I'm a DofE Assesor. The c**t never even came up with the idea. Just allowed his logo be used.

I never met the great man having rubbered the "opportunity" to go to Holyrood whenever invited

Buroo clerk- that's a job for life in Lanarkshire anyway.

I was inspired by the counter clerk's laconic, devil may care approach to customer service at my first signing on day. I pledged to develop my career among the hopeless and unemployable.

Never did DoE but I can also lash a clove hitch as well as one on the bight.

My daughter did DoE through to Gold and really enjoyed it. We went along to Holyrood but the Chooky was indisposed so Edward did the rounds of the weans - with a good deal more decorum and interaction than his old man according to those who know about these things. 

Anyway, it was probably a dying wish that the riff raff shouldn't get a day off and to make sure he was planted at the weekend to f**k up a Saturday to boot.  

I'm still in 2 minds about whether or not to go to Windsor to stand like a fucking moron to pay my respects. I'll see how I feel on Friday ...

Would the Duke approve of something being differently coloured?

Rule of thumb: does he/she leave the world poorer for them not being in it, or improved?

If the above does not produce a clear answer: did he/she try to improve the world when they were in it?

For me, the likes of Thatcher fail on the first question, whereas Phil the Greek, and I feel I'm being generous here, gets to the second before failing.

Kind of sums it up for me. (Please don't use the 'T' word again. It hurts).

If my c**t of a brother (RIP) hadn’t nicked it from my Dad’s hoose after her died (Dad obviously) then I would have had a fantastic pic of when chooky visited Vulcan in Caithness many moons ago. The pic is awesome, chooky is leaning into shake hands with my Dad who looks like he’s thinking “I’m not sure, is my watch on that wrist?”

I really wish I could post it!

They are still droning on about Phil. Don't think that many folk give a shite about him. Just feel as though the Establishment are using it as a dress rehearsal for Lizzy pegging it and pushing it to see how many tributes they can get away with before a nationwide heads gone storming of the Mall moment happens.

Sickner for the BBC this morning. They have sent a reporter to Crete, where the Duke was born, and asked her how the people there are reacting to his death. The reply "With some indifference".  What sort of peasants are these people?  No wonder we left the EEC.

Fair play to the hack who was sitting in freezing London and had the balls to go to the gaffer and say I think we should go to his place of birth. No doubt someone is winging their way to the tribe in the Pacific.

I mind guys at school saying the duke of edinburgh award would look really good on your CV, like aye you're going to go into a job interview and 90% of the questions will be about how you took the initiative in reading a map and pitching a tent and got a gold star for it
