Prince of Wales's 70th

Post by Boro Boy » Sat Nov 10, 2018 2:03 am

No doubt you will have seen the TV programme on the Prince of Wales shown on the BBC recently, but even if you didn't you may be interested to know that there is a commemorative stamp issue available: https://shop.royalmail.com/special-stam ... h-birthday

Don't you just hate it when people make 100% wrong assumptions....... :roll:
If the comment had been mine, then I'd smack you for a different reason - but the burger is a royalist!
Even were she not, her comment was not as divisive and mean-spirited as your reply.

I am a republican so wish him well but no interest in a stamp with his photo on.

Glad you appreciate my humour as well... ;)


...as there is some on here that do not and are easily open to abrupt reactions (macliam etc. [see his entry in this thread]) whilst you have taken my comments in good heart!

It can be difficult to interpret tone from written words alone. Remarks written as tongue-in-cheek can be read as abuse or trolling. If that happens, better to climb down rather than hit back.

It is also true to say that some people find it very hard to take criticism and always feel that they are right whatever the circumstances. They also feel that they have a right to promulgate their beliefs whatever the sensitivity of others. This is not aimed at any one person but a number of people including myself sometimes. Realistically it will not change. People are who and what they are. On this day of Armistice perhaps we should reflect and learn from the past. Accept and agree not to agree with others but to live in peace with each other somehow.
