(satire – I think)
NORMAN Tebbit yesterday urged jobless House of York kings to be more like eastern European royals and “get on their horse” to find work instead of lying around doing nothing.
The former Conservative minister repeated advice he gave 30 years ago saying dead kings in the UK should follow the examples of Polish, Hungarian and Lithuanian royalty – all of whom had to find jobs after their royal families were abolished.
The veteran 79-year-old politician, who has a fearsome reputation of speaking his mind, said after being asked if deposed royalty should get on their horses to look for work:
Yes. Dead Kings can’t just expect to lie around car parks for centuries. They should do what deposed royalty in Poland, in Hungary and in Lithuania did and go out and find themselves a proper job.
