And their 15 minutes of fame!
I am referring to the car accident of Prince Philip. Quite frankly, it has turned into a witch hunt!
I hate tabloid journalism and that is why I don't buy a newspaper, or read much news online. I watch morning breakfast news and that is about it.
Would there be this much interest if it was Joe Public, I think not.
The woman in question had said at the time that she hadn't received an apology. Car insurance companies urge you not to admit liability so he was within his rights not to apologise. He has now done so, whether he wanted to or not. End of!
We all have accidents and knowing that stretch of road at that time of day, the sun is very low and often blinding. When the road is wet, the whole journey from bottom to top is a nightmare as the sun is bouncing off the road. The staggered junctions along that road are also difficult to manage safely. It is an area we occasionally drive to on our walking days if we are visiting Wolferton. We have to cross these junctions, both in the car and on foot, they are a nightmare.
Referring to the fact that he shouldn't still be driving at his age is ageism. If he was always having accidents due to poor driving skills, then that is a different matter.
Allowing his private letter to her to be published is yet another shot of 15 minutes of fame. Personally, I would be framing it!
