    ‘Ms Balding’s civil partner, former BBC Radio 4 newsreader Alice Arnold recently said“Britain’s homophobia needs to be tackled before we turn to Russia’s.’

    Whatever happened to multitasking?

    Congratulations Clare and your lovely partner Alice who must share in your recognition.

    Many productive and happy years together.

    I dont care what she said to the parasite,
    maybe she should have said ” ma’am thank you for supporting institutionalised homophobia for decades but I’ll bow and curtsey like a sycophant “

  4. I will never forget a speech by Anne as she splutteed that Aids was the biggest own goal by homo…sapiens.
    There was no doubting her insinuation and I’ve despised her since.

    I’m not entirely clear why Miss Balding felt it necessary to comment on what she did or didn’t say to HRH. I’ve had the honour of having been presented to HRH and also to HRH The Duke of Gloucester. However, I never thought of ‘sharing’ what was said!

  6. Don’t forget it was HRH who spluttered that Aids was the biggest own goal in history by homo…sapiens and the insinuation was clearly evident so please don’t hold her up as someone honourable.

    recently some ghastly pop-up has started appearing from chrome about an app and is making the PN site and comments almost unreadable. is anyone else affected by this and what can you do about it?
