Sir Alex Ferguson phoned this morning to tell one he’d decided to retire from Manchester United Football Club. Said “the time was right”, although according to his watch, he had another six minutes.
During the past few months Pope Benedict XVI, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, and now Sir Alex Ferguson have all retired to let someone younger have a go. Just saying.
Camilla and I attended the State Opening of Parliament for some work experience. Very exciting, although slightly upset that one had forgotten to record Jeremy Kyle.
One told Camilla there was no way she was wearing that to the Palace of Westminster, no matter how funny she’d find the look on Mr Cameron’s face. To be fair to her costume, Guy Fawkes was the last person to enter Parliament with honest intentions.
Mother seemed unhappy with the timing of the announcement from Manchester. This isn’t the first time she’s been overshadowed by someone called Fergie.
Had to wait for what seemed an eternity for The Muppets (Government) to shuffle in. Seriously think we missed a trick by not having them all rounded up and imprisoned for crimes against humanity.
Speech time soon arrived. It had been carefully written out by Her Majesty’s Government. Judging by the spelling mistakes and poor colouring, it was obvious Mr Clegg was the author. Was almost tempted to change “My Lords and Members of the House of Commons” to “Morning Benders”, but didn’t.
“Blah, blah, immigration, blah, spending cuts, blah, blah, lies, blah and too little too late”.
At least one thinks that’s what was mentioned.
Once the speech was finished, we decided to leave Kermit (Cameron) and Miss Piggy (Miliband) squabbling. The Royal Family have far more important things to take care of. Like a KFC Bargain Bucket.
