    Why is there so much coverage on the royal wedding?

    Perhaps it's because for a change it's about something nice happening to nice people.

    There is a natural feel good factor that surrounds weddings, and Royal Weddings seem to capture that and spread the nice warm feeling around the World.

    But don't worry about it.... I'm sure half the World's Media attention is only there hoping that something nasty will happen so they have something for their front pages over the weekend.


    By Monday all will be over and the world can get back to reality once more covering the land in Blood and Body Bags.

    Its all about making money, advertisers and the media need the latest gossip to keep the payroll running. The more viewers they can get the more money they can make from advertisers.

    And it helps that they are a cute couple.

    It is to keep us distracted from what is really going on in the world. It is the old bait and switch. By having spectacle for us to get lost in, it prevents us from realizing how much we are being screwed.

    ... Because William is highly likely to be King one day...
    It is hard to evade though and can become boring.

    A "royal wedding," doesn't it make you want to puke?

    Its a disgrace.

    Do you see people camping out days before waiting to get a good spot of soldiers home coming parades?

    NO!!!

    But people camp out to cheer on people they dont know, people that never help them, people that mean nothing to them, people that make no difference in the world or your world to benefit you or society.

    People make me sick, makes me ashamed to be British.
