Just seen an advert on Sky...

"Do you suffer from Tinutus.......then please listen carefully". !!!!

From the RNID, now rebranded by some utter twonk as 'Action on hearing loss' .

Can you imagine the meeting when they decided that to have Royal patronage in this modern world was somehow 'not relevant' and the type of people in the room?

Unless, of course they were another 'charity' with a few skeletons in the cupboard and had to change their name ?

Is royal patronage relevant in the modern world then?

The new name is more inclusive as it includes people with partial hearing loss, and 'action' sounds far better than 'institute'.

I'm with the twonks.

Tend to agree about royal patronage. Maybe it's also the case that people tend to switch off a bit nowadays as soon as they realise it's a charity thing...after endless adverts and appeals on the TV. Ultimately, the important thing isn't maintaining traditions but raising as much money and awareness as possible. And that ought to be measurable.

Is royal patronage relevant....I'd say so but it seems everything is up for grabs in the modern UK?

The main point was the 'do you suffer from ..... not the bst phrasing ever :)

TBF, ambivalence about all things royal for a large section of the public is pretty long standing.

Yes, that's a fair point. The 'focus group' dropped a b****** on that bit! :lol:

Women who wear short skirts or dresses and spend every waking moment pulling the hem down so they don't show off their knickers.
If it's that short you are worrying about your undies showing, buy a longer f****** skirt!

The best thing I did was leaving my last place where the Chicago based Global Network Manager would regularly schedule meetings in afternoons - expecting a full house, including the poor Indian sap who had to delay going to bed to dial into it.

His other favourite was calling you out of hours when not even on-call because you didn't respond to an email at 9-11pm.

Get t' ****.
