Stymied anti-monarchist manure protest, or "plot to kill" the royals?by Toby Manhire
Celebrity gossip blog exposes the septuagenarian's "plot", and frets that Princess Kate could be next.
But only in the hands of gutter gossip blog Celeb Dirty Laundry is it ramped up into a threat to the poor possums' lives. Technically possible that horse manure could cause death, perhaps, but it demands a bit of imagination.
Oh, and they manage to shoehorn Princess Kate into the headline, too.
Quite an effort:
Is Kate Middleton Next? Plot To Kill Prince Charles And Camilla Parker-Bowles Uncovered
The waffle beneath includes a warning that we should not be too quick to demand that Charles and Camilla "should stop down and let Prince William and Kate Middleton take over the thrown".
I didn't make that up.
For Celeb Dirty Laundry, horse manure seems about right. Or bat shit. Or something.
