The king news astonishes me less that the fact that there is a Richard theThird Society, which itself confesses that "The Richard III Society may, at first glance, appear to be an extraordinary phenomenon."
Yep. You said it. But hey! If it gives you pleasure, please do go on enjoying yourselves, and the full calendar of "events" scheduled for this summer. And don't worry, dear readers. Anyone can join.
Now to the other big news (it's not been a good week for burying bad news). Chris Huhne, as in disgrace of. While not exactly feeling sorry for him, I do think a prison sentence would be a bit steep. After all, many of the expenses-fiddling MPs got off far more lightly, and I think their crimes - stealing from tax-payers like us - were a lot worse.
But never mind, Chris. When you get out, you'll be paid a hefty advance for your memoirs (yes. Of course I'm jealous. I was a writer before you), and then you'll appear on I'm a Celebrity, and from then on your rise will be meteoric, I promise.
You read it here first..
