Tonight I am listening to a programme on Radio 4 about the Royal Family (hurrah!) It is now looking at Diana, Princess of Wales. She was 36 when she checked out (same as me now!), the poor mare; I stood amongst many on The Mall for her funeral a few days later and it was a fine event. Inevitably, Radio 4 in its slightly cheap, new labour way is loving up on Earl Spencer's speech at the time that was taken as a real rocket against The Firm. Many stood and cheered it that day, but I absolutely did not because that felt cheap! Fucking lefties in the BBC...all so right on and that 'smash the state bollocks'. Wankers!

Here endeth the rant!

I miss her. Bill Bryson did a lovely section on her in his book. Notes from a Small Island".

Hmmm, a small rant has escaped it would seem!
