but there is an enormous difference in animals being reared in often awful conditions and killed in abottoirs and animals who have had a nice life and are killed (hopefully by a skilled person) instantly.

(Skydragon you of all people surely can see that )

I know that a wife and prostitute both offer sex but there is a huge difference and I am not condemming any of the two.

So, I still am not happy with his sense of humor on this point, but we all do not get it right all the time.

I don't see any difference between them. The terrible suffering of animals sent to a slaughter house and a fox chased for miles across the countryside and when caught, ripped to shreds by hounds to the delight of the huntsmen. Both are ****. When most people talk about blood sports here, they are primarily talking about foxhunting, not a hopefully quick death from an accurate shot, (and they are few and far between).

I do however believe there is a vast difference between a wife and a prostitute.

Prince Philip causes controversy after joking about blind IRA hero's tie choice | Mail Online

He's notorious for his ability to put his foot in his mouth at the drop of a brick.

And now another tale of Prince Philip's astonishing gaffability has emerged.

Meeting a teenage Army cadet who lost nearly all his sight in an IRA bomb attack, the prince managed to poke fun at his dress sense.

Not very good on Prince Phillips part, this gaffe has taken a while to surface.

And once again the 'victim' doesn't appear to have taken offence but even retaliated with the tie at the Jubilee celebrations.

Another Daily Mail attack on the royal family.

Nice to see the person subject to the Prince's insult didn't take it personally.

Cool

The young man's mother brought the subject up in an interview with the BBC and then the media blew the whole thing up. If the young man was not offended by the remark, then it's over. I get a kick out of Prince Phillip and at his age now, he isn't going to stop. He's a person who is very straight forward.

The Daily Mail has an amusing parody of Prince Phillip giving the Christmas Speech. Funny.

With apologies to Her Majesty, Quentin Letts imagines what if Prince Philip made tomorrow's Queen's broadcast ... | Mail Online

I'm sure he'd be more careful than that. But that's quite hilarious.

When I read this yesterday afternoon I got a good laugh and thought - so true to Philip.

Duke of Edinburgh asks female sea cadet if she works at a strip club - Telegraph

The Duke of Edinburgh took a female sea cadet by surprise when he asked her if she worked at a strip club.

Prince Philip put the question to Elizabeth Rendle, 24, as he and The Queen met cadets at Wyvern barracks in Exeter, Devon.

Asked what she did for a living she told him that she worked in a nightclub to which the Duke responded: "Is it a strip club?"

Observing her surprise he dismissed the suggestion saying that it was "probably too cold for that anyway".

I'm glad there are still some in the public eye who are still able to speak their mind without worrying about being offensive or politically correct.

Cheeky sod...hahaha.

That at the age of 89, his inquisition should reflect the curiosity one would expect of a younger man amuses me very much. The old devil...
