Re: Princess Kate (aka the Duchess of Cambridge) is Pregnant!

I do feel bad for them. I mean, a reprimand (suspension w/o pay or something like that) would have been just fine, but with the addition of the nurse's suicide, there was no way they were going to come out of this in one piece, either emotionally or career-wise. They played a stupid prank, and it backfired horribly on them.

No, it REALLY isn't a good point, at all. It's about as far away from a good point as one can get. It's a completely dickish point in fact.

I don't give a shit that he's got a hard-on for the Royals and thinks they're arrogant (no problem there, at least for some of them) or that no one can speak out against them (which is an odd thing to say as he's freely speaking out against them... which he's done for decades without consequence), but where the fuck does he get off saying Middleton is partially to blame for this nurse's death because "she was in the hospital as far as he can see for absolutely no reason"? I wasn't aware he was Dr. Morrissey OB/GYN now and knows when a woman who is pregnant for the first time should or shouldn't feel compelled to go to the doctor.

And was she supposed to predict that her hospital stay would result in an Australian radio DJ prank which would contribute to an emotionally troubled nurse's suicide? No wonder he's so vehemently anti-monarchist; apparently they're psychic and have been withholding vital information about the future from the British public all this time. I guess Middleton automatically acquired her powers through marriage.

What an asshole. He's got no business calling anyone arrogant.

I sometimes wonder how many steps away from going full on David Icke Morrissey is?

Oh Morrissey. You make being a fan so fucking hard sometimes. Tip: Morrissey rarely, if ever, makes "a good point". He's an eccentric idiot who happens to be a brilliant songwriter, despite being giant twat.

Anyway. On the earlier subject:

The chief executive of Samaritans, Catherine Johnstone, says: "Suicide is complex.

"Although a catalyst may appear to be obvious, suicide is seldom the result of a single factor or event and is likely to have several inter-related causes.

"Sometimes people get to a point where they feel they can't cope, where it all gets too much to handle.

"It's worse if people feel they are alone and they can't talk to anyone about what's weighing on them."

Which is a much better way of saying what I was trying to say earlier in the thread.

Re: Princess Kate (aka the Duchess of Cambridge) is Pregnant!

What he says here I have no doubt is true

"And I'm sure the Palace and Clarence House put maximum pressure on this poor receptionist and nurse, and of course that's kept away from the press. I'm sure the British press hounded this poor woman to her death, that's kept away. And by this time next week she'll be forgotten. And that's how the British royals work."


With people like Max Clifford for example around, and all the stuff about what he covers up so blatently available, I find it laughable people still seem to just believe everything they read in these shit rags.

It's all a giant conspiracy!!

Pretty soon people will be suggesting it wasn't suicide after all, and that Prince Phillip ordered the hit.

It's all energy synthesis one way or the other why quibble over the source or method, the only solution is to throw one self into a black hole and be done with it.

It's always Prince Philip isn't it? He's going to have you hit now for working it out, and me for working out that he got a hit on you.

And yet curiously Morrissey, the beacon of truth justice and the American way, gets to live...you'd think he'd be first on the list given all the secret information (not to mention medical knowledge) he's privy too.

Maybe he knows too much to kill?

That's the biggest secret of them all. Morrissey actually runs it all, and uses the others to distract us from his master plan.

He's like Fox Mulder. If you kill him, you risk making a martyr out of him. Except for all those times they tried to kill him.
