New Bentley for the Queen. - Tomo
We are all glad to hear it: jolly good show.

Only, this site is sort of related to the Daily Telegraph, not any tabloid, and consequently some of us distinctly regret to see Her Majesty referred to as "Liz".

I am sure this arose from thoughtlessness rather than malice, but could we please avoid such infelicities another time?

Merry Christmas (or whatever your festival may be) and a Happy New Year (whenever you may celebrate that one).

Best regards to everyone.

Sorry, Tomo. This is MY SITE, not The Telegraph's, and referring to Elizabeth II as "Liz" is in no way malicious. Cheeky, maybe, but not malicious.

Typical!
Liz gets a bentley for Christmas, and all I'll probably get is a set of handkerchiefs!
Almost time to wrap it up for the year.
Hopefully everybody will have a very festive, and safe holiday season.
My best wishes to all the backroomers.
As Tiny Tim says: "A Merry Christmas, one and all!"
(and as Martyn BRM says: "Bah, Humbug!")

Brenda (as in Private Eye, I think) sounds better .. also, it alliterates with Bentley
Re: New Bentley for the Queen. - Tomo
Firstly, I would never have heard of the site (would you prefer I had not?), and neither I imagine would others, but for the Telegraph.

Secondly, where does being cheeky to the Queen stop, and lese-majesty start?

I thought Tomo was joking. He obviously isn't.

They're all Greek, German or whatever anyway.......

So if the Queen, being of German descent, gets a (German owned ) Bentley, what would Phil get ?

"Yaris" sounds pretty Greek, doesn't it? :)

Ha! You don't like Her Majesty referred to as Liz, but quite happy to use insulting phrases about Her Majesty's Constabulary.

Gotcha!
