Minor royal given due deference and new heels

On an official engagement to open the first phase of Timpson’s (a chain of shoe repairers) refurbished training centre in Greater Manchester, Sophie, the Countess of Wessex remarked on the sorry state of her Laura B high heels. Stopping onlyto touch their forelocks (LOCKS!) the cobblers did not tarry to fix them on the spot. According to the Times the Countess was even provided with a carrier bag to stand on while a cheery proletarian repaired the heel on each shoe.

Ah it’s good to see that even in these days of chavs and ASBOs that people know their place and don’t hesitate to ensure the comfort of their betters.... I don’t think anything else newsworthy happened today.....

The royals aren't so bad at least they're just idiots rather unbearable wankers like our politicians.

Not being from the U.K., I can't
really judge the royals, but I
do remember a famous line, "Let
them eat cake!" I do not suffer
snobs very well...I don't care
what country they hail from!
p.s. I love the term "wanker"
It says so very much with such few

We could do a lot wiorse than the Queen for a head of state. I'm not a fan of snobbery either Grace.

Wanker is a great word!
