you are the god of the off topic bit
@ OCP , how old is your grandad mate?
Which one? If me Mum's dad, well he died when she was 9 and she was 90 before she shuffled off. My grandad died when I was 3 and my Dad died at 80 (ex-miner too). My gran died when I was 16, I've got an alibi though for that one, I was down in Wales with the school rugby team on tour.
So I know all about growing up, sniffs here, reaches for tissue to dab around eyes, without a grandad.
It would seem that it is OK to be offended if you are a royalist by anti-royalists but not OK to be offended by royalty and the concept of it.
What does anti ageist mean? You're against people who are ageist surely, so we can't be the anti ageists, you are greenstiles, aren't you?
Edit for a note to al, first time I've participated in one of your threads and I've thoroughly enjoyed it.
