PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE SUE TABLOID/PRINCE HARRY DEFENDING HIS WIFE/THE ONLY HONOURABLE THING TO DO!

Dear Readers,
Here I am again, travelling with you to the present British royalty, here my favourite royal couple, Prince Harry [grandson of the reigning Queen Elizabeth and son of the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, born Diana Frances Spencer, daughter of John Spencer, 8th Earl of Spencer]
I followed their wedding and the birth of their newborn son, Lord Archie![making the joke, that Cheddar Man at last had won, HAHAHAHAHAHA]
https://www.astridessed.nl/prince-harry-and-his-bride-meghan-markle-congratulations-to-the-duke-and-duchess-of-sussex/

I cheered them on and watched with angriness the despicable smearing campaign against the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, while I draw comparisons between the hate campaign against her late mother in law, Princess Diana, leading to her death, also having watched the terrible impact that must have had on her young sons, Princes William and Harry, Meghan Markle’s husband.
For a part this smearing campaign against Meghan Markle resembles that of her mother in law, instigated by creatures, who are as well jealous of the position of royal persons and as well giving them a status, which is not from this time anymore.For it is centuries ago, Kings and Queens were the Lord’s anointed and their family members near half gods.
Those times are over.
So on one hand it is simply malicious jalousy and making royal persons far more important than they really are in this time, which costed Princess Diana her life.Besides Princess of Wales, she was a brave woman, a participator in the battle against landmines and therefore she has earned my great respect! [1]But on the other hand, and it has to be said, much smearing stems from the fact, that Meghan Markle is black.Let’s face that!
I give but one, ugly, exampleTHIS NEWMESSAGE:

STATEMENT ASTRID ESSED ABOUT PRINCE HARRY’S ACTIONS TO DEFEND HIS WIFE:

IN DUTCH, ON FACEBOOK PAGE OF NEWSPAPER NU.NL

Astrid Essed PRINCE HARRY HEEFT GELIJK!
Hij heeft met eigen ogen kunnen zien, waarnemen en uiterst pijnlijk ervaren, wat het betekent, als papparazzi en consorten ieder normaal fatsoen uit het oog verliezen en maar losgaan op een persoon, tegen wie ze enerzijds kinnesinne hebben en anderszijds kennelijk toch ”ophemelen” en een status toedichten, die uit de tijd is.
Met als consequentie, dat ieder middel, tot het opjagen van mensen toe, geoorloofd lijkt.
Het heeft geleid tot de dood van Prins Harry’s moeder, Prinses Diana.
Misschien wel de verwoestendste ervaring, die een kind in de tienerleeftijd kan overkomen en dan zo onnodig!
Een vrouw, die niet alleen ex Prinses van Wales was, maar haar sporen heeft verdiend in de strijd tegen landmijnen, wat weinigen nu nog noemen.
En nu moet hij aanzien, dat dezelfde misselijke campagne zich herhaalt tegen zijn vrouw en moeder van zijn pasgeboren zoon, Meghan Markle, de hertogin van Sussex!
Ik kan het niet bewijzen [hoewel bepaalde misselijke opmerkingen wel in die richting gingen en gaan], maar een belangrijke reden is volgens mij het feit, dat zij zwart is.
In ieder geval speelt dat mee.
Hoe dan ook, het is een schandaal op zich en de Prins heeft gelijk, dat hij er zoooooo klaar mee is en nu stappen onderneemt!

TRANSLATED IN ENGLISH

PRINCE HARRY IS RIGHT!He has seen with his own eyes, observe, and experienced as utterly painful, what it means, when papparazzi and their gang lose every trace of normal decency and attack a person, of whom they are jalous on one hand and on theother hand give a half divine status, which is no longer from this time.With as a consequence, that every means, even hunting people, seems to be permitted.It led to the death of Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana.Maybe the most destructive and devastating experience that can happen to a child during teenage period and so unnecessary!A woman, who was not only Princess of Wales, bujt has made her contribution in the fight gainst landmines, remembered by few.And now he [Prince Harry] must live to see the day, that this disgusting smear campaign repeats itself against his wife and mother of his newborn son, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex!I can’t prove it fully [although certain nasty remarks and newsmessages show in that direction], but another important reason for this smearing campaign is the fact, that she is black.In each case, it is part of this smearing campaign!True or not, in each case it is a scandal and the Prince is right, that he has enough of it and taking steps now!https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/oct/02/put-simply-its-bullying-prince-harrys-full-statement-on-the-media

BBCDANNY BAKER FIRED BY BBC OVER ROYAL BABY CHIMP TWEET9 MAY 2019
https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-48212693

TEXT

The BBC has sacked Danny Baker, saying he showed a “serious error of judgement” over his tweet about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s baby.

The tweet, which he later deleted but which has been circulated on social media, showed an image of a couple holding hands with a chimpanzee dressed in clothes with the caption: “Royal Baby leaves hospital”.

The BBC 5 Live presenter was accused of mocking the duchess’s racial heritage.

Baker claimed it was a “stupid gag”.

The 61-year-old presented a Saturday morning show on the network.

The corporation said Baker’s tweet “goes against the values we as a station aim to embody”.

It added: “Danny’s a brilliant broadcaster but will no longer be presenting a weekly show with us.”

His comment about red sauce references the Sausage Sandwich Game from his 5 Live show, in which listeners choose what type of sauce a celebrity would choose to eat.

After tweeting an apology, in which he called the tweet a “stupid unthinking gag pic”, Baker said the BBC’s decision “was a masterclass of pompous faux-gravity”.

“[It] took a tone that said I actually meant that ridiculous tweet and the BBC must uphold blah blah blah,” he added. “Literally threw me under the bus. Could hear the suits’ knees knocking.”

Harry and Meghan, whose mother Doria Ragland is African American, revealed on Wednesday their new son was named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

After the initial backlash on social media on Wednesday, Baker said: “Sorry my gag pic of the little fella in the posh outfit has whipped some up. Never occurred to me because, well, mind not diseased.

‘Enormous mistake’

“Soon as those good enough to point out its possible connotations got in touch, down it came. And that’s it.”

In a later tweet, he added: “Would have used same stupid pic for any other Royal birth or Boris Johnson kid or even one of my own. It’s a funny image. (Though not of course in that context.) Enormous mistake, for sure. Grotesque.

“Anyway, here’s to ya Archie, Sorry mate.”Speaking to reporters outside his home, he said of the tweet: “Ill advised, ill thought-out and stupid, but racist? No, I’m aware how delicate that imagery is.”

Broadcaster Scarlette Douglas, who works on 5 Live podcast The Sista Collective and The One Show, told the BBC: “I think somebody told him, ‘What you’ve tweeted was incorrect, so you should maybe say something or take it down.’

“Yes, OK, he took it down, but his apology for me wasn’t really an apology. I don’t think it’s right and I think subsequently what’s happened is correct.”

Ayesha Hazarika, a commentator and former adviser to the Labour Party, told 5 Live she was “genuinely gobsmacked” by the tweet.

“I couldn’t believe it,” she said. “I thought it was a joke at first. I thought it was a spoof. It was so crass. What was going through his head?

“You can’t just say sorry and then carry on like it’s business as usual. When you have an incredibly important platform like he does, you do have to think about what you do and the signals that it sends out.”

Prompt action

Baker must have been aware of recent incidences of racism at football matches and the resulting outcry, Ms Hazarika added.

Linda Bellos, former chairwoman of the Institute of Equality and Diversity Professionals, echoed those remarks. saying: “A lot of black players are complaining about noises being made to them. He knows this stuff,” she told Radio 4.

His tweet was “foolish”, she said, adding: “Never mind that it’s royalty.”The things that are happening to black children up and down the country are not enhanced by his words and I’m glad that prompt action has been taken, and let’s hope we have come thoughtful dialogue and learning from this.”

Baker’s Saturday Morning show on BBC Radio 5 Live won him a Sony Gold award for Speech Radio Personality of the Year in 2011, 2012 and 2014 and a Gold Award for entertainment show of the year in 2013.

His irrepressible style made him one of the most popular radio presenters of his generation and saw him described by one writer as the “ultimate geezer”.

Baker was also a successful magazine journalist, scriptwriter and TV documentary maker.

He wrote a number of TV shows including Pets Win Prizes and Win, Lose or Draw and, in 1990, The Game, a series about an amateur soccer team in east London.

A stint at BBC London station GLR in the late ’80s saw him strike up an enduring friendship with fellow broadcaster Chris Evans, and Baker would later write scripts for the Channel 4 show TFI Friday, which Evans hosted.

Controversial comments

It’s the second time Baker has been axed by 5 Live and is the third time he has left the BBC.

In 1997, he was fired for encouraging football fans to make a referee’s life hell after the official had awarded a controversial penalty in an FA Cup tie.

He later claimed he had never incited fans to attack the referee, only that he would have understood if they had.

In 2012, two weeks before he was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame, he was was back in the news after an on-air rant in which he resigned and branded his bosses at BBC London “pinheaded weasels“. The outburst came after Baker had been asked to move from a weekday programme to a weekend.In 2016, Baker took part on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here but was the first person to be voted off in the series.

SEE NOW THE STATEMENT OF PRINCE HARRY ON THE MEDIA

PRINCE HARRY’S FULL STATEMENT ON THE MEDIA

PUT SIMPLY, IT IS BULLYING: ”PRINCE HARRY’S FULL STATEMENT ON THE MEDIA
https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/oct/02/put-simply-its-bullying-prince-harrys-full-statement-on-the-media

As a couple, we believe in media freedom and objective, truthful reporting. We regard it as a cornerstone of democracy and in the current state of the world – on every level – we have never needed responsible media more.

Unfortunately, my wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences – a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son.

There is a human cost to this relentless propaganda, specifically when it is knowingly false and malicious, and though we have continued to put on a brave face – as so many of you can relate to – I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been. Because in today’s digital age, press fabrications are repurposed as truth across the globe. One day’s coverage is no longer tomorrow’s chip-paper.

Up to now, we have been unable to correct the continual misrepresentations – something that these select media outlets have been aware of and have therefore exploited on a daily and sometimes hourly basis.

It is for this reason we are taking legal action, a process that has been many months in the making. The positive coverage of the past week from these same publications exposes the double standards of this specific press pack that has vilified her almost daily for the past nine months; they have been able to create lie after lie at her expense simply because she has not been visible while on maternity leave. She is the same woman she was a year ago on our wedding day, just as she is the same woman you’ve seen on this Africa tour.

For these select media this is a game, and one that we have been unwilling to play from the start. I have been a silent witness to her private suffering for too long. To stand back and do nothing would be contrary to everything we believe in.

This particular legal action hinges on one incident in a long and disturbing pattern of behaviour by British tabloid media. The contents of a private letter were published unlawfully in an intentionally destructive manner to manipulate you, the reader, and further the divisive agenda of the media group in question. In addition to their unlawful publication of this private document, they purposely misled you by strategically omitting select paragraphs, specific sentences, and even singular words to mask the lies they had perpetuated for over a year.

There comes a point when the only thing to do is to stand up to this behaviour, because it destroys people and destroys lives. Put simply, it is bullying, which scares and silences people. We all know this isn’t acceptable, at any level. We won’t and can’t believe in a world where there is no accountability for this.

Though this action may not be the safe one, it is the right one. Because my deepest fear is history repeating itself. I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.

We thank you, the public, for your continued support. It is hugely appreciated. Although it may not seem like it, we really need it.

THOMAS OF LANCASTER, REBEL COUSIN OF KING EDWARD II

/FROM WARLORD TO SAINT

INTRODUCTION:

Readers,
This is a fascinating story about
Thomas of Lancaster and the persons
and events that played an important part in his
life in a very turbulent time.
But like
all fascinating stories, it is not told
in two minutes. It is a real longread.
My advice to my you:
READ IT LIKE A BOOK!
Don’t read all chapters at one time,
because you will be overwhelmed, unless
you are totally fascinated.

Or when you are pressed with time, with time, read the Epilogue,

which gives my final opinion about Thomas of Lancaster and a
summary of this fascinating story….

To understand the political situation
in the early fourteenth century, especially
chapter one, four and five are important.
Chapters six describes the outbreak of the
war between Thomas and his cousin
the King, the chapters seven and eight the
dramatic end.
Chapters nine and ten, what happened
thereafter.

And I end with the Epilogue, giving my final opinion
about the life and activitities of Thomas of Lancaster.
Read all the Chapters with care and attention and you
will enter the Medieval world…..

[EdwardthesecondBlogspot]/Edward II’s coronation oath, 25 February 1308

A man in half figure with short, curly hair and a hint of beard is facing left. He wears a coronet and holds a sceptre in his right hand. He has a blue robe over a red tunic, and his hands are covered by white, embroidered gloves. His left hand seems to be pointing left, to something outside the picture.

Dear Readers,

A silly remark of author and historian
Kathryn Warner [EdwardthesecondBlogspot]
gives me the opportunity to take
you on a travel to the past.
I have done it before.
To the Medieval English period of dynastic struggle,
the Wars of the Roses [1455-1485], as some remarks about the Medieval
King Edward II, whose tragic and strong friendship for men, eventually
led to his downfall [1284-1327, ruled England from 1307 until 1327]

But this time I travel with you to Moorish ruled Spain in the Middle Ages.
Come with me……….
