Link doesn't work?

TheCraicDealer Wed 22-Aug-12 13:43:08

Here you go, DM link as requested grin

I see he's going for tea and biscuits with his superior....but without the tea and biscuits.

That's probably me not reading the DM often enough... Couldn't find it on my DM iPad app.

It's also been a new item on the BBC this lunchtime, although presumably without photos! I was in the next room so only heard the story.

It was on my Google gadget news on my desktop. Maybe the media have been asked to hush it?

The Telegraph has about 5 stories on the issue

Yummymummyyobe1 Wed 22-Aug-12 13:45:17

Because it is either a fake story or if it isn't then the British Press have more sense then to rely on such trivial stories. Although I suppose the Sun might have run with it, the tat they peddle.

A warning would have been nice for those of us who are not allowed to look at that kind of stuff on our work computers. Yeah cheers for that. You've just made my day a whole heap better for the c* I'll get into now. Thanks.

If they've been asked to hush it, it's not working very well.

I do feel sorry for him for the intrustion.

However, I fail to come up with sympathy over him needing a holiday after his olympic duties (that would be all that watching of things that most of the country would have killed to get tickets for then)

you're a grown up Ilovesunflowers andit's hardly the OPs fault that you choose to a)MN and b) click a link without looking down to the little bar at the bottom of the screen that tells you where it leads, at work.

I suppose because they are somewhat dependent on the royals for future stories and they don't want to antagonise them.

It's covered in great detail on the Guido Fawkes web site. Also there are several articles on it on the Telegraph blog site.

It is not news.... who gives a monkey's

Ithinkitsjustme Wed 22-Aug-12 14:02:47

It's not newsworthy and didn't the British press agree to allow the 2 princes their privacy after Diana died?

SlightlySuperiorPeasant Wed 22-Aug-12 14:07:46

Who really cares? 'Man in his 20's plays shocking game' is a bit Victorian.

BananaramaLlama Wed 22-Aug-12 14:12:40

It was just on the lunchtime news on radio 4. Not really being hushed up.

SaskiaRembrandtWasFramed Wed 22-Aug-12 14:14:38

Group of young people have fun on holiday shocker!

Seriously, why is this even news?

ChunkyPickle Wed 22-Aug-12 14:23:41

Young male gets drunk and naked shock...

Hang-on. No, that isn't a shock at all..

Frontpaw Wed 22-Aug-12 14:25:11

So. Is he a natural redhead then?

FartyMcTarty Wed 22-Aug-12 14:27:24

Haha Ilovesunflowers, that is entirely your own fault and something I remember doing all to well grin

chandellina Wed 22-Aug-12 14:30:16

I don't see this as a national scandal, who really cares?
