Kate expectations

ARE you ready for it? Six months of blanket coverage of Kate’s pregnancy?

You don’t get more Royalist than me, after all, I’ve even got royal blood, but not even I could care a jot about the impending arrival of a future heir to the throne.

True, I admit there is a trace of bitterness that this news means I move even further down the pecking order, but there is a lot more to my ambivalence towards the matter than that.

The baby’s not due for another six months or so, so can’t we all just calm down until then at least.

Also, I’m not very keen on babies.

From my limited experience of them they smell, make a lot of noise, and contribute absolutely nothing to society.

But then again I suppose some Republicans would say exactly the same about the Royal Family.
