Wanna buya Peter Oborne nuddy calendar?

Clutching a lace hanky and smelling salts, Peter Oborne launches in to Prince Harry on the basis that he shouldn't be having all this FUN with a willing young woman in case it fuels the fires of Republicanism.

Really? There has been comment about what we pay for the Prince, but then there would be anyway even if Harry was a cross between Cliff Richard and Mother Theresa. Even the staunchest anti-monarchist I know doesn't think that a young man doing something legal with a consenting adult in the privacy of his own hotel room should be pilloried because a scumbag took photos they should not have.

But since they did, let's be clear: this is a PR triumph.

The overwhelming response has been "Yaaaayyy, go for it Hazza" with a muttered side order of "Lucky sod, he even photographs well".  See our Prince? That one, the one who has plenty of blood in his veins, enough to raise a flagpole, well, that's how a Tudor prince is supposed to look. That's how we like 'em, as if they can kiss and fight and have a go at a serenade.

Of course, this would look saddo if he were still playing strip billiards in ten years time and begun to look as if his skin needed ironing, and the pretty girls exchanged for hanging about with creepy-looking ladyboys the way his great-uncle went over  the late Wallis Simpson, so he shouldn't make a life-long habit of it.

But right now the wisdom of Max Bialystock applies:  When you  got it, baby, flaunt it.

He is nicely put together. Easy on the eye.

Makes one proud to see him with all those bikini babes.

'Once more down to the beach dear friends once more;
And close the pool and off to bed
We stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this discharge,


'Good for Harry, England, and Saint George!'

Heh! It's nice when something like this has a totally unexpected (well, unexpected by the likes of Oborne, anyway) result... :)

Yes, Lilith. I think he ought to do the Help for Heroes calendar 2013. At least that way his comrades would get the benefit of it.

It is icky the way he's been spied on and sold-out.

Bravo Bill Quango. I hope you are going to brighten up Fawkes' site with that one as well as the other hilarious one about Julian Assange.

Yes indeed WOAR. Brilliant idea.! I hope his CO thinks of that too.
