Oh dear, she is getting on now. She arrived at Kings Lynn Station, Norfolk to be at Sandringham for this year's Christmas sojourn. Mind the gap Betty.
These Royal types seem to like things that run on rails.
This parasite on society The People's Prince, Harry with his missus, rode on a suspiciously uncrowded, ungraffitied and window unetched and clean tram to South Melbourne Beach, while chatting to suspiciously neat school children. PR Score, 10/10.
Not all is good about public transport. This terrible tram crash on route 25E in Lisbon resulted in 28 people being injured. It is a wonder no one was killed, although perhaps the tram had to be further damaged to extract people. It would have been ironical if 28 people were injured in a tram crash on the famous Lisbon tourist tram route, 28. They do drive the trams very furiously there, at times less than a metre from someone's front door.
9 is one of our commercial tv stations Channel Nine, with many other interests and Fairfax Press own The Age in Melbourne and The Sydney Morning Herald, both good broadsheet newspapers, that are now tabloid in size........and perhaps becoming more tabloid by nature. The acquisition by Channel 9 will probably speed up that process. Nine tried to report it as a merger, and were quickly howled down, but with decreasing diversity of our media, who will be around to howl things down? Probably not Fairfax Press if it is to do with Channel Nine and the Packer empire. Only our ABC.
What would a post from me be without including a bit of sleaze. The bottom picture is not a child's dummy (pacifier) but nine months later, that is what may be needed.
Even the sleazebag that I am, I did not immediately get this one. Sexist really isn't it, but it amused me.
