Mrs Grumble has been charged with preparing a letter to the royals.
We are asking if it’s too late to change the new baby’s name.
We loved the idea of one day being able to wave at Princess Charlotte.
But not any more, not on learning of the latest antics of one Charlotte Church.
The name “Charlotte” has been seriously tainted by her political capers.
She sounds more like a strident pinko.
Whatever, she has demonstrated her disdain for democratic government by brandishing a placard proclaiming she is ‘mad as hell’ during a protest against the Conservative government today.
Obviously she is a bad loser, according to the Daily Mail report..
Labour’s resounding loss at the polls was a triumph for the Tories that has caused Alf to look on Brits (the ones who live in England, anyway) with a new respect.
But Charlotte tweeted her devastation and claimed to have lost her faith in humanity when the Conservatives emerged victorious with a majority.
And today, the Welsh singer took her fury to the streets of her hometown Cardiff wielding a cardboard sign with the words ‘I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it any more’ painted on hapharzardly on it – a quote from 1976 movie Network.
The mother-of-two addressed a 200-strong crowd and said the government is one that ‘does not care about its people’ after yesterday claiming the public had handed over the reins of power to ‘bogey men’.
She said: ‘This is a government that does not care about its people and is only interested in cosying up to big business.’
She added: ‘We have already drawn up a list of areas where cuts could be made. All are controversial.
‘Abolishing statutory maternity pay, making it hard for people with illnesses to get help, making it impossible for those under 25 to receive virtually any benefits whatsoever.’
Hold on a mo’.
She is saying “we” (presumably her loony leftie mates) have drawn up a list.
That’s a neat stunt.
You draw up a list which you know is “controversial”.
And then you go and protest to stop it happening.
But let’s go on to hear more from this muppet.
Yesterday, as the Conservatives won a shock majority, she furiously claimed the public had ‘handed the reins to the bogey men’.
Stunned at Labour’s defeat, she said: ‘Devastated. #lostfaithinhumanity.
‘The politics of fear is the politics of control and we’ve given the reins to the bogey men. Feel like vomming my heart out… oh wait that would mean I could join the Conservative party.’
She then told one follower who challenged her: ‘Maybe now is not the best time to rub it in.’
Fair to say, the story is a bit different in this Welsh report.
Here, Charlotte is claiming the Govenrment hbas drawn up the list.
She is said to have taken to the streets to air her views on the “utterly intolerable” Conservative party at an anti-austerity rally in Cardiff.
Speaking at the rally, organised by Cardiff People’s Assembly , the 29-year-old said: “This week the UK masochistically condemned itself to five years of Tory rule.
“This government does not care about its people’
“Without the Liberal Democrats to centre them they have no restraints, nothing to stop them from destroying our welfare system, selling off our health service, and even making constraints upon democracy.
“Iain Duncan Smith’s Department for Work and Pensions has already drawn up a list of areas where cuts could be made. All are controversial.
“Abolishing statutory maternity pay, making it harder for those with chronic illness to get help, making it impossible for those under 25 to receive virtually any benefit whatsoever.
“This is a government that does not care about its people and is only interested in cosying up to big business.”
But the people – enough of them, anyway – have just voted to allow the Conservatives to do whatever they said they would do.
Enough of these people were Welsh to give the Tories 11 seats in Wales.
Cantankerous Charlotte is rejecting the vote.
Speaking ahead of the 90-minute demonstration Charlotte said: “Because the result was such a shock in the polls it made me feel disengaged with my fellow countrymen.
“I can’t understand where this support for austerity comes from.
“I was really gutted and angry. I don’t want to be patronising but I think a lot of people voted Conservative and Ukip because they believe them but all their stories about austerity recovery are just spin.
“There is so much data out there.
“They have spent more in the past four years than Labour did in 13 years. I think people don’t realise what is going on.
“They are encroaching on human rights and public freedom. A lot of people are good-natured and believe them.
“You can’t believe them because they are totally making us into downtrodden people. It’s awful.”
And so on…
“The Tories are going to systematically take apart what makes us Britain and what makes it a fair, lovely place to live.”
Alf would draw her attention to the overwhelming Scottish vote against Labour in favour of the pro-independence party.
He reckons this is much more likely to tear Britain apart than anything the Tories have done.
