Prince Philip Strikes Again with Filipino Nurses

PRINCE PHILIP STRIKES AGAIN WITH FILIPINO NURSES – I love Prince Philip, you can always trust him to come out with the odd quip that those liberal idiots think is offensive.

“The Philippines must be half-empty; you’re all here running the NHS.” HRH Prince Philip

In classic style Prince Philip remarks, to a group of Filipino Nurses, he met while on a tour through an NHS Cardiac Centre in Luton and Dusntable:

“The Philippines must be half-empty; you’re all here running the NHS.” HRH Prince Philip

Seriously, how could anyone take an offense to this remark?  In fact if half those liberals that do take offense had a modicum of a sense of humour they would spend all day standing in front of a mirror laughing at themselves and their own stupidity.

Thank the heavens that we have Prince Philip as a National Treasure and at the grand old age of 91 he is still as sharp as ever.

What many people fail to see is that Prince Philip is more than capable to turning the quips onto himself which is evident in a recent remark about himself, when he told reporters that he was the world’s most experienced curtain putter – that is pulling the small curtains open on ceremonial plaques.

Buckingham Palace officials last night said they would not comment on the ‘private conversation’ his Royal Highness had with the nurses and in my view nor should they.

The Prince is an outspoken man and an extremely blunt and honest one.  It is a shame that those who often admonish him cannot muster the same moral fortitude nor sense of decency.

It has always been Prince Philip’s way to break the ice with a quip or two and I for one hope that his Royal Highness lives for many years to come and has many more quips to keep us amused and the situation real.

Here are a few more quips Prince Philip has come out with over the years – extract from the Daily Mail…

¤  He told British students during a 1986 state visit to China: ‘If you stay here much longer, you’ll all be slitty-eyed.’

¤  He once told a group of deaf youngsters from the British Deaf Association in Cardiff: ‘Deaf? If you are near there, no wonder you are deaf,’ referring to a school’s Caribbean steel band.

¤  He told Susan Edwards, who is blind, uses a wheelchair and has a guide dog: ‘Do you know they have eating dogs for the anorexic now?’

¤   He caused a storm while touring a factory in Edinburgh in August 1999 when he remarked that a fuse box ‘looked as though it had been put in by an Indian’.

¤   Again in Scotland, he outraged locals when he asked a driving instructor he met on a walkabout in Oban in 1995: ‘How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to get them past the test?’.

¤   ‘I would like to go to Russia very much — although the bastards murdered half my family.’ In 1967, when asked if he would like to visit the Soviet Union.

¤   In 2002, the Duke surprised a group of aborigines when he asked them: ‘Do you still throw spears at each other?’

¤   When asked if he knew the Scilly Isles, off the coast of Cornwall, he joked: ‘Yes, my son owns them.’

¤   And of his daughter, Princess Anne, he jested: ‘If it doesn’t fart or eat hay, she is not interested.’

¤   There’s a lot of your family in tonight.’ After noticing business leader Atul Patel’s name badge during a Buckingham Palace reception for 400 influential British Indians in 2009.

¤   On a visit to Valentines Mansion in Redbridge, North London, last March he also asked a 60-year-old man how many people he had knocked over on his mobility scooter.

¤   In May last year the Duke used his characteristic humour with members of the public in Bromley, south London, telling Hannah Jackson, 25, who was wearing an eye-catching pillar-box red dress with a zip running down the front: ‘I would get arrested if I unzipped that dress.’

As you can clearly see Prince Philip does have a wicked sense of humour and that’s all it is, mere humour to lighten the mood and put a smile on people’s face.  Let’s not allow the press to make Prince Philip as some kind of villain but rather a man who simply wants to make people feel at ease with a little joke.

If you cannot see the funny side to this then it is unlikely you will ever develop a sense of humour nor be an over happy person.
