why is the symbol for integrity an unlocked lock but the symbol for corruption a lock
Because a society that is free of corruption is open--like an open lock. At least, that's the logic I'd always assumed.
13 million watched Prince Philip's funeral. Amazing how many can care about someone who wouldn't have peed on them if they were on fire.
And your point is...?
That was my point.
I fear I don't really get it.
The royal family is generally respected, especially the Queen and to a lesser extent her late husband. Showing positivity to them is, to some extent, a matter of national pride. 13 million is less than 20% of the UK's population, and I'd be willing to get a portion of those numbers are not residents of the UK (foreigners, expats, diplomats/dignitaries, etc.) I don't really think it's that surprising that people tuned in. If it had been, say, 50% or more of the country's population, that would be pretty impressive/surprising. 20% seems about right for covering both hardcore royalist supporters and people who were just curious about what a royal funeral is like.
I know little to nothing about the man's personality, so I can't really comment on the shade you've thrown his way. He always seemed pretty mild-mannered to me.
I agree. I don't agree with many of the things the British Royal family has done, but Philip was a decent guy.
Pretty mild mannered with all his little racist comments, yeah.
r u ok lmao
