Does anyone remember when pop singers got on stage and sung, without undressing down to their knickytams?
The prelude the Btits annual crap show featured millennials in their underwear screeching and bawling the same old crap, stripped to the bone!
I have no problem looking with looking at young females in their underwear gyrating on stage, but I do have a problem with the PC brigade branding me a pervert for looking at them !
I am not undressing for the public. I am not making a spectacle of myself on a public stage. They are. Rather than watch them, I have the option of using the ‘off’ switch, but the fact remains, it was presented on my TV screen without invitation.
Bring back the day when chanters were judged on their vocal merits rather than how much flesh they were prepared to bare.
It really has gone too far now. The public are bombarded with videos of young girls wearing their undies, whilst squawing like banshees in the hope of becoming rich and famous!
If you can sing, and you are tuneful, people will pay to hear you. If you are a parasitic wannabe prepared to undress for a few minutes of fame, then you will get all you deserve.
My advice. Go to a vocal class, keep your duds on, and learn to sing.

HRH King Rab.

I was saddened to hear of the death of Cyrille Regis, and remember meeting him in 1977 when he signed for The Baggies.
The Press were summoned to the Throstle to get pics of their new wonder player, and he never did disappoint, despite the away support ‘banter’ which was without doubt, real and true racism.
If my memory serves me well, Cyrille was the first black footballer to be pelted with bananas, and subjected to monkey ‘whoo whoo whoo’ calls with the accompanying arms gestures.
To be honest, I remember it being classed as ‘funny’ back then, but in retrospect, it was indeed an awful thing to do to a young man who became a wonderful player, and shrugged off the abuse. Remember, those were different times.
It is comical to think that as a male who had no interest whatsoever in football, I was obliged to cover matches at Birmingham City, Aston Villa, West Bromwich and Wolverhampton Wanderers every Saturday afternoon.
I met all the young wonder players of the day who went to become household names, and didn’t care a jot about it.
The only sports star of whom I was in awe, and met, was Henry Cooper. He has been left in limbo in the Birmingham Motor Show press room, and I was in like Flynn to shake hands and chat with my childhood boxing hero.
Talking to Janet tonight about reporting for the Birmingham papers in the 70s, I met, and forgot so many household names it beggars belief. It was just my job !
I wish now I had taken a little more notice of those I was interviewing.

Cheers, HRH Rab.

Blimey! Another contemporary bites the dust. Aussie radio broadcaster Ed Doolin, probably not well known outside the Midlands, has joined Cyrille Regis at the age of 76.
Ed was a stalwart of BRMB, the Birmingham independent radio station for several years before joining Auntie Beeb a couple of years after I moved back to God’s own country in 1980.
I used to meet him at various events and Press bashes, and although we never socialised personally, he was a likeable guy who never reacted to baiting about his Aussie accent.
He ended up being a bit of a social champion for the masses, and made his mark at the BBC simply by staying in his stamping ground.
Any time he entered a press conference the local hacks would greet him with ‘Wharro Cobbler’ to which he would reply with a happy Aussie request to ‘go away.’
He was one of the good guys.

Cheers, HRH Rab.

It appears the Scottish Nationalist Party are in control not only of the Scottish Parliament, but also the Scottish weather.
Today, First Minister Wee Nicola Sturgeon publicly apologised, on television, to all the drivers who managed to get stuck in the snow on the A74.
What a preposterous piece of self indulgence, from someone supposed to be in control of Scotland’s affairs.
What on earth will the SNP be apologising for next week?
We are being asked to believe that the SNP invoked the heavy snowfall, which stranded the half wits who chanced their arm in such conditions.
This public apology really does take the biscuit. I know it is the current fashion to be apologetic, but to claim responsibility for Scottish blizzards is not taking the biscuit, it is taking the p***!
I am fast falling out of sympathy with the SNP because of their all encompassing need to be responsible for everything which occurs North of the border.
To apologise to stranded motorists is blind arrogance, and totally unnecessary, designed to fool the masses into believing the SNP ministers are Gods.
It is time for change … but to what?
I may claim my right to the throne!

Cheers, HRH Rab.

Tonight, I write as the founder member of the ‘straight rights brigade’ ‘NPWOSTOS’ to complain about the deviant outfits using what they regard as degrading words to describe themselves.
They object to being called ‘queers’ yet they advertise deviant bands as ‘Queer.’
The upcoming Celtic Connection Festival even has a genre referred to as ‘Queer Music.’
So where do we draw the contentious line?
They can refer to themselves as ‘queer’, but if straights refer to deviants as ‘queer’ we are denounced as homophobic!
Tonight on Question Time some rarely known Yank spouts forth about the caring, sharing, loving, British all embracing people. He would wouldn’t he. He is allegedly ‘married’ to diver Tom Daley.
If it is accepted that the deviant brigade can campaign for what they see as their rights, surely it is acceptable that I, and the ‘straight rights brigade’ can campaign for our rights without being demonised as homophobic.
If that is the litmus test to which we must all adhere, then the deviant brigade are constantly libelling and slandering the normal people by decrying those who oppose them as ‘homophobic.’
They are ‘hetrophobic’ and should be prosecuted.
I am arranging a NPWOSTOS rally in Trafalgar Square some time in February, providing I can squeeze one in between the deviant rallies, ‘scuse the loose pun!
I bet most of you have worked it out, but just in case some haven’t … Normal People Who Only **** The Opposite Sex.
You all know it makes sense.
Membership application forms not needed, just a normal outlook on life guarantees admission.
No rainbow coloured flags, no Samba band drumming, no dressing up like numpties, you only have to be NORMAL.
The time to recover from the ills of the world starts here.

Cheers ‘n’ beers, Rab.
