Prince William Rumoured Heading for Barbados

What? Barbados Free Press engage in rumours? Us? No Way!


But we just couldn't help it…

Britain's Prince William is planning a Caribbean holiday with sweetheart Kate Middleton – and is bringing along his ex-girlfriend.

The happy couple will reportedly be joined by pretty Jecca Craig – who reportedly had a fling with the handsome royal a couple of years ago – while they are in Barbados.

According to reports, 24-year-old Kate invited William's old flame, who is the daughter a wealthy Kenyan researcher, to tag along for the week. A source told Britain's The People newspaper: 'It shows how secure Kate feels with William that she is happy to invite Jecca on holiday with them. 'A few years ago that would have been unthinkable as Kate was deeply suspicious of the rumours that Jecca and Wills still had something going on. But now she is relaxed about things. And amazingly, the women have become good friends.'

Meanwhile, the prince has fuelled speculation he is set to propose to Kate during their trip. The 23-year-old has been on the look-out for a villa that will give him and brunette Kate privacy on the island, which is popular with celebrities and the paparazzi. The pair, who met at university and who have been together for almost three years, have sparked engagement rumours on several occasions. A source told The People: 'It is now no longer a case of if Kate will become William's bride, but when.'

From Royal Watch News.

Of course, given that Prince William is a proper gentleman, he will probably not even mention Prime Minister Owen Arthur's incredibly vitriolic and buffoonish comments of last August.

What was it that Sir Winston said to Chamberlain? Something about "Go… Just Go….", I think…

    Some 350 years ago Britain was plunged into a bitter Civil War which saw the forces of Parliament and the King pitted against each other. At the height of the conflict Cromwell, believing Parliament was no longer fit to conduct the affairs of the nation, declared:

    “You have sat too long for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go.”

    This was the source for what was said to Neville Chamberlain and Winston Churchill then formed the Government after Chamberlain’s resignation. Chamberlain and the French had been following a process of appeasement which let loose Hitler on the world.

    I always thought it was Churchill who used these words but I am no longer sure.

    Hello John

    I am incorrect… and your doubts are valid.

    It was apparently Leo Amery who made the devestating attack on Chamberlain on May 7, 1940…

    “I have quoted certain words of Oliver Cromwell. I will quote certain other words. I do it with great reluctance, because I am speaking of those who are old friends and associates of mine, but they are words which, I think, are applicable to the present situation. This is what Cromwell said to the Long Parliament when he thought it was no longer fit to conduct the affairs of the nation:

    “You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go”.

    I am sure I saw a History program with Churchill saying “Go, for God’s sake just go” but this may have been in support of Amery’s original remarks.

    The anniversary of the utterance of these words is just two weeks away.

    The amazing thing was that at the time, Churchill was a wildcard with Gallipoli and the failed Norwegian campaign on his record.

    Lord Halifax was supposed to have taken over but was overwhelmed by the enormity of the task and refused.

    The King sent for Churchill and the rest is history. But Churchill was a gamble.

    Just goes to show that the person everyone expects to take over in a crisis is not necessarily the person that will do the job well.

    Churchill got it because of his record of opposition of the policy of appeasement and because what he said would happen actually did.

    So, any Churchill’s out there?
