Thanks Elspeth. I misunderstood. I totally agree with this.

Yes, as an American, I used those terms to describe the President of my country as I have a right to under the first amendment of our constitution. However, it is against the rules of this forum to speak of political policy and I should have found a better way to express my antipathy in relation to the story concerning the President not letting Camilla come to the White House due to being a divorcee. I apologize for my terminology in expressing my feelings and breaking the rules of the forum, but I won't apologize for the feelings I have.

The problem with debates becoming political is they quickly become "party political", then descend into a slanging match of sorts along the lines of "George Bush is a fool", "George Bush is great", "Bill Clinton..." Those of us who either don't care what people think about George Bush (or Bill Clinton), or Iraq, or choose not to air their thoughts on these subjects in these forums get disenchanted with the tone and acrimony. It can be tiresome when posters are sniping at each other, even more so when it's not royal-related. Political slanging-matches within a thread can discourage others from participating, give the impression it's best not to air an opinion because of a possible fierce response, and just come across as ugly.

Having spent a few years on discussion boards discussing religion and politics, I can confirm that it's very helpful to have a thick skin when venturing into both these subjects; this is a lot of the reason why discussion about politics isn't permitted here except in the most general terms. Same for religion, although it tends not to heat up as fast as political dicussions on this board.

So. Let's just take it as read that Tiaraprin believes George Bush is a moron but wouldn't think of mentioning it on a board as refined as this , and move on from there.

But don't you think it must have been quite a reunion, with Prince Philip, the Duchess of York, and the Duchess of Cornwall possibly all in the same room? Yikes.

That is too funny to contemplate!!:p Nice to see Charles wants to spend more time with his "loved one". Too bad he didn't realize this fact with Diana!

Yes, it's sad he leaves. However, he's becoming a little too old for this sport and he has suffered several injuries (broken bones included) over the years. His dad stopped to play regularly at 50, even though he still was remarkably fit - besides his right wrist.
