“…Is it just me or does everyone feel embarrassed about how pathetically cynical our Prime Minister is by bestowing our country’s highest honour on the spouse of the Queen?
Prince Philip is known for only two things: wandering two steps behind his wife at public engagements -
- and frequently embarrassing everyone with his moronic mutterings that have at times bordered on racist and sexist.
