-Meghan and Harry baptizing their daughter with the title “Princess” which she would have had anyway seeing as she’s a granddaughter of a king?? Royalty is an opt-out system and she’s too young to opt-out. WHY is this news.
-Gary Lineker calling the government out for using Nazi-like rhetoric. There’s calls to get him fired from his job at the BBC, because now the Daily Mail believes in cancel culture all of a sudden, what a surprise.
Let’s start off the New Year with some good news. This is Thor the Walrus. It is a wandering walrus who took a break on the shore of a city in England. That city was so adamant about protecting Thor that they cancelled their fireworks for New Years to not frighten it. Thor is happy and well.
“Ruby Sunday” is a fabulous name for a companion. I have literally never seen Millie Gibson in anything before so I look forward to seeing what she can do. So far she’s giving me Rose Tyler crossed with Clara Oswald vibes.
I saw her announcement live on Children In Need, a fundraiser I haven’t actually watched in years (though I do put money in the buckets when I see them. I saw one today accompanied by a Mr Bean impersonator, so apparently that’s a job.) It’s so emblematic of this broken country. I just feel like, surely the BBC can cut out the middleman and give money directly to the families involved rather than paying out for a studio, a crew, and the celebrities? You know? Mel Giedroyc just began a sentence with “due to the cost of living crisis…” and I so badly wanted her to finish it with, “we’ve strapped a rocket launcher to Pudsey and are heading for 10 Downing Street.”
