KATIE'S WADDIN'
(To the tune of Jessie's Wedding)

Chorus
Oh me, oh my, she's naw sae shy,
Oh me, oh my, she's naw sae shy,
Oh me, oh my, she's naw sae shy,
#Stevie's# won the hairy pie.



1. The fuzz are getting' worried, and the media's in a steer
Katie Middleton's gettin' hitched tae Billy Windsor so Ah hear.

2. As a site for their reception, well they've had to travel far.
It might be doon in Windsor, but Ah think it's * Bertie's Bar *

3. They bought a china tea-set, aye and a chanty full of saut,
A bonnie coloured cairpet, a kettle and a pot.

4. Oh ye'll naw hae monnie problems though, no matter how ye try,
Aye but keep in wi' yir Gran-in Law'n ye'll maybe juist get bye.

5. Billy's ordered aw the booze, a forward-looking chap,
It'll need tae be cans an' bottles, cause she's naw got much on tap.

6. It'll cost a pretty penny, aye but whae's tae foot the bill?
-- Christ it's cheap at half the price, it's only echty mill!

7. The waddin' day'll be a time o' pomp an' circumstance,
Aye but Janet Street-Corner wusnae led a merry dance.

8. It's time tae cheinge oor weise and vote republican instead
    Cuz another king Billy is the last thing that we need



# Fellow students' at St. Andrew's a.k.a. for William, to throw snooping paparazzi off the scent.

* A b.y.o.b. shebeen of acclaimed repute, in the depths of Dalbeattie rain forest.

To all those who denigrate the "Royals" as a concept but actually target them as people, might I point to the cost per head of capita per year of: electing a president, and that process is rife with nepotism/corruption (see Florida and the Bushes).

On those two counts the Royals are cheap and have integrity by comparison. And no one elected them so all may lampoon them without the guilt of culpability.

I will be at Upton Festival where the extra day's holiday has been incorporated into the event. Thankyou KatesWill.

BTW I go to Sidmouth to get away from the pap on TV, but in 2012 they are planning a big screen for the Olympicophiles who just can't do without it. Geeze! And on the subject of cost - net cost - how much will 2012 cost us citizens? It sure ain't gonna make money for the country. Pick a statistic. I have two more.

As a fervent anti royalist I was a bit impressed by a statement that Harry made when being interviewed in the Artic when he said that if it were up to him & his brother they would have a quiet party but they were who they were and could not get away from the publicity.
The fault really lies in the press and TV hype where I frequently hear statements like - The whole nation will be celebrating or you still have time to organise your street party. Its all a political ruse to convince the populace that things are really pretty good

Anyway I shall be as far away as I can get from a Tv on the day

I agree that the Olympics are a much more depressing waste of time and money than any wedding.

In a world where obscenely rich fat cat bankers and suchlike rule the roost, I can't see much point in worrying about trivia like this. Dispensing with having a royal family doesn't seem to have made places like the United States more of a fair and equal society than, say Sweden.

I don't mind the royal family at all...as someone says above, they're cheaper to "run" as an institution than most elected presidencies...and in cases where the president's a figurehead (eg France, Russia) rather than part of the executive, having an hereditary head of state takes the politics right out of it. So I'm by no means a republican.

However, the "Kate and Wills" hype is driving me nuts and I too will be far away from a TV on the day....climbing a nice bit of gritstone at "the Roaches" in Staffordshie and staying in the Don Whillans Memorial Hut, which is let into the crag itself and has NO TV reception :-)

My husband was reading the paper and grousing about coverage of the r.w. "It' so STUPID!" he cried. (I'm retired, he's not.)

I said to him, "Dear, I pay the bills, I buy the food, I cook it. I get your medicine and change the oil in the cars. You have heat, light and water because of me.

But one thing I cannot do is make the royal wedding go away. So why don't you just enjoy it? How many bridesmaids will there be? What are the colors? (over here any wedding worth its salt has its colors)

Will there be a flower girl? If so, who and how old?

What does her dress look like?

Will the weddding cake be chocolate or not? How many layers?

In sum, a wedding is a big party and you're supposed to enjoy it."

If anybody knows the answers to the questions I just listed, please post them.

"However, the "Kate and Wills" hype is driving me nuts " ----

Why, Rob? Let me make clear that I am not the least bit interested in it. I think it's a bore. I only find more boring the leveller-and-FredMcC-type obsessives who object to anybody daring to like it all ~~ hence my own predictably boring going at them for their going at the wedding.

But, Ron, as I was saying. Just don't read those bits in the paper. Turn your attention off when that bit comes on the telly. Just ignore the whole thing, why don't you. {And you, leveller; & you, Fred ··· save you getting ulcers ~ which you're going to do if you keep on like that.}

So, honest, I only have your precious interests and health at ❤. Stop being so grudgingly NASTY about the pleasures of a whole lot of people just as good as you {you're supposed to be the great democrats, remember?}. And just ignore the whole thing.

It's easy-peasy..

Honest!

My wife told me there was going to be a royal wedding the other day. Being out of the media loop has many advantages, trust your spouse to spoil it. I googled Kate. She looked no stranger to depilation, expect some very hairy children. Bizarrely, I remember being on a cycle camping holiday in Norfolk when her husband was born.

Michael: Why, Rob? Let me make clear that I am not the least bit interested in it. I think it's a bore.

Because I have to turn over 5-6 pages of the paper with huge colour spreads *speculating* about bridesmaids' dresses etc to get to the news about what's happening in places like Afghanistan, Libya, Japan.

And I see David Cameron and other political leaders spending time moaning about the lack of street parties and castigating local councils for "'elf 'n' safety gone mad" etc when they could be using the same time to sort out a coherent policy on the NHS reforms, or tackling the rules that let 90% of pirates go free off Somalia or thinking about "what's next" in Libya.

As a non-republican who is quite happy with the royals as figureheads, t just seems that our priorities are bollixed up and what we're being given here is "bread and circuses". that's why it winds me up, even AS I ignore it.

I'm not totally oblivious to the forthcoming wedding, but I was in Nottingham last weekend for a bowling competition & Drinking a lovely pint of ale called "Kiss Me Kate" with a cartoon of a bride & groom on it. It was only after I arrived home, and read "The Nottingham Drinker" that it sank in that it's a new ale brewed to commemorate the wedding.

I put this in the wrong thread, about the Royal Film, down in the BS section, so I'll put it here as well:


I like William, always have done. I think he's a decent person. Kate Middleton already looks anorexic and very ill. I feel sorry for her and if I were her mother I'd be worried sick about how thin she looks.

I feel sorry for her not because of the family she's marrying into, but because of the paparazzi. Already she can't walk down a pavement without those arrogant bastards walking a few steps ahead of her, snapping her every movement, screaming out to her..It's like horrible history repeating itself....

I hope she's at least given protection from all of that soon.

"I'm not bothered about the wedding day, other than hoping it all goes well for them, but to be honest, I'd far rather, in today's climate, that they'd agreed to have a quiet wedding, away from all the razzamatazz...and the money it would have cost the nation being given TO the nation by the Queen.

Sure would have helped get some respect back for them I think.

Kate's family is in a documentary this coming Monday, called 'Meet The Middletons' which again seems so invasive, but what do I know about these things. Her family is very ordinary, very down to earth...but I think it would have been better if they'd all kept the cameras away.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


I've also just spotted this, in this thread, from 'banjoman'

"As a fervent anti royalist I was a bit impressed by a statement that Harry made when being interviewed in the Artic when he said that if it were up to him & his brother they would have a quiet party but they were who they were and could not get away from the publicity..."

Well, there you go, at least they were thinking along the same lines as I spoke of above. Diana's boys are good lads. She brought them up to be as 'normal' as she possibly could in the limited time she had. I think she'd be very proud of both of them.

OK, so the big day has arrived, if not yet dawned. After a session tonight that included some wedding songs and some anti-wedding ones, I was inspired to write this parody (to the tune of Leezie Lindsay).

Katie Middleton

Chorus:
Will ye gang tae the Abbey Katie Middleton
Will ye gang tae the Abbey wi' me
Will ye gang tae the Abbey Katie Middleton
My bride and my darling tae be?

Tae gang to the Abbey wi' you, Wills,
I dinna ken how that may be
For I ken na' the faimily ye cam frae
Nor whit the heck I'd be gaun wi'

Chorus:

Katie, lass ye maun ken little,
If sae be that ye dinna ken me
For my name is Prince William o' Windsor
A future king maybe I'll be.

Chorus:

She has kilted her dress o' white satin,
(or whitever colour - we'll see),
An' she's aff wi' Prince William O' Windsor
His bride and his darling tae be.

Chorus:
