Great thoughts of Prince Philip

Prince Philip, it has been announced, will be retiring from public activities. Here are some of the things he has said at such activities in the past:


“I declare this thing open, whatever it is.” (on a visit to Canada in 1969)

 “Everybody was saying we must have more leisure. Now they are complaining they are unemployed.” (during the 1981 recession)

“How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to get them through the test?” (to a driving instructor in Oban, Scotland, during a 1995 walkabout)

“It looks as if it was put in by an Indian.” (pointing at an old-fashioned fusebox in a factory near Edinburgh in 1999)

 “Do you still throw spears at each other?” (in Australia in 2002, talking to a successful Indigenous Australian entrepreneur)

“I hope he breaks his bloody neck.” (when a photographer covering a royal visit to India fell out of a tree)

How about this thigh slapper?

"In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, to contribute something to solving overpopulation"

Not so funny that one. I wonder how the Guardian left that one out. Maybe it reveals a little too much about our elites true intentions?
