Feline Suitcases.....

It's that time again.....time to dust off the suitcases and organise feline air tickets. Bangkok has been fun, however the Island Boy and myself would actually like to live in the same place...the Gods have indeed smiled on us....we both have new jobs based about 15 minutes away from each other...sure as hell beats a 2 or 3 hour flight!!

Destination: Island of the Gods.

This time it's personal...

For those following British news, you will be aware that yesterday saw council elections and voting for the new (or old!) London Mayor.

I am now so out of touch with British politics I just get the general jist of things from reading the papers, the Daily Mail is one paper that allows and receives comments.

Judging by the comments left on the Daily Mail's article about Labour's defeat at the polls; the only reason why the Tories have been so successful is because Labour seem to have really screwed things up of late and not because the Tories are so much better and offer that much better an alternative.

The elections for Mayor of London are a slightly different ball game. Here, I would beg to differ with Jakartass and my vote (if I had one) would be for Boris Johnson aka the man who pissed off Liverpool; the reason being...I really can't stand Ken Livingstone he sets my teeth on edge everytime I hear or see I's personal!

I wonder if Boris has cat?

Turn again, Whittington,
Once Mayor of London!
Turn again, Whittington,
Twice Mayor of London!
Turn again, Whittington,
Thrice Mayor of London!

Losing her religion....

I am a little surprised by the fact that Peter Phillips' fiancee has renounced her Roman Catholic faith in order that Peter Phillips does not need to renounce his place in the line of succession, as per the 1701 Act of Settlement.

Princess Anne's son is 11th in line to the throne; following Charles and his sons, Andrew and his daughters and Edward and his two children and Princess Anne. So the chances of his inheriting the throne are slim to non-existant; added to the fact that Princess Anne has brought her children up to be as non-royal as possible even refusing titles for them when they were born.

So, why on earth would they follow this path; Peter Phillips would not be setting a precedent if he were no longer in line of succession, Prince Michael of Kent was excluded from the line of succession after he married a Roman Catholic in 1978; Peter Phillips has not carried out royal duties until now; so it does all seem quite strange!
