    I'm not sure any left wing commentators are suggesting there is no interest in the book. It's the right wing commentators who claim no one cares who are going to great length to report on it.

    I've seen some who are so daft they are actually saying they are de humanising the Taliban. Imagine falling on the side of the Taliban on this.

    Harry has also gone on to say that part of the book is to help veterans who are sat suffering in silence because they feel they can't discuss their experiences so they end up going and killing themselves. It's ok you can talk about it.

    The best part of it is how trigger Dan Wootton is, and that Harry didn't even mention him by name.

    Good on him selling 1.4m books, and good on those who read it rather than rely on the Daily Mail to put their slant on it.

    To be fair he says it baffles him that people find this kind of shit important. It's not important but it is interesting for some. That's totally different.

    I am interested in this weekends Premier League football and I will probably watch a few of the game, however it's not important to me nor will I get worked up about it.

    Now if my other half is taken ill and I can't get an ambulance for her, that is important and that is what is happening up and down the country at present, yet it only get a fraction of the coverage Prince Harry does.

    I couldn’t give a rats arse about how many books some posh kid may, or may not have sold. Neither should anybody else.

    He has now come out and said he has more dirt which he could:

    a) fill another book with;
    b) cause unrepairable damage with his own father and brother.

    Now, even if that was true, why would you openly announce it? Is £20m not enough from the first book, where he wants to tempt a publisher into offering £50m, £100m even, to dish more dirt?

    Seems like this is the road he's going down. He's opened the tap now, no point in stopping it in his eyes.
