The Doshless of York has told friends of her mixed emotions at the WikiLeaks revelations about Prince Andrew braying like an ass in front of a Middle Eastern Rotary Club luncheon.
"On one hand, she sees his comments as proof they were perfectly suited to one another, liked-minded, sharing the same brain even," said the friend who picked up the bill over lunch with the Doshless. "She feels strongly that now she's not the only York prone to pop up in the newspapers saying really stupid things, her plans to remortgage, erm, remarry him, have renewed hope."
Conversely, the Doshless feels the Dolt's, erm, Duke's comments have severely compromised his value on the rental market.
"He's not getting any younger, the line of succession is lengthening in front of him, and obviously with comments like that his suitability for civilised conversation is limited at best," allowed the friend. "You see, she's never really given up her plan to sell him to somebody. It's sort of a 'Queen Camilla' strategy... seed the idea, endure the backlash, and then do as you please once everybody's weary of the whole distasteful idea. She's now claiming the News of the World fiasco was actually her executing phase one. Mind you, she's also thinking she might make more money breeding Labradors, so she may focus on that and then just list him on Gumtree to see if OBO nets anything worth considering."
