“Charles is too dangerous to be king”

I heard one of the cleverest men in Britain, master of an Oxbridge ­college, quite calmly say the other night: ‘The best hope for the ­monarchy is that Prince Charles dies before the Queen.’

This seemed a brutal observation from a kindly and temperate man, but he went on to justify it: ‘We spend our lives here educating a new ­generation to understand that rational behaviour requires us to reach conclusions and make ­decisions by examining evidence.

‘Yet now we have the heir to the throne demanding — not in a ­throwaway remark, but in an entire book to which he has just put his name — that we should reject science and evidence in favour of following our instincts. This is surely disturbing.’

    That’s a good find Steve. I’m fairly certain Australia will reject the monarchy once the dear old Queen passes.
    That moron Prince Chuck has no traction in Oz whatsoever.

    “Prince Charles yesterday urged the world to follow Islamic ‘spiritual principles’ in order to protect the environment.

    In an hour-long speech, the heir to the throne argued that man’s destruction of the world was contrary to the scriptures of all religions – but particularly those of Islam.

    He said the current ‘division’ between man and nature had been caused not just by industrialisation, but also by our attitude to the environment – which goes against the grain of ‘sacred traditions’.”

    Of course, Charles does have a slight doctrinal dispute with Islam over the treatment of confessed adulterers and adulteresses.

  4. Andy Weiss says:

    They could make him King or Queen or the Princess of Siam. He’s totally irrelevant one way or the other.

    Chuckles stands as the world’s best proof that inbreeding is a dangerous thing.

    EVERYBODY and ANYBODY is too dangerous to be KING or QUEEN!!!

    Eliminate the notion of the Monarchy from all governments everywhere around the world as soon as is calmly possible.

    Divine power via a king or queen is an insane hold over from the Bronze Dark Ages of when humanity was superstitious. Oh wait, 90% still are… sigh… still it’s time everyone grew up in the universe.

    As a living sentient being living in Canada I find the notion of the monarchy to be repugnant and anti-democratic.

    One of my ancestors, Samuel Lount, said “Canada will yet be free [from the Monarchy]” just before they hanged him for his role in proclaiming The Republic Of Canada in 1837. 173 years later the Monarchy still has real influence in Canada. Very sad state of affairs. Sure, not as bad as in other countries but still… this Monty Python video sums it up very well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvKIWjnEPNY.
