I literally spat my morning coffee out in shock when tuning into Kay Burley @Breakfast last Thursday or Friday because Kay Burley wasn’t standing outside Buckingham Palace where she & just about every other Sky News anchor had been broadcasting from for the past week, interviewing a procession of Tory journalists working for the Tory press denying the Tory press has ever been racist towards Meghan Markle despite people having produced countless comparisons of the mainstream news media coverage of Meghan Markle has been far more negative as compared to coverage been given to Kate Middleton (she’s the one who married Harry’s older brother William). Meanwhile whilst Kay Burley (who I can’t believe is nearly 60?!?!?) parked her arse outside Buckingham Palace entertaining members of the Tory press in denial, Piers Morgan over on ITV’s Good Morning Britain for a change wasn’t bullying trans people or vegans & instead was himself raging about he’s not being racist about Meghan Markle but… & proving with every angry word he spouted he is indeed being a racist gammon when it comes to Meghan Markle.
Oh & what the fuck is this bullshit with the mainstream news media having gotten its panties in a bind about Meghan Markle eating avocado on toast & it somehow contributing to fucking up the environment, yeah as if the fucking Tory press care about the environment, I mean if they did shouldn’t they be leading a campaign to stop supermarkets from stocking avocados or something. Why doesn’t the Tory press just come out with the suggestion that the only fruit Meghan Markle should be eating are bananas & start making monkey chants at her being the institutionally racist cunts the Tory press happen to fucking be! The Tory press are just bad as any National Front skinhead racist scumbag who has thrown banana peels & made monkey noises at Black people, the difference with the Tory press is it’s a highbrow form of racism not the lowbrow form of chavvy gammon racism we come to expect racism to be.
One irony is not lost on me in regards to Harry & Meghan & the mainstream news media, that being it’s pretty apparent Harry & Meghan have had enough of the shitty coverage & press intrusion they’ve received from the mainstream news media & so in response the mainstream news media are now obsessing about Meghan & Harry having had enough of the mainstream news media which includes having photographers camped outside where ever it is in Canada Meghan Markle has holed herself up waiting to get an unsolicited snap to accompany some story full of sensationalism untruths, fuck me challenge the mainstream news media establishment in this country & it triggers them to be even more cuntish something which of course in a speech at a private function this past weekend Harry addressed. But Harry taking on the mainstream news media establishment leads me to another irony from a different perspective, which is Harry might complain about the coverage given to him & Meghan but when there’s a cause he supports or something he needs to promote etc when he & Meghan are attempting to be more financially independent then he’s going to be calling on the mainstream news media for broadcast time & column inches.
In the deal that seems to have been struck with grandma Lizzy, sorry royalist sycophants I meant her royal highness grandma Queen Lizzy, it’s now definitely going to be harder for Meghan & particularly Harry to dine out on having been members of the royal family, I mean not being able to use the title of HRH is going to knock a zero maybe a few zeros off any fee on the after dinner speaker circuit. With the deal struck with Queen Lizzy, Meghan & Harry are going to have to financially contribute to the multi-million pound renovation of the couples Frogmore Cottage residence despite the fact its on the royal estate at Windsor & thus (not sure this makes sense to anybody else?) wouldn’t it be more appropriate for those who want to be members of the royal family to pay for the renovation of any residences on any royal estate & then charge rent to whoever gwts to live there. One thing I did think a little unfair to Harry in regards to deal struck with Queen Lizzy for him & Meghan to step down as senior royals is that he’s going to have to relinquish many of his military appointments, now an acquaintance of mine who did serve in the military did explain to me this was because these appointments were royal appointments as in honouree head of the marines etc, but Harry Windsor did serve for real on the frontline in Afghanistan & though I might not always agree with imperialist misadventures of the Military Industrial Complex I do have some grudging respect for those troops who believe they’re helping defend the realm etc.
I know many comrades on the left of political spectrum who despite might wanting to abolish the monarchy are expressing solidarity with Harry & Meghan in wanting out of the royal rat-race & with the stance they’re taking against the mainstream news media establishment, but for me personally I think there’s irony of hypocrisy on all sides, actually as you might be able to tell from the title of this article I wasn’t exactly enthusiastic about having to write yet again about the supposed royal crisis surrounding Harry & Meghan. Yes it might be my job as a political commentator to write articles about stuff which is apparent in its political relevance because its dominating the news headlines or sometimes stuff which isn’t hitting the headlines that I think is of political relevant, a rabid republican I might be who’s taken many opportunities in the past to knock the institution of the monarchy, but with this supposed royal crisis I just can’t help thinking royal crisis I royally don’t give shit about there being a royal crisis, maybe it’s because I think all this Megxit bullshit is really just some posh family having a tiff & there are more important things in this world for us to be obsessing about.
