A Spicy Story

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

The old story about a member of the Spice Girls orchestra apparently patting or pinching Prince Charlesís royal bottom has emerged from hiding.

Everyone seems to think it was quite a jolly jape.

Which it probably was.

Though he was either married or in a relationship at a time.

So it wasnít such a jolly jape.

And look it at the other way round.

What would have happened if Prince Charles had pinched or patted the bottom of a Spice Girl ?

Can you imagine the furore?

There would have been headlines demanding that Charles resign from the monarchy. There would have been complaints about harassment and sexual abuse.

Odd, ainít it?

One law for the goose and one for the gander.
