its beyond ridiculous. State enforced mourning and grieving. Why all BBC channels - what would be the justification for not restricting to one BBC channel? 

It's to remind that BBC viewers that they are plebs. 

No bread and circuses while the important people are grieving.

Oh please please please somebody do a Photoshop of Duke of Edinburgh 100th Birthday plates going cheap!

Don't need to. This company got a wee bit previous with their advertising though funnily enough they've now pulled it from their site. Not before I took a grab of the design though...

How is it 'a sign of respect' to not have the regular TV schedule run?
I'm not quite sure why, but the way you've put that made me laugh.

Scotland were playing Belarus in a qualifier and there was a big stushy about it being played on the day of Diana's funeral. McCoist and Goram refused to play. 

The game eventually got shifted to the Sunday. Not sure if it was on TV becuase I was in the ultimate hell of being a wee guy getting dragged round furniture shops with my parents during the game. 

My gran also banned me from playing outside during the funeral so when you combine that with the previous 5 weekdays of no Neighbours on TV it was a really challenging week for me.

If I am honest I was more upset by the death of Paul Ritter earlier this week. A versatile actor and his role as the Dad in Friday Night Dinner was probably the last thing(other than football) that my whole family would watch and laugh at together.
The fact he was only slightly older than myself made it even more tragic than a 99 year old from a privileged background.

Says a lot about Aberdeen's season.

Is it the case that someone better dies around the same time as every royal? Dermot Morgan died a day or so apart from Diana.

Yes I know that.

I don't really want to slink away either though, cowed by them. 

I doubt if they behave this way in wider life, but on here they feel they have a licence to, and they get a bit high on it.

 

 

Back on topic, the coverage the BBC is giving this across TV and Radio really is ludicrous.  I'd have expected this frenzy for the Queen, but for him it's just nuts.

You want The Queen dead? Off to the Tower you go.

Was just out for a wee walk and saw a big fat balding Rangers fan, top on, windows of the work van down blasting a party tune. :1eye
