Has the BBC gone mad?

I wonder if Rooney filled it in. I'm sure he's interested in a older single lady.

I was trying to find a radio station that wasn't making me wanna puke and I ended up on radio 2. Fucking hell, it was like fawn fawn, bow, scrape, fawn and all kinds of shite like that, what would you say to the Queen, send us your thoughts. Some soft c*nt text in that he was in mourning and closed his business for 3 days as a mark of respect  :puke2 :puke2 :puke2

To be fair Rob,. I struggle to think of a media outlet that would be more fawny than R2.  They do like playing common people a lot, Sonu stick with them usually.

Aye, it was sadly the only one I was getting a decent signal on. Then managed to get Absolute on and it was the footy show, so was 2 fellas dicking about and was a refreshing change, sadly I drove out of their area far too quickly.

Yorky mentioned Doug Mountjoy. It was some other legend who brought Drago into it.

It was definitely Doug Mountjoy. Phil showed me a couple of the fan letters. In the last one he pretended to be a schoolboy from Merthyr Tydvil, just so he could get Doug's autograph. But like I said he never got a reply. It think it was Princess Anne who eventually faked a letter to Phil from Mountjoy, just to put a smile on her dad's face. But you could see the joins. It was obvious the letter hadn't come from a pro-snooker player. I believel she even talked about falling into the trout hatchery at Hicksteed. Phil was furious at the deception.

I should add that he did like Tony Drago though. Just not as much as Doug. He kept telling me how well Tony had withstood the Luftwaffe bombardment in 1942. He remembered seeing some picture of young 'Tone' (as he always called him) bringing down a Dornier with a home made catapult. I didnt have the heart to tell him that Tony was from Luton.   

Anyway, must be off. The local Labour party has decided to have a mass striptease in the town centre in honour of Phil.

I'm sensing some scepticism. Which is a pity. I would never joke about something so serious.

There's been a spontaneous outburst of genuine popular grief round these parts. Tomorrow morning the whole neighbourhood has agreed to make a communal moussaka to honour Phil. They reckon it will feed 10,000 people. I did say "he's not really Greek you know", but was told not to be such a racist. "Phil wouldn't like it" etc etc.

I can only ever remember such a hoolabaloo when John Spencer died. Though an Aussie friend tells me that his continent went into 40 days mourning when Eddie Charlton popped his clogs.

Strange times. Keep strong everyone. We can get through this together.

I cannot believe this is now descending into smut and innuendo. As i think I explained before Phil did not enjoy even mildly risque jokes. He did ask Elizabeth, on the eve of their betrothal, whether she was a genuine John Virgo fan and some people did try to twist this into a disguting enquiry about her previous love life. But Phil was a snooker nut, as I think I might have mentioned, and he genuinely wanted to known whether she was a Virgo girl or a Pullman girl. Call his conversation boring if you must, but please do not try to make him out as some kind of snickering sexist. That was NOT the Phil I knew and loved.

I don't know why anyone would think I was trying to deceive RAWK with my story. I just thought people might be interested in my own personal memory of Phil. And before anyone gets aggravated by my calling him that and not HRH or Prince or Duke etc let me tell you that it the chap himself who told me to call him Phil. Like i said before he hated all the rigmarole around the monarchy. He was always complaining about the medals they made him wear, not least because he had to take them off each time he dry cleaned his jacket.

I bumped into him once in an amusement arcade in Blackpool. He was playing that game where you used to roll those old twopenny bits down a slot and time it so that the moving roller sent a whole cliff of other twopenny bits into a cascade and into your pocket. I thought "Is it him?" because you don't expect to see royals working the slots off Blackpool prom. But he saw me and waved and shouted "Ey up Mark" and I joined him at the table. I even gave him a few of my own coins after he'd run out. He told me he loved coming to Blackpool on his own because no one ever recognised him and he could just get on doing what he loved doing. Hiding in plain sight he said. Only once had someone said "You look like the Queen's husband" and Phil replied, "What, the Greek bloke? Cheers." The bloke then had got a bit defensive. "Didn't mean to insult you by calling you a Greek", he said. And then Phil said "Well, depends what you mean by Greek. Are we talking race, nationality, ethnicity or ancestry?" That ended the conversation of course. Always does. In actual fact he was descended from Agamemnon, but he never publicised the fact. "It'd sound like I were boasting", he said. Typical Phil, that.

I heard today, by the way, that he left me 14 pence in his will. He hadn't forgotten. Class.

I shall be giving my own 14 minutes of silence some time today. I hope Liverpool do the right thing and rename the Kop the Phil Stand.

Miss you Phil.

Lots of other stories leaking out about him in the broadsheets now. Apparently he always attended the Clitheroe black pudding tickling summit, where he once famously won the gurning competition although only there as a spectator, "Cheeky buggers".

Yes he was very upset by that Doc. Very upset indeed. When the Queen found out she suggested a naval bombardment of Clitheroe and was only talked down when it became apparent to her that the town wasn't anywhere near the coast. She then suggested that the naval guns be trained on Liverpool instead. "It's in the same county after all" - that's what she said. Fortunately the 1972 Local Government Act had just been pushed through parliament and the Privy Council was able to persuade her that because Liverpool was now in a new county called Merseyside such gunboat diplomacy might look vindictive and arbitrary. But it was a very close thing.

I should add that Phil was a moderating voice throughout. He liked Liverpool and was in fact going out with Nerys Hughes at the time. Later, as you probably know, he was Bleasdale's script editor on Boys from the Blackstuff.

I wish this was more widely known.  It does my nut in when people call him a snob.

These Starmer comments we've been hearing since Friday... were they all said at the same time and they're just being drip-fed out by the media?

Or does he keep trying to out-gush himself? The way it's going he'll soon be giving press conferences from in front of a Phil the Greek shrine.

It would have been worth keeping Corbyn just for the pithy condolences uttered through gritted teeth.

Yes he was very upset by that Doc. Very upset indeed. When the Queen found out she suggested a naval bombardment of Clitheroe and was only talked down when it became apparent to her that the town wasn't anywhere near the coast. She then suggested that the naval guns be trained on Liverpool instead. "It's in the same county after all" - that's what she said. Fortunately the 1972 Local Government Act had just been pushed through parliament and the Privy Council was able to persuade her that because Liverpool was now in a new county called Merseyside such gunboat diplomacy might look vindictive and arbitrary. But it was a very close thing.

I should add that Phil was a moderating voice throughout. He liked Liverpool and was in fact going out with Nerys Hughes at the time. Later, as you probably know, he was Bleasdale's script editor on Boys from the Blackstuff.

I wish this was more widely known.  It does my nut in when people call him a snob.
Of course, he picked up his horse and carriage skills working on the coal, where he was always willing to lend a hand - saved that leather apron going to waste too.

Phil the Greek telling interviewer that the NHS is a 'sacred cow'

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/FEqILsI4WDI" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" class="bbc_link bbc_flash_disabled new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/FEqILsI4WDI</a>

I'm guessing he ideally would have loved to add the head of this scared cow to his collection of tiger and rhino hunting trophies.




This whole interview (there’s more of it on you tube) is absolutely fascinating... 
“Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
“Generosity always pays off. Generosity in your effort, in your work, in your kindness, in the way you look after people and take care of people. In the long run, if you are generous with a heart, and with humanity, it always pays off.”

RIP YNWA Prince "Man of the People" Phil.

Some incredible entertainment these last two pages.

Ben Partridge has shared his reminiscences of Prince Philip on Twitter. Also fascinating. Well worth reading for an insight into what made him such a great servant to his country.

So, you might call him, "The People's Prince"? No wonder the nation is mourning.

(By "nation", I of course mean England - I doubt Wales, Scotland or Ireland give much of a shit - Greece neither, for that matter - it's not like he did anything to help send the Elgin Marbles home.......)

Lots of support for the royal family in Wales and Scotland (and defo plenty among certain obvious parts of NI)
https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/royal-family-support-wales-queen-17299194

Not going to pretend I relate to it, but it's not just an English phenomenon (as that survey shows, a constituency in Liverpool had the lowest support in the UK - something to be proud of in my book). Still, am no less embarased to be from a country that shuts down its public health communications during a pandemic because of some old man/bloodline.

Also, at risk of inviting the wrath of some of those who think there's loads of posters on here supporting the royal family, but I reckon most greeks probably care about his fighting against the Axis who occupied greece more than his advocacy to the british museum. Got nothing to back that up to be fair though haha, could be wrong! :)
