    Small boy dresses as second class human in impractical clothes that will hamper movement and make them into object of desire with overtones of unrealistic expectations due to misfortune of high birth.
    The man was right to rebuke the child.
    Only a fool would want to be a princess.

    Oh, we sell this concept to our young females do we? What the?

    Meghan Markle likes being a princess... if she can then we all can!

    I want to marry Prince Harry [oh I made a rhyme]

    Only those who wallow in victimhood think that.

    Clearly, you think women the weaker sex, despite being a bit potty mouthed.

    That deserves a slow hand-clap. Nice one.

    Only just seen the video and agree it's not what it's made out to be. He was joking around and I don't think he was shaming his nephew. Maybe the child's parents should have requested their young son not be put on twitter. I don't know why some people put every detail of their lives on social media, whether they are famous or not.

    I don't see why people have to apologise for things they say just because others don't like it. The apologies are usually insincere anyway. I would rather people are free to express their opinions and I am free to agree or disagree with them.

    Qu'elle surprise...


    Well I do hope everyone else who subverts the swear filter gets reported. Plenty do.

    I do agree. Hamilton's apology reeks of being ordered by sponsors and following a standard template. You wonder if those seriously opposed to what he said get more satisfaction from that, the forced apology, than knowing deep down he does not mean a word of it.

    Hamilton lives in a macho word of real danger and adrenaline rush, with the default ability to get any woman he wants and whenever he wants.


    To be shocked or offended he thinks boys should be a certain way is the problem for me.

    That he then must be lynched for saying it is a real problem as I did think the days of thought policing and phony outrage were pretty much behind us.

    Hamilton failed here I think as he had a wonderful opportunity to say while not wanting to cause offence that's how he feels and so tough.
