Matthew Steeples shares his views on the ‘outrage’ against Friday’s royal wedding and ‘death by Pret’
People are very angry at the moment: They’re angry about Brexit and they’re angry about their sex lives, they’re angry about the cost of living in London and the price of milk. People are also very angry about the death of two people at Pret and Friday’s wedding of Princess ‘WhoGenie?’ (as they’re rather nastily now calling her) and Jack Brooksbank.
Outrage, it seems, is everywhere and whilst the cost of security at the Windsor wedding should frankly be footed by the Duchess of York and her erstwhile husband, ‘Air Miles Andy,’ the nation should jolly well embrace the occasion and celebrate. Aside from ITV being the only channel willing to screen the joyous nuptials, it isn’t too late for Theresa May to do the decent thing: Why doesn’t she offer the moaners a public holiday and let them get thoroughly sloshed?
Elsewhere, people continue to complain about Pret. Everyday article after article and newscaster after newscaster berates the chain over the most unfortunate death of two customers. Yes, it’s sad and yes it’s horrible but the truth of the matter is this: Pret has provided fine food to its customers for many a year and they also do something spectacular – they look after the most unfortunate people in our society, the homeless.
