  1. Threaten to tell their mums. Since they would all undoubtedly bee suvvern shandy swilling poofdahs, they would run off scared. Seemples 🙂

  2. I would do what I have become used to doing in my job…look; make a split second judgement about whether it would be worth personally saying something, and if not, probably call the police.
    People are conditioned to assume the worst, but in my experience, often such situations can be diffused, at least temporarily.

  3. Video the punch up on my phone then send it to “You’ve been framed”

    Sorry, Ferret. but they would be liquored up on proper English ale, not the mixture of gravy browning and methanol known as Necwie Broon!

  5. Wow, Julie. Powerful question; I am afraid I completely missed the point when I first read your post.At the risk of re igniting the fire, I suppose you are wondering whether the royals are simply the descendants of a bunch of thugs who got lucky.

  6. Oh God, leave it out!

    PS If your side won I would make sure there was a ‘dish of lamphreys’ to hand!!!

    However, that turns out not to be the case.

  8. Bravo, as a person who didn’t take history O Level, please explain how that isn’t the case?

    I wouldn’t use the word ‘thugs’ as the leaders were clearly well educated for the time, but is it not the case that the royal family then as now are only so due to testosterone chest beating mods and rockers fights? Not trying to provoke, or irritate, or even offend, just genuinely asking 😀

  9. Cuprum, Boadicea’s posts will help. Since you missed O level history, you also probably missed the mnemonic that applies: No Plan Like Yours To Study History Wisely Norman, Plantaganet, Lancaster, York, Tudor, Stuart, Hanover, Windsor. Of course, that leaves out the Blois, Anjou, Orange and Saxe-Coburg Gotha as the Windsors were before the Great War, because it is a way to remember the dynasties.
