Quotes of the day 10th April 2021

1) "He's the money man - except that we haven't got any money."

(The late HRH Prince Philip when George Osborne was being introduced as the Chancellor of the Exchequer to a bemused President of Indonesia, according to a tweet from GO yesterday.). 

Another example of the late Prince's humour: when  HRH Prince Philip and PM Jean Chrétien met for the first time, they spoke entirely in French.

Chrétien said: "You speak French very well for an Englishman".

Prince Philip replied:


2) "I am NOT an Englishman, and I've been speaking French since before you were born!"
