How come your royal highness can crack the shits at being likened to Dancer, Santa's most beautiful reindeer, and loves to be called a dragon. And fawns all over those who call her one?

Is it just me or does UK royalty expect a level or obsequiousness in speeches the likes of which is only seen in Blackadder & Fawlty Towers? (and , ok, the Vatican).

Listening to Michael D the other night, I found the whole thing a little distracting with every other phrase being punctuated with "your gracious majesty this and that". I'm all for good manners and appreciate the need for diplomacy but all this brown-nosing is taking things a bit far.
You never see it overwhelming dialogue with other leaders of (english-speaking) states.

Grrr

I remain, trusting this post finds you, as it leaves me, in the rudest of health,

your humble servant

In my view with due regard to all the previous posts and opinions, it is my belief that we must draw a line on the past and move forward. We are bound to future generations to endeavour to stop them from making the mistakes of the past. The past has happened....it is a different country and until we attain time travel, set in stone. The UK is our biggest and most reliable trading partner and market. If we want the Irish Republic to survive, we must adapt in a continous manner, to change. We must embrace our closest neighbour and work with them.

Its great to see this happen.


Tough for both sides. Martin mcGuinness sums it up...never though I would grow to respect him for trying. I never lived in N.I and i never had anyone killed by either side so I have no idea how tough it is to move on.

My stomach turns to see these b......s being paid out of my taxes, I do
have first hand loss because of NI. It was never pleasant the b.......s
believed they were killing an orphan but he had an adopted family and
I am part of it. An inquest held at 7.00.a.m. and no one notified - the
goings on were dreadful.
Is there sorry or regret for Mrs. McConville or the Mountbattons or young
Maxwell!

Ireland is a different place to what it was pre 1998. Yes it is not easy for some but we must move forward, not forget what happened but try to ensure conflict is kept at bay.

I imagine it must be very hard to "move on" and I don't know if I could BUT I do know we have to "move on"

I think we can expand that to 'the world' is a different place ....... Corporate war is where we are at today, huge conglomerate corporations buying into countries underhandedly and controling governments while the people are fed some meaningless scraps to fight over. Money is controlling the world and borders are being swept aside as more and more Governments lose their independence due to their failure to say no and stand up for their people. A return to violence in NI .... no chance, the gravy train is in town and all the community leaders have become fat cats. All we have to do is look at the way the Conservatives have decimated the Labour vote in the UK to see that theres no fire in the belly of the working class .... the people have basically been bought, the fight taken out of them and its no different here.

Nobody wants to ask why suicides and murders have gone through the roof since 1998 or why drugs have left the back street and turned up at the top tables all over the country. Its all rationalised and normalised as if we are superior to what went before .... but in reality, we are killing ourselves through personal greed. The truth is, we have lost the ability to say no .... to call a spade a spade and to see beyond the screen that we look at and to work together. Like it or not, we are basically part of the UK, we read their papers, watch their TV, shop in their shops and thats before we get to how we follow every trend that pops up there..... we have moved on and there's no going back. The UK is not our foe these days, it turns our that we are our own worst enemy.

Agreed NM - but I think it would also be helpful if many of those directly involved also took that advise - and moved on.
