This COP26 Conference in Glasgow has hilarious possibilities.
I just heard Prince Charles say: "Quite literally, it is the last chance saloon."
Exquisite! Such gems adequately justify all the expense of having a Royal Family! One wonders what confused kaleidoscopic images were dancing round in the poor poppet's mind when he drafted that. At least, it must prove that (unlike Good Catholic I'm Irish Biden) he does write his own speeches.
His sister, Princess Anne, also writes her own speeches. I infer this from the fact that she once came to give a 'lecture' at the college I taught in, and it was totally captivating. Nobody, clearly, had ever explained to her that a sentence should contain a main verb!
Perhaps some readers employ the same dodge to stay awake as I do when forced to listen to twaddle: trying to render it simultaneously into Latin. No need for such contrivances when the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha-Battenberg get up onto their haunches.
I earnestly entreat exhort and beg readers to communicate via my thread the funniest bits they hear from the COP26.
With so many fully qualified windbags in the same place at the same time ...
(That's an aposiopesis.)
