Stephen Pollard wades into the blithering idiot who will one day be the king of England:
“I suppose we should all be grateful to the Prince of Wales. Until he opened his mouth in Abu Dhabi, I doubt if any of us realised how much better off we would be eating a Big Mac than wolfing down one of his own Duchy Originals Organic Cornish Pasties…You have to hand it to the Prince. There aren’t many people who can manage to be a loudmouth, a danger to the constitution and a buffoon all at the same time. Most of us can manage two of the three. Prince Charles is unique in getting the hat-trick…The Prince of Wales has shown over the years that he is simply a loudmouth who cannot resist shooting his mouth off when an opportunity arises. And as he is the heir to throne, such opportunities arise at will. Whether it’s the supposedly deplorable state of modern architecture (a matter of taste), the efficacy of alternative medicine (voodoo, not science) or the superiority of organic produce (an assertion with no evidential basis), Prince Charles appears to be a man of limited intellect, but to be nonetheless desperate to share the produce of that limited intellect with the rest of the country.”
This is just yet another reminder as to why the Queen needs to live to be at least 100 (and then be succeeded by Helen Mirren).
