image for Duke of Edinburgh: "Muslims a bit funny"

In his latest interview the Duke of Edinburgh sparked controversy by claiming "Muslims are a bit funny". The Prince was being interview by the BBC about his opinions on Britishness.

When asked how he felt about the integration of non British people in to the British society he responded by saying "I think its great they're all coming over here with they're funny head thingy's and big beards"

However when he was asked about the religious tensions experienced in some communities across the country he shocked the interviewer by saying "Those Muslims, they're a bit funny arnt they, if they're not burning flags they're blowing themselves up"

The Duke, who is no stranger to controversy famously remarked during a visit to the Racal-MESL factory in Newbridge, in 1999 that an old-fashioned fuse box looked as if it had been "put in by an Indian". Earlier that year in a state visit to Ireland he allegedly remarked that the population were all "pikeys" and were bred from one massive pikey mum in a caravan much like the aliens in the film Aliens.

In Australia, in 1998, the Duke suggested that tribes in Papua New Guinea were still cannibals. "You managed not to get eaten, then?" he told a student who trekked the Kokoda jungle trail.

Perhaps most famously in China, during the 1986 state visit, he described Peking as "ghastly" and told British students: "If you stay here much longer, you'll all be slitty-eyed."

The Founder of the League of Old People Lovers, Bob Twain, commented that "you have to love old people don't you, they can be funny with their old fashioned opinions and wobbly, saggy bits"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
