Right! Having got the problems with the public address system sorted out
(I’m sure Kenton never has to put up with this sort of thing at the
Ambridge Fete, but then he has a team of crack BBC engineers setting
things up for him. If only we had one available to us) let’s move on the
the next category which is the self-referential Bad Taste About Umra
award. To present it we move from a woman who is giving up a royal
position to a couple who have given up the media spotlight to hide away
under a media spotlight. Who better to resent an award for social media
than the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. I’m sorry, that should have read
“present”, or as we used to say TWATBILI.

Who are you calling a twat?

And his name’s Harry, not Billy.

That’s right Megs. Shall we just get on with this, we’ve got a Netflix
special to record in half an hour. We don’t need to spend much time on
these small people.

Don’t forget these small people pay their Netflix subscriptions so they
can find out all about us.

Not *all* I hope. The nominations are:

the boat for a while.
Would that have been the Marchioness?

Nominated by Kate B

Not a good idea. That "Chair" looks more like a wobbly
stool from this angle.
Is it plugged in ?

Nominated by Serena Blanchflower

And the winner is Nick Odell for the Marchioness.

Or as I call her, Aunt Hannah. Come on, Megs, let’s go before… well
let’s just go.

Thank you the Sussexes.

Oh good grief! Not again. Thank you Kate, thank you John. After my success with the Marchioness perhaps I ought to go on to bigger things - like The Herald of Free Enterprise?

Oh: does this mean I have to repeat all that twaddle about John being a beacon of excellence in the Bad Taste Monitorisation of UMRA? Lord give me strength!

I think it's very clear that I have been upgraded to a Beacon of Mediocrity.
