There were a number of financial allegations in the allegations but most of the allegations related to sexual impropriety much of which today is no longer considered worthy of comment.

    Princess Anne said yesterday:

    "You know it is going to happen but you are never really ready."

Most people know that their loved one is near the end of their life because they are old or very sick, but that does not mean that they can avoid the tidal wave of grief-that moment of finality. This year more than most so many families have faced that moment, so I am sure that the Princess Royal speaks for not just the Queen and the royal family but the whole country: you are never really ready.

Another reason to look forward with a positive feeling of hope!

For some the thought of visiting a polling station might still seem daunting and something to avoid.
