    Nah he's probably worked for a government department, broadcaster, etc where they have contingency plans for royal deaths.

    When the DofE dropped dead I was impressed how the radio dealt with it.

    We probably get a national month of mourning. Remember when Diana died, that will be nothing in comparison.

    There's a guy in a redecorated flat who just keeps lying and lying, but will not resign and his party don't want him to either. Shows that if you say the wrong thing and resign, you'll be remembered. If you keep doing wrong but waffle your way through, you can get away with murder (and fraud, and Omicronyism, and adultery, etc)
    The sad reality with Boris is that "lying cretin" was baked in from the start for many, perhaps most that voted for him, but the realistic alternative was Corbyn. This is partly why revelations about his character don't really stick, because they're not revelations to most.
