I guess I have some sympathy for that perspective, but it seems entirely implausible that by that measure there will be any point during the remaining reign of the current monarch where the health of her and her husband will be such that any critical commentary may be appropriate. In fact, even the heir apparent is starting to get long in the tooth.

RTÉ has come under fire for buying the Irish rights to show the much-talked-about Harry and Meghan interview despite insiders revealing they snapped it up for a bargain basement price of less than €10,000.

The national broadcaster screened the two-hour interview with Oprah Winfrey on RTÉ Two at 9.30pm on Monday night, which is half an hour after it begins screening on ITV in the UK.

More than three-quarters of a million people watched the Oprah interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on RTÉ.

John Le Carré got Irish citizenship following Brexit vote

https://www.rte.ie/news/2021/0401/12073 ... -le-carre/

he defected?

On Brexit, le Carré did not mince his words, comparing it to the 1956 Suez crisis which confirmed post-imperial Britain's loss of global power.

How many passports do you have? I stopped counting when you reached double figures.

Is that Dutch-made blue passport up and running?

What if I am passing through UK by boat and car, do I have to quarantine in Newcastle?
Maybe Paul knows.

Maybe Paul knows.

Assuming that Newcastle is your port of entry, that’s how I read the rule. 10 days or some time after having cleared your second post-arrival test. But, admittedly, I read it pretty quickly.
