Clown Prince

The more I read about Prince Charles, the more I hope that the Queen lives even longer than her mother:

Prince Charles has told some of his staff to use bicycles in the fight against global warming. He is even prepared to travel to London by commuter train from a station near Highgrove. Charles wants to be remembered as the “Green Prince” and is making a personal statement by planning a radical shake-up of his travel plans. It comes after the Government outlined its Climate Change Bill and follows David Cameron’s calls for a legal limit on harmful carbon emissions.

Charles will stop using royal helicopters and private jets on official engagements whenever possible.

Note that “whenever possible”.

Meanwhile “a source” tells the London Evening Standard: “this is a man who repeatedly warns about global warning yet he owns a classic Aston Martin and flies on private aircraft around the world.”

Indeed.
