That doesn't even begin to cover it. Step out of your bubble and think about history, nationhood, and politics on the big scale. Prince Philip was a main player of his times and did it with dignity, s

In my opinion, he was a great man. Throughout the lives of the majority of us he has been the bedrock for our head of state, our Queen, one of the most important and influential people in the world. W

I would imagine in normal times he would have had a big state funeral. I wonder how they will play it now? Very sad for the family and a loss to the nation.

Something tells me that he wouldn't have liked a state funeral.... wouldn't be surprised if it's just a quiet family affair with some sort of memorial later in the year.

I was looking forward to a mannin line without wint, after listening to the songs on manx radio I have decided it best if I turn off, although deepy sorry for the loss to the Royal family there is only so much morbid music one can listen to.

Me too, I was looking forward to a Wint-free day.

not watching!

Me neither. I heard the announcement when the car engine turned on. I listened long enough to find he died naturally and turned off. And off it shall remain.

End of an era and all that but I bet those with TV’s and social media and newspapers will be sick of hearing about it soon.

I’ll give it 24 hours before some huge argument breaks out about him and what he may or may not have done in the past. The whole thing is so depressingly  predictable.

Anyway, he gave us a few laughs - and other stuff - but I’m not up for hearing any more.

I’d probably let him get cold first dear...

2136 people recycling the same 5 repetitive sentences on BBC1, 2, ITV and Channel 5.

I'm holding out for a bank holiday still.

This is the Isle of Man...a crown dependency...not the UK, so I don't see this as important to us compared to the UK. So why the hell are Manx Radio just covering this only one item in the news? Probably because the station is now run by English people. It's like forced mourning by Russian TV and Radio.

Turn the bloody thing off Albert.  It's a beautiful day, go out and smell some sweet mountain air and remember what's important.

It's what he would have wanted.

I feel for Queen Elizabeth, the woman, as I know what it's like to lose the love of one's life. All the documentaries I've seen about the two of them suggest she loved him very much, and he was her best friend and her rock. 

As for Elizabeth the Queen, eh, she's got plenty with which to comfort herself and won't be worrying about her future financial security or roof over her head.   

Whatever, I don't really need to hear about it ad nauseam for the next fortnight.  

I do wonder though, will she finally retire and give Charlie a go at wearing the crown?

Nope. She'll die with her wellies and crown on. Charlie will have to wait his turn. That's the order of things.
