And I would understand them too. I always thought that stricter airport security measures were to prevent terrorism not to make example that we are all equal in this world and everybody has to go through it. Here we say «le boss des bécosses» or «the boss of the backhouse» (referring when houses had not indoor bathroom) to describe someone very full of himself and of his useless little power. In my book the airport agents were just little bosses of the backhouses!

I fail to see how seeing Andrew being searched could be an example: well bravo he does NOT have any object that he could use to jeopardize the life of his fellow travellers or the staff. I would not expect less from a royal prince.

Just to clarify exactly what the "security inspection" of the Duke of York at Melbourne airport involved: it was a seven to ten second body scan done with a hand-held metal detector.

No problem. I guess those who can't appreciate Andrew will always be disappointed by his initial refusal and those who love him will disapproved of the authorities insisting for the procedure. Personnally, I do not appreciate at all when my Andrew is called pompous or arrogant.

The only personage who shall never be searched or questioned (diplomatic immunity I suppose one could say) on entry to Australia is her Queen, and that is the way it should & shall stay! I totally agree wth you Warren.

andrew on tv

Prince Andrew was on gma this morning this morning. He spoke about growing up in buckingham palce how they played ball and were rough and tumble but he didn't think they ever broke anything. He also said how proud they were of their two daughters. He also said they were proud of Beatrice for coming out and talking about dyslexia he said she wanted to do this.

I think he did a great job in the interview...very polished and articulate.

I taped the whole two hours this morning so I cannot wait to see it tonight.

I'm sure if he had a 19-year-old girlfriend, the press would be fascinated.

remarriage

I think he will remarry but when who knows. I don't think sarah would remarry him. She has her freedom and her own life now.

It's possible that marriage is not his cup of tea. It wasn't easy for either Charles or Anne to get to their second marriage, perhaps easier for Anne than Charles. When Edward go married, there were more stories about his siblings' divorce rates than how happy he and Sophie were. It will only be his personal decision for Andrew to go down the aisle again, certainly not necessary to secure line of succession or make any dynastic alliances.

In regards to remarriage...I was thinking strictly of companionship not to secure the line of succession or dynastic alliances.

I think one would agree that no matter how you feel about Charles and Camilla, they both appear happier now thatthey are married, and I was just curious if Andrew feels the same way (the lack of companionship that one shares with a spouse). You can see it with Anne and Tim and Sophie and Edward. Acknowledging of course, that we would never know how he truly felt!

You make a good point Zonk. I'd like to see Andrew remarry but unfortunately I don't think he will. Of all the Windsor children, I think he was scarred the most by his marriage breakdown. He really loved her and he got burned and humiliated rather badly. I think he's too gun-shy now. I think there is a lot more to him than you see on the surface which is why he is one of my favorite royals.

As a fellow member of the psychic community I have been trying to gather a feeling about this one and he will (If you don't believe in this kind of thing then just think of this as an opinion)
