  1. Surely this is forelock tugging and grovelling to one’s so called social superiors to a new level! It is strange to think that the Duck of Edinburgh is a cult figure to some poor ignorant savages. I also sometimes have a laugh at how some inadequate folk on these islands bow and scrape to someone of such obviously limited talent and practically no accomplishments at all, unless you count having testicles an accomplishment.

  2. I think you are missing the point. The people on Tanna are not ignorant – that’s a very prejudiced thing to say. And if you read the book, you’ll realise that they don’t actually worship Philip. It’s more a ruse to lure silly tourists to the island. The joke is on everyone else, apart from the people on Tanna.

  3. I think you’ll find the whole world is hopelessly ignorant, apart from a few fortunate Blissheids to balance things up.
