1. She’s wearing the same dress, and he appears to be wearing the same clothes – certainly the same shoes.

    Maybe someone told him to put a tie on later?

  2. Maybe someone took the tie off and stuffed it into his mouth so they didn’t have to listen to him bloviating.

  3. I’m with George. ANY excuse NOT to wear a tie is a good one. I don’t know who invented the *** &%#*@&^%#$ things, but I want him/her drawn, quartered, boiled, flayed, and then burned. In public. On a pike. Not necessarily in that order.

    But that’s just me.

    1. I can’t find anything in your statement that I disagree with. Maybe add an acid drip to the eyes in there somewhere? 😉

  4. I’m with GMC70 and pkudude99 – f$%ck stupid neckties. If I don’t have to wear one – Wedding, Funeral, Audience with the Queen etc. – then I won’t wear one. They’re uncomfortable and they’re stupid. As much as I can hardly stand the sight of “George”, I am reluctantly on his side on this.

    GMC70: “I don’t know who invented the *** &%#*@&^%#$ things,…”

    Well, I don’t know specifically who, but you can be assured that it was some Brit wanker. (…could be French, I suppose, but I doubt it.)

    I remember way back in the mid seventies, I was watching the Dick Cavett show as he was interviewing Richard Nixon – the first formal interview of Nixon since the Watergate scandal and his resignation. The subject came up about Nixon’s visit to communist China and Cavett asked the question (paraphrased) – was there anything about Chinese society that you thought we could learn from? And Nixon laughed and answered: “Any society that can eliminate the necktie can’t be all bad.”

    Regardless of all that came before, Richard Nixon became one of my hero’s that day.

    And to our esteemed host: This is not aimed at you personally. You seem to love everything British, so if you wish to wear a necktie, you go right ahead. Free American citizens are allowed to have different tastes than you or I.

    1. It was the French we have to thank for inventing the tie. The only thing better than a man in a good suit and tie, is an Englishman in an excellent tux and tie. ‘Specially if they’re Daniel Craig. Yum.
