You've got to hand it to Prince Charles, as soon as he makes a gaff it isn't long before he shows the UK that he still has his finger on the pulse and reconnects with us, his subjects. Today it was announced that he and Camilla would acknowledge sin during their upcoming wedding fiasco ceremony. The sinful among us are overjoyed that our betters are also capable of the occasional evil deed. And the happy couple don't stop there. Check out this excerpt from their vows:

"We acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness, which we, from time to time, most grievously have committed, by thought, word and deed, against thy Divine Majesty, provoking most justly thy wrath and indignation against us"

We don't know if we could be so noble as to forgive any supernatural force that gave us a damn good smiting. Perhaps that's the real difference between us ordinary sorts and those born to rule.

That and the ability to sell postcards.

We admit that we thought the wedding was going to be a dull affair, but that was before The Sun started smuggling (fake) bombs into Windsor Castle. If the idiots who forget to put the news into their newspaper each and every day can pull off a gunpowder plot then there's still hope that the whole thing will end in fireworks.

Aptly there will also be a reading from the Book of Revelation.

I find your comments a little rude to be honest. You're basically saying that you hope that someone's wedding day is ruined. That's not particularly nice, regardless of who the people are. Also, you're slating them for asking for forgiveness for their sins during their ceremony, but surely it's better that they do admit they 'sinned' rather than just ignore the fact altogether. They just can't win. Whilst I don't agree one little bit with the cheating that went on during their first marriages, give them a chance. This is their wedding day and wishing for someone's wedding to go up in flames is just plain nasty.

Yep - they just can't win. Apart from that whole leaching off the public thing that they do so well at. If they were just anyone I wouldn't give a damn about their wedding, but as they represent an archaic and useless establishment that I believe we'd be well shot of I feel I have the right to give them a kicking. I couldn't care less about their inability to delay fucking one another until after Diana was Parisian roadkill, but I do care that their wedding is just yet another tired chapter in a story that should have been assigned to the history books years ago.

Check out http://www.republic.org.uk/ for the lowdown and why it'd be a good thing if Windsor and the inbreds all go up in flames tomorrow.

Well, that's your opinion and I have mine. I still think that wanting someone's wedding day to be ruined is a terrible thing. Regardless of who they are, it's *their wedding day*.

Mike

I'll keep my fingers crossed that it doesn't rain then ;)

Polly

cunt.
