On Monday night we had two spoilt thirtysomething millionaires whining to a multi-millionaire who was making nine million dollars out of the job. ITV paid a million pounds for the rights, and advertisers paid a lot of money for the commercial breaks.
Oprah Winfrey made a big thing of the fact that they hadn’t been paid as her grand opening fanfare.
Harry and Meghan were working for Oprah.
In exchange for Harry’s soul, she sold Meghan instant recognition on American TV. That’s worth billions. Meghan can milk that only by prolonging her campaign against the Royal Family – and us, whatever our skin tint – for as long as possible. That’s why there’s another 90 minutes of recording that so far we have been spared.
To set this in proportion, Ed Hillary and Tensing had to climb Mount Everest for global recognition and Neil Armstrong had to set foot on the moon.
I leave you to work out what Meghan did – but the driving force is making as much money as possible.
So we’re all racists, Meghan. That’s not for me to say, so I checked what the Jamaican media reckoned. Jamaica has some of the best media on the planet. I found a very good article in the Jamaican Observer online edition.
Meghan is going to cause every Commonwealth Prime Minister as much trouble as she can, starting with Canada and the Caribbean islands.
I spent three years as director of the British Information Services across Canada. I lived through the Constitution Repatriation master-minded by Justin Trudeau’s father, Pierre – one of the smartest politicians of the last century. One of the results of that debate was that the Queen’s position in Canada was strengthened. There has to be a unanimous vote of every province and territory to get rid of the Queen as head of state.
This soap opera is all about money and maybe the Democratic party. Hillary’s rants and Joe’s press office may be following a plan drawn up by Meghan’s PR team. Supporters pop like clockwork. The complaint to ITV about Piers Morgan is handled by them, no doubt, but Meghan openly takes a keen interest. I think the strategy is to save the unseen hour and a half of video for House and Senate and Presidential elections. Why did Hillary Clinton join in the chorus of support for Meghan? Is it beyond the bounds of possibility that the duchess has ambitions to be on Team Chelsea for President, perhaps even as her running mate?
Do the Commonwealth countries really want Meghan dragging us into US elections for the rest of her life? After serving in Pakistan, Cyprus, Canada and Jamaica, I would say definitely not.
Democrats like Hillary and Joe Biden – and even Obama – don’t want Britain to be a member of a group that includes India, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, the West Indies, Pacific islands and nearly half of Africa. Personally, I think Democrats such as Hillary and Joe and Obama let their emotions get the better of them. They may not like us but America is challenged by China. The Commonwealth doesn’t need us to thrive but they like us on the team. We are the largest and only club in the world of all races and religions that can thwart the greed and ambitions of China.
The Queen wants to extend an olive branch to Harry. He isn’t in control of events. Nor is Meghan any longer. You are, Boris. Unless you want our relationships with the Commonwealth to become the plaything for a faction in the Democratic Party, handy for scooping up woke votes, urge the Queen – in the nicest possible way – to sack them both. Every newspaper in my home county of Sussex wants them stripped of our name. I support any petition that requests that the name of Sussex is no longer used to further a spiteful campaign against the Queen and Kate.
If you think you can sit on the fence, Boris, you really will damage our relationship with the Commonwealth. You’ll do more harm than the FCO did by reducing our effort from a whole Department of State to a backwater department.
This is strategic, Boris, with a big S.
