I have also seen that the BBC received about 400 complaints about Andrew being interviewed (I wonder how many complaints ITV or Sky News received as they also ran the interview). I wonder how many complaints the palace would have received if Andrew had refused to answer any questions. He can't win in this situation but first and foremost he is a son mourning his father and wanting to support his mother. It is a pity the haters can't get their heads around something as basic as being human.

Us Brits just love to complain! Over 100 people complained to the BBC that it was too easy for people to complain!

Seriously, the BBC was never going to make 100% of people happy, but they had to give proper and sombre coverage to such a major event. Gogglebox was still on channel 4, so people had options.

Complaints about BBC programming after Philip's death amounted to over 100,000

At the BBC, the number of complaints about the programming after the announcement of the death of Prince Philip has well exceeded 100,000. Never before in British television history has been so much complained about the programming of the public broadcaster, according to British media.

The BBC's previous complaint record dates back to 2005, when 63,000 people complained about Jerry Springer: The Opera. According to the British newspaper The Guardian, 110,994 people have complained in recent days.

Special complaint form
After Philip's death, the BBC radically changed the programming, which led to the cancellation of numerous radio and TV programs. Many viewers zapped away. Both BBC1 and BBC2 had lower viewing figures than a week earlier.

Within hours of Philips death, the number of complaints about the reporting had grown to such an extent that the BBC placed a special complaint form on the website to steer the complaints flow in the right direction. This form was removed again on Sunday, making it more difficult for people to express their displeasure.

Prince Andrew
According to an internal BBC complaint log, which has been reviewed by The Guardian, viewers and listeners mainly felt that too much attention had been paid to the death of the prince. Nor did they understand why the BBC had adjusted the programming on all channels, while it could have been chosen to do so on only one of the channels.

Incidentally, not all complaints were about the extent of the coverage by the BBC. Some 400 complaints were also received about the broadcast of a response from Prince Andrew. The prince was friends with the late American businessman Jeffrey Epstein, who has been convicted of sexual abuse. Prince Andrew is accused of also participating in Epstein's abusive practices and for that reason has provisionally relinquished his princely duties.

In addition, The Guardian also noted more than 200 complaints about the clothes of the presenters. According to the complainants, they would have been disrespectfully dressed when Prince Philip's death was announced.

Yes a very average at best before all the work and money on clothes... but the next generation shows it ... the genes canít be avoided before they too do the same ... but she will go the MT Lux route... expect MT was better looking before all the fake ness

Made me think of a Chinese cartoon in which a beautiful mother gave birth to an "ugly" child. Which surprised the new father. Indicating that mom had a lot plastic surgery and such.

These days I am "captivated" by the Northern Irish series The Derry girls. Since I don't have access to Channel 4 or Netflix, I have to make do with what I find online (especially Youtube). Currently I got a friend with Netflix so far that he has now started the series. I already got quotes from the first episodes via Whatsapp.

More than 15 years ago I once did a group camping trip through part of Ireland (we were with 9 in total, incluiding the tour guide). In general a fantastic country and especially fantastic inhabitants. For example, when we visited a local pub, we were carried away by Irish people in an Irish dance through the pub. An enthusiastic lady tried to teach us the movements. And we often had hilarious and warm conversations. We started just south of Dublin, crossed Ireland straight to Galway, then towards Killarney (including the lovely Ring of Kerry area), half an arc across the south of Ireland to Cork (whiskey tasting among others) and from there to Dublin (including Temple Bar of course; Guinness Brewery and Trinity College). After that we took the boat back to Wales (that area was also included in this trip). I truly enjoyed Wales and Ireland!

Derry Girls is a sitcom created and written by Northern Irish writer Lisa McGee and produced by British production company Hat Trick Productions. It is set in Derry, Northern Ireland, during The Troubles in the 1990s. Erin (Saoirse-Monica Jackson), her cousin Orla (Louisa Harland), their friends Clare (Nicola Coughlan) and Michelle (Jamie-Lee O'Donnell), and Michelle's English cousin James (Dylan Llewellyn) navigate their teen years during the end of The Troubles in Derry, where they all attend a Catholic girls' secondary school. Erin lives with her father Gerry and mother Mary, her baby sister Anna, Mary's younger sister Sarah, Sarah's daughter Orla, and her maternal grandfather, Joe. James is Michelle's cousin; his mother Cathy left Derry for England to have an abortion but gave birth to him and raised him in London. She sends him back to Derry to live with Michelle and her mother Deirdre when she is going through a divorce.

Dual citizen US and Ireland here, from southern Donegal right above the bay  where they blew them sky high. I would agree with Curtains. I trust you will not tell me I don't know what I'm talking about Curley Sharon? As Uncle to the Queen's husband, First  Sea Lord of the Admiralty, last Viceroy of India, Supreme Allied Commander of SE Asia during WWII, first Governor-General of India after overseeing the partition and the creation of Pakistan, Made Earl Mountbatten of Burma IN HIS OWN RIGHT, not inherited...... Pretty sure history will look back at him and remember.

I did not know that about you, DoV. Youíre full of surprises!
My Grandparents were born in Frosses, Donegal and emigrated to America  around 1922. After they became citizens here in US, the depression came and they returned to the family 'home farm' in Ireland, where my dad was born of American citizens in Ireland (1 of 7!). This enabled my dad, myself and Juliet to be dual citizens. I used to  'go home' as my Grandparents called it, every year in the 70's  onward for the  summer with them. Our family  has lived on the same property since well before the American Revolution. The name of the home farm is a bastardization of the Norman french for red because the heather ran from the top of the ridge all the way down to the river...maybe 30 acres.  My Great Grandmother, whom I never knew, had a rose garden that outlived her which I still remember to this day.

And to go back to the Mountbatten thing, the gates on the estate had an entwined cypher of EB (Earl of Burma) worked into the 10' tall wrought iron.....Isn't that right Curley Sharon??? Bone Fides here.
I looked it up on twitter and there was nothing about that, so it's probably fake news...  Halo
You know the beauty of Ireland, is when you have family there, no matter how long it's been, you still have family. It had been about 20 years since I had last been. The Duke had an unexpected business thing that brought us to Ireland on virtually no notice. I tacked on  a couple of days extra and we  drove to Donegal. I pulled into the family owned pub in town and said  to the bartender (who had the family look) "Are you a Verona?  Can you tell your dad the Duchess is here?" and he came trotting down the stairs and spent the next 3 days giving the Duke the personal tour of the county. It was the Duke's first visit.

Here's the bay

Donegal in general is fantastic https://www.audleytravel....aces-to-go/county-donegal
