read a book about the Korean war and the writer quoted the expression from an Australian soldier. It impressed me so much I have never forgotten it. Mind you, later on I actually met some Australian soldiers and listening to their spoken English I realised that the writer had elided one word which, even in a sentence as short as that, would have appeared at least five times!

Incidentally, I have just enjoyed the Aussie Minister of Agriculture on Sky TV sounding off on Johnnie Depp and his 'poor likkle doggie-woggies' whom he 'smuggled into Australia avoiding quarantine regulations. According to the Minister, the 'Doggie-Woggies' should either be put down or told to "bugger off back to California"! Her Majesty would not be amused - although 'Phil' would probably fall about!

I visited some in-laws in Brisbane many years ago. I got bitten by a dog. The RAAF doctor said don't worry about rabies, we don't have it because, unlike you silly Brits (he was a Scot), we don't allow the import of live animals. He did have great pleasure in giving me an anti-Tet jab, although he remarked that it was too late anyway!

David. I do not think Charlie was interfering in government but only making suggestions. I am sure the Queen has had a quiet word with a few PM's and rightly so in view of her long experience in life.
So ifs aff tae the Tower fur you and aff wie yer heid.

A bit of info for visitors to London.

Judging by that fish's dental work, I only have a couple of lures that will catch him.

The Queen is permitted by custom to offer words of encouragement or warning to prime ministers but she doesn't pester them with a thousand and one written notes. And what's happened to you, Jimmy, have you joined the Beefeaters?

Don't worry, 'Whiters', we have plenty of left-over 'Kippers' we can send you, they should help as bait!

David the man is a taxpayer and is fully entitled to pester politicians discretely.
Charlie raised the matter of the appalling architecture and concrete jungles. More power to his arm and he will make a fine King although it will be a sad day when old Queenie has to go.

Andra, AussieD,
I have been told you have drop bears.

No he's not entitled to pester politicians, Jimmy. He lives in a highly privileged position and one of, perhaps the most important, of the rules is that does not interfere with government.

Bloody hell, I thought you were a socialist!

David I am a middle of the road British bloke and my ancestors were all royalists. As long as this country looks after the eldery and lame ( not the lazy ) then that is fine by me.
My mrs did comment about Brand. She said is Milliband doing a Kinnock and when the stone turned up she said he is finished and she was right. What a knobend his circumcision must have gone wrong.
Aff tae the Midlands tomorrow to meet up with all the oldies.

I did a tumble into the letters and quite honestly I don't see what the fuss is all about. I understand about the constitutional monarchy thingy you lot have, but I have yet to read anything that would violate his position even if he were king. But that is just my humble opinion.
Disclaimer: I have always been rather fond of dear chuckles and what I see as his idiosyncrasies. Poor hapless bloke-can't win for losing.
Now I am sure someone is going to cast aspersions in my direction.
