This poor lady on the radio talking about her dad not wanting to get up to get his own drink could be me :lol:
When it comes to one overbearing parent with control issues, I've found the best way to deal with it is to let them have their tantrum and not give in. Up until I left home I was always the one to apologise because I knew arguments with my father really upset my mum. The first time I refused to apologise we didn't speak for weeks, and it was really hard. It's gotten easier now, to the point that when we argue it's forgotten by the next phone call. My Dad's just had to learn to learn to loosen the iron grip.
The psychologists's right, in that both parties have to come away from an argument with their dignity. I don't think bullies should be entertained even if they are family. I also think that if you're not wrong you should never apologise for an easy life as it just makes relationships more strained.
The artist sounds like a complete twonk.
How is eating a swan art?

He has a point thought that the Royal family have some perculiar rights going back centuries they are incredibly reluctant to relinquish.
One I used to get very hot and bothered at was the Queens nasty habit of getting all the money from a estate if the person died in the Duchy of Lancaster. with out leaving a will.
Actually on research it was a right that covered the Duchy of Palantine as well. It may also still be on going in the Duchy of Devon and Cornwall.
The thing is the queen has very quietly not gone grasping the estates on moneys from people dieing intestate in the Duchys for the last few years but they try find relatives now before it goes not like elsewhere in the country to the goverment but to designated charitys chosen by the Duchy.
If my opposition to her money grabbing by devious ways has resulted in the end of that practice that up till the mid 90,s was giving the queen a tax free income of between £5/8 million a year. Then hurrah , but wonder what "charitys" it is that have been chosen. Would hate to think it was the Princes Binge Nights Fund
