Well done, gang
The cpmary blogspot community and its many sympathisers, known and unknown, owe themselves a big pat on the back and hearty congratulations on the democracy in action just manifested. Curious timing, the recent press release by the palace press officer confirming (and stressing) a PRIVATE visit by the junior Bogansons? I think not, ladies and gents. A right ruckus was raised to the feelers put out recently by the -parret court as to the viability of an official visit of the little family to their favourite country, Australia. So loud and wide was the protest that the retraction of the ill-conceived idea of a New Years 2008 tour was quickly forgotten in place of what will have to be a quickly slapped together December 2006 tour ("Patty, put some sheets on the pull-out sofa. The boy and I will need your bedroom"), with or without Fred - that has yet to be confirmed. Baby boy may not be able to put together a sailing gig on such short notice. But don't count him out! If there is one thing you have come to know and love about sensitive action man, it's that he can paste together a ramshackle crew faster than Amber Petty can find a red carpet. Maybe a little call will be in order to Mary's former boss, or Xn's godfather, or the other sailing hangers-on they've allowed to because of their desirable connections? Crisis truly averted?
Stay tuned for how this "private visit" will all turn out. How many photographers will be clued into prime viewing places for the group's activities? How many "candid" happy-family shots with the greater clan will there be? How much of the extended family will be invited to meet lille Xn and pretend not to notice the encephalitis? How much would Murdoch pay for a shot of Johncock holding the little gallstone-gene mutation? Will Yehudi be nearby? Will Suse continue to exclude her own brood? The questions abound and the possibilities are still endless - after all, we're still in the strategic planning phase. So why not celebrate your recent success and all the glorious options for the upcoming Tour 2006: Escape from Winters Danish with a glass of privately purchased champers? To you! Skål!
