One Massive footprint going to be left.

For a guy from a priveledged background, IMO our future king talks a lot of common sense.

The worry is that if he can't stop the steamroller, what chance have we commoners got ?
mogs

so why on earth cant he put his foot down and do something about it....no point in having all that power and not using it!!!!
Bazzer

It's a shame he hasn't any real clout.
I think he's a bit of a pillock at times but he does talk a lot of sense and his heart is in the right place most of the time. Shame his Duchy produce is so damn expensive though.
bodger

Exactly ! He's saying that the power to do this is in the hands of massive business conglomerates who can't be trusted. he hasn't got the clout to stop it.
mogs

so maybe he should have a word in ' mummy's ' shell like !!

i think he is on the right track, and always has been to be honest, even when he said he talks to plants... ...he has got a lot of common sense ( quite unusual for academic types, usually lots of brains but no common sense )  but he definately needs to start to do something about it, and soon, before ' his ' ( once mummy has stood down )  country falls into such a state we will not be able to get ourselves out of it.......
bodger

I don't think that he's particularly brainy, that one of his attractions. He's none to academic, I'm sure that his exam results were none too clever. At least he married a school maam kind of figure. icon_biggrin.gif

Unfortunately his mum doesn't have any real clout either. When it comes to matters like this. The royal " we are not amused" doesn't go very far.

dont know anything about politics....but surely is the government not answerable to her?  seeing as how she is the reigning monarch?

They are also the ones who could dissolve the monarchy, (if anyone can, that is, and I think they can, they certainly talk like they can.)
