Someone has to do it... :)

You'll notice that it's the wrath of ed, not me. I'm too fucking old and stupid to have any wrath of my own anymore. :D

EXCLUSIVE: 'They made Britain great again by leaving, I hope they do the same for us.' Outraged senior campaign advisor to President Trump disses Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for insinuating themselves into U.S. election
  • Harry and Meghan urged citizens to register to vote in the November 3 election
  • The Duchess of Sussex spoke of the 'most important election of our lifetime'
  • 'As we approach this November, it's vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity,' Harry said
  • Corey Lewandowski, senior advisor to the Trump campaign, blasted the couple for insinuating themselves in the US election
  • Royal family members are expected to remain strictly neutral in UK politics
  • Critics said they should give up their titles if they wanted to comment on the US
  • Viewers thought it was 'obvious' that Harry and Meghan were backing Joe Biden
President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski teed off on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after they recorded a video plug urging Americans to register to vote and Harry urged Americans to 'reject hate speech.'

'They made Britain great again by leaving, I hope they do the same for us,' Lewandowski, now a senior 2020 advisor to the Trump campaign, told DailyMail.com Wednesday, in comments after Harry and Meghan's comments in a Time 100 video message made waves on both sides of the Atlantic.

...
A bit fatuous to call it election interference when no American gives a shit what Harry thinks.

Maybe some Democrats will stick up for him just because he was dissed by The Don (by proxy), but that's not the same as giving a shit what Harry thinks.

I rate this story five of these ==> :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:
Ooooh, an "EXCLUSIVE". :lol:

Let's see what else it says:
Speaking in a Time 100 video message, apparently filmed from their California home, Harry admitted he was not eligible to vote - adding that he had never voted in the UK either where convention dictates that royals keep well clear of politics.

While Harry and Meghan did not name their favored candidate, many viewers thought it 'obvious' they were backing Joe Biden over Donald Trump - although a source close to Harry denied this.
So a 36-year-old man, well over the legal voting age in Britain, but who has never bothered to vote himself, thinks it's important for the rest of us to vote. :lol:

He’s trying to say vote against Trump, without saying it. He’s inserting himself into politics gingerly.
Is Harry saying vote against Trump . Or is it what you want him to be saying.

Harry is just doing what Meghan told him to do - same as always. He's not smart enough to make any decisions by himself.

Once again, Meghan has got what she desires - lots of lovely publicity.

And of course as a US citizen (and native born at that) there is no question she has the right to electioneer in US elections.

Someone tell me who Piers Morgan is (besides the author of this piece).

PIERS MORGAN: Meghan and Harry's brazen disregard for royal neutrality rules to dump on Trump leaves the Queen with no option but to strip them of ALL their royal titles
Daily Fail

Short version: They would no longer be the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, etc.

But of course here in the USA they are allowed to call themselves anything they want as long as they aren't impersonating someone else.

It's an old California tradition, as California traditions go.

If the Emperor Norton can do it, so can the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. :lmao:


Look what I found. :)

It's one of the cast-iron rules of being a member of the Royal Family - that you don't spout off your own political opinions for public consumption because it would damage the integrity of the Monarchy.
So is that just an unwritten rule or is it actually a law?

I know why they stay out of politics, or at least keep it behind closed doors, but isn't that just a convention?

Heck, I think the guy next in line for the throne (Charlie) has made public statements of a vaguely political nature. Not endorsing a particular candidate, but advocating for certain causes.

Hes the guy who took over Larry King's slot on CNN

Has "broken clock" opinions. Much more of a publicity seeker than Meghan ever has been.

But dont mention that to the proles.
