All the television stations will by playing obituaries that have been recorded months or even years ago.

I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

Try Al Jazeera. There's an interesting opinion piece escoriating him and the BBC, etc.

That's always the case with high level royalty. When Emperor Hirohito died in 1989, all the public and commercial channels played obits all day, an unprecedented event in Japanese television.

One of the greatest Stand Up comedians of our era. RIP


“I would like to go to Russia very much, although the bastards murdered half my family," at a very heated period of history in 1967.

"You look like you're ready for bed!" he told the President of Nigeria in 2003, who was dressed in traditional robes.

"What do you gargle with? Pebbles?" he told singer Tom Jones at the 1969 Royal Variety Performance.

"You can't have been here that long — you haven't got a pot belly," he told a British tourist during a visit to Budapest in 1993.

"Aren't most of you descended from pirates?," he enquired to an islander while in the Cayman Islands in 1994.

"How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to pass the test?" he asked a Scottish driving instructor in 1995.

"You managed not to get eaten then?" the Prince asked a British student who had been trekking in Papua New Guinea, in 1998.

"Where's the Southern Comfort?" he said on receipt of a basket of Southern goods from the U.S. ambassador in London, in 1999.

"You could do with losing a little bit of weight," he told 13-year-old Andrew Adams, after hearing he wanted to become an astronaut while visiting a science museum in 2001.

"So who's on drugs here?... He looks as if he's on drugs," he said of a 14-year-old boy while at a Bangladeshi youth club in 2002.

"That's a nice tie ... Do you have any knickers in that material?" he asked Annabel Goldie, the Scottish Conservative leader, when welcoming Benedict XVI to Edinburgh in 2010.

"Just take the fucking picture!" he told a photographer, during a Battle of Britain event in 2015.

Prince Philip allegedly wrote scripts for the British boys' comic, "Roy of the Rovers", in the 1950s. He must have used a pseudonym.

I heard that story, but it was Una Holder who wrote them for Noddy Stubbs as payment for him making her a coffee table out of glass turds or something like that. :?

He was born in Greece, though. And his grandfather was King of Greece. Doesn't make it partially Greek?
It's a great nickname though: Sammy the Bull, Phil The Greek, Thomas The Toupee Bilotti, etc.
