Isn`t it amazing how the Media seldom had anything nice to say about him over the years, and now he`s gone it`s all "What a Wonderful Chap", and how he will be missed and all that. Two-faced arseh*les!
Personally, I thought he was a great guy. He had his faults, but don`t we all. As for his "gaffes", well, in my opinion, most of them were to put the people he was talking to at ease, to show them he was just a man like any other, nothing to be scared of, though of course he sometimes went a bit far, and used phrases that were OK decades ago, but in these more sensitive times not so much.
I agree 100% he had that bump cupl years ago and he was hounded more than Jimmy savile FFS Yet as you say hes one above god now (well I'm sure hes cracking them off with him now )
I have to say I liked him he was a MAN yes he made gaffes so what who doesn't And I bet he made more ppl at ease once he got chatting So I'm well sad he has passed I just wished he made it to 100 as I think it would been so much fun the queen handing him the 100 year old congratulations letter . I bet he say !! What this another shopping list !! RIP HRH .
..VAME is the best an Action man can get .....there can only be one ....there is only one ..... VAME....
He was a great man, he served this county although he was not from hear. He stud by the queen and help her through all the bad times and the good, the likes of him are a fast dying bread, god bless him and look after him.
