    I stopped reading after I read the Sun newspaper.
    To add insult to injury, this article was on the BBC's most read....

    Oh....:eek:

    I still don't understand why I should be having a party, it's not like somebody I know is getting married is it?

    I guess its a sense of pride or joy seeing a couple, who earn more in a day than you or me ever will in a lifetime, get married on live on TV.

    An event to certainly enjoy and celebrate about....

    Urgh, this wedding is ruining my life. Ever since I started hearing about it, I have been in deep depression and have already attempted suicide once in the past week. The thought of being encouraged to have a street party and have a day off work is absolutely sickening. What if someone makes a cheese and onion quiche? I hate cheese and onion quiche! I'm scared even the smell of it will make me jump off the nearest bridge. I can't socialise with the people down my street. Every single one of them is either morbidly obese on the verge of death, in a gang or will try to rape me.

    Are the people who don't give a damn about the wedding going to work through the public holiday?


    Rather hypocritical....
    It's going to be a normal day for me, If there is work to do then I'll do it, I am not the sort off person who moans on working Christmas and new years eve or in this case a ''public holiday''

    Of course he wants people to throw street parties, any excuse to distract from the mess he's making of this country...
    What do you mean? Labour beat him to it..


    However, I could not give a flying f*ck about the royal wedding. It would be nice for all this red tape to cut out, period. Not just for some sham of a wedding.

    Are you implying that only right-wing Tories support the monarchy/are going to celebrate the royal wedding?

    It isn't a public holiday up here (at least in my area) I would happily work anyway, as it's one of our last days of school before exam leave . .

    Quite possibly. I'm aware of a friend whose Muslim colleague works through Christmas and instead takes a holiday on a Muslim festival. It makes perfect sense.

    Your contradiction amuses me. You criticize that the future head of state's wedding should be talked about quite a bit in the media, but you are happy to use it as an excuse to take a holiday from your work.


    I have more respect for hasin than I do for you cotton. I disagree with him (I'm quite looking forward to the wedding), but at least he at least has the guts to stand by his belief.
    Wait, what? First, that's the first comment I made in the thread; I never actually expressed my own feelings about the wedding or it's media attention. And guts to stand by his belief? What on earth are you talking about? I never initiated anything whereby 'standing by my belief' would be necessary. I don't think I'm too upset at losing respect from someone who has jumped to so many conclusions by such a little comment.

    Secondly, yes, people do work on Christmas, well done. My point was that, these days have been made public holidays; holidays for the public, not just those who agree or believe in the origin of the holiday. Sometimes, being able to have a day off work is nice for people. Another point i would like to add - my sister, for example, would be more than happy to work on the royal wedding day, but there are simply no available shifts on the day. I, for example, would be more than happy to work on the royal wedding day, but I cannot get a job, full stop. The argument of 'don't like it, get a job!' ignores a spectrum of circumstances.

    Am I the only one that doesn't give a **** about David Cameron or the royal wedding? The way people are going on it's the Queen marrying. Ok William is heir to the throne but he may die before he gets his aloe-veraed mitts on the crown anyway. As for Kate Middleton she's a nobody afaic. Will always be a pretender to Lady Di.

    Indeed, which is why you shouldn't make it, or incorrectly state that I did.


    I did not. What I said was I personally feel it's hypocritical to take the stance of "I don't like this Royal Wedding, but I'll happily take the holiday that comes with it".
    Indeed, I was referring to the guy's statement I initially quoted.

    What would be hypocritical is if someone said 'I don't like this royal wedding, but I'll happily celebrate it with my family and friends whilst serving food on commemorative royal wedding plate'. A day off is a day off, and some people are happy to just accept a day off, regardless of the meaning of it.

    Also I think the estimated that the estimated 2bn people watching is a huge exageration! Ok yes a lot of people in the uk will watch but that's about it.

    Of all the things I might choose to celebrate, the wedding of two people who I know nothing about sits pretty much at the bottom of the list.

    I for one, am sure that I will have something better to be doing.
