No it isn't ...

According to BBC News, the whole country is excited. Hmm, I don't think so!

But huge numbers of people are, and not just at home - there's an enormous amount of interest abroad.

I don't know anybody locally who is excited about the royal birth-to-be, certainly no sign of it around town here in Pompey.

Anybody else outside of London who has seen any signs of excitment?

I just hope we don't get the sort of communal hysteria that happened when Diana died.

I'm sure some people are excited but I hope they won't think I'm a bad person for not joining in with that excitement.

A woman is having a baby. Of course, I hope it goes well but no more so than I do for all the other babies born every day around the world.

"Now on BBC News, we go over to Dublin for the latest on the situation in Moscow."

The studio-based newsreader has been kicked out to stand outside the hospital and say 'The next news will come from Buckingham Palace'.

The hysterical coverage of this is verging on the ridiculous, so a woman is having a baby! I believe hundreds of other women do the same every day?

It is a matter of complete indifference to me what she has or when she has it.

I think the only time I might show a smidgeon of interest would be if she gave birth to Puff the magic dragon. Unless that happens I shall keep the TV and radio turned off until this whole awful pantomime reaches it's inevitable conclusion!

Couldn't agree more!

Nontek, no Street Party in your road then:-) Just another mouth for us to feed.

That means I agree with you, not worded very well.

"the whole country is excited. Hmm, I don't think so!"

I share that sentiment.
