Not been picked up much in Britain, but according to Reuters, William Hill are refusing to take bets on a July 19th wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. They’ve had people trying to put thousands of pounds on the date, and suspect there may be some insider knowledge at play.
A word of advice: don’t plan on going to London on July 19th 2007 unless you like it busy...
Don’t read too much into it. The ‘wannabe punters’ may well have been tabloid journalists trying to make up a story for a quiet Sunday edition. And check out this paragraph:
Earlier this week William and Kate were given an unusually high level of police security when 10 officers provided the couple with a cordon as they emerged from a London nightclub, fueling rumors of an imminent engagement announcement.
A case of chicken and egg. The high level of security was because there were a tonne of journalists outside hoping to get a photo of a ring. There wasn’t one, so the story was “KATE GETS PROTECTION AHEAD OF ENGAGEMENT”.
It’s all tabloid bullshit and I don’t believe a word of it*.
Macclesfield travel to Stamford Bridge for their FA Cup tie with Chelsea today.
We’re the form team going into this game, and this is an amazing opportunity.
Surprisingly, that’s the view of the Macclesfield goalkeeper, Tommy Lee.
Relevant factoids: Macclesfield are second from bottom in Division Two. Chelsea are second from top in the Premiership. There’s 88 places between them.
