Royal news is icing on Christmas cake

WHAT better way to round off what has been, by anyone’s standards, a great year for Britain, than news that a royal baby is on the way?

Have your say

I have to agree with Simon Hunter shame it takes a none Brit to sing our praises!! Im personally for the Royal Family well the imediate ones that is.
On a local issue whats the chances they dint choose FGH for the choice of birth place?

Wonderful article and they echo my sentiments perfectly!!
We should be proud that we are subjects of the greatest monarchy in the world. Many countries are envious of our royal family and so they should be!! I can not wait until the royal birth (i am hoping that its a little girl, they look much more cuter than boys) I already have my bunting at the ready for what promises to be another wonderful royal occassion in our lives.
God bless em all!!

Hi Ned,Its nothing at all to do with national moods one way or the other.Capitalism owns the the media and its the medias job,of which newspapers are a major part,to support and uphold the interests of the capitalists and the establishment,of which the royal family of parasites are also a major part.From the Evening Mail to the Daily Telegraph there are two bit journalists such as Allonby,who are in the main drawn from working class backgrounds,such as Allonby,who are ordered by their editors-who are ordered by the newspaper groups owners-to write and print this drivel.Indeed,these words of mine which I hope you get to see would never ever be allowed on to the letters page of any royal supporting newspaper,lest be heavily edited.To put it bluntly,Newspapers buy writers,to buy and fake 'public opinion' for the benefit of capitalism.

I`d love some parenting tips off the royals,well actually the money (handed to them) to afford a nanny then send them to boarding school for their formative years.Wonderful examples of normal family life in this country they are.
As for 2012 being a great year i think most of us know the answer to that one.

The level & style of this right-wing journalist drivel on this topic doesn't come as any suprise to me.
She seems to be promoting the ideology which this present government seems to oppose-having a scrounger being born into a world whos' parents do not-and never will-work for a living!
Just like all the rest of the parasitic predecessors!
How on earth can you talk a load of drivel when over the past 12 months we have beared witness to working class people losing their jobs, losing their income, losing their homes, losing their dignity, losing their families/marriage breakdowns & losing their pride.
Energy bills are going through the roof in price as a direct result of privatisation & people are stuggling to pay & make ends meet.
Homelessness is now at an all time high & people can't get homes unless they subject them selves to rip off slum rent landlords who charge extortionate rents.
Yes it has been the diamond jubilee this year 2012 & have you the slightest idea as to how much of taxpayers money was wasted on this white elephant parade?
And at the same time our government was forcing unemployed people to steward the carnival by making them "work for their dole", in other words, the workfare scheme.
Yes I one of the anti-monarchy brigade & with good reasons to do so when apart from the afore mentioned, how much was wasted on the drivel of the royal wedding the previous year?????
We may living in this austerity era but why the hell can't these royal scroungers pay for it????
I'd abolish & terminate the monarchy now!

Louise, A long time fan of yours, however, I have no time for the parasites who comprise the royal family, let alone rejoice at another one joining them. You may have misread the National mood but a lot of people feel as I do.

£180 million.

Yes,regular readers of Allonby's bile wont be at all surprised at her delight that another royal scrounger is on the way,so,lets hope Her and Her dedicated followers realise how progressive the whole thing is.Take the Daily Mail headline,"Little girl who'll give Britain its first classless sovereign"for example.How can there be a classless monarch,you may ask.Don't they snatch £180 a year from us and live in free palaces?.Well according to the Mail,the child will have "Working Class" ancestors as well as "Blue Blood" ones.It goes on,"in this new egalitarian age the house of windsor will never be the same again".So the baby will follow in that great royal tradition of sucking up the wealth that we create.But if you think about it,its a victory for equality.And the baby could be a girl.So a woman could end up being the monarch.Now this is portrayed in the Daily Mail,with far more gusto in my opinion than Allonby could ever possibly muster,as an exiting new development that shows how liberated women are today.But don't we already have a female monarch,you may ask.And hasn't it been utterly irrelevant to the vast majority of women in Britain,Allonby aside.Clearly many questions remain unanswered,but don't let that stop you celebrating along with Allonby now!.

I stopped reading after the, " by anyone's standards, this has been a great year." Utter twoddle, guessing this poor reporter has not lost her job or struggled to put meals on the table this year. Stupid woman.

...And now thanks to the media attention, and no doubt NHS Managers with your complete servitude towards the Royals we have had a real tragedy (not a bout of morning sickness) a poor woman has taken her own life due to stupid outdated attitudes towards the monarchy.
