You're kidding, Skydragon. Not even for the sake of promoting a worthy product would a refinded gentleman as HRH sample wine from such a mug. His face obviously seems to tell that this is not wine, but a joke!

While I enjoyed some Muller-Thurgau and Seyval Blanc from Lamberhurst (Kent? Or Sussex?), I'm in addition convinced that whatever there is in this mug, it's definately not wine from Yorkshire as surely the pole starts to really thaw before there is a chance to produce in Yorkshire (of all Shires!) a product the natural way that resembles wine.

I have been seen to taste beer made in a bathtub from stuff bought at Boots (glad noone ever reported me to a paper!) But while I have to say that the tubbed stuff was a least resembling beer, I'm not sure I'll ever state that for the wine in the mug.

'I think you will find it is my aftershave' - David Blunkett on dining with Prince Charles

Quote from the article, which I find really funny!
Quote:
Charles then decided he would like to show me round his garden, which he duly did, and while he was taking me round I commented on being able to inhale the most wonderful smell of lavender everywhere we went. He replied: "Secretary of state, I think you will find it is my aftershave."

Well, it depends what you make it from, apparently.

Does any body have any idea about fragence or aftershave for males? I am very surprised to see Charles's choice of "Lavenda" because I thought he would use some sandlewood,mint or other more masculine type aftershave. Lavenda seems to be more feminine in my views.

A quick Google can provide info. about just about anything

"Lavender, with its intensely aromatic waves of scent, is generally considered a masculine olfactory attribute." See comment under "Masculine-Feminine" about its novel use as a base for a perfume for women: http://www.osmoz.com/statique/Etatde.../tendances.htm

LONDON, United Kingdom: Britain's Prince Charles leaves the Treasury building in central London, 24 October 2006, after speaking with Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown at a Corporate Social Responsibility Summit. The Prince faced new pressure Tuesday to open up his accounts today as Members of Parliament demanded to know why his main income from the Duchies of Cornwall and Lancaster benefit from tax exemptions.

Less dramatic headlines from the BBC.

MPs want to see Charles accounts

MPs want to inspect Prince Charles' accounts for the Duchy of Cornwall. The Commons Public Accounts Committee has written to the Treasury saying it wants the National Audit Office to be able to inspect the books.

These MPs need stringing up. How dare they question His Royal Highness. I'd like to see them scatter when we propose a tax check on them.

Thanks for the link, Milla Ca.
The responds from Clarence House are very clear in wording why HRH does not have obligations to pay corporate tax. He only needs to pay income tax and he should be annoyed to have tax deductability because his main activities are charity work and official engagements.

It seems whenever the MPs want to divert attention from other issues, they pick on Charles for some reason or other. Sigh. His tax situation/Duchy income is any easy target. Hopefully this won't turn into a huge thing.

Gordon Brown defending the Prince of Wales?! Heavens above. One does wonder if Mr Brown is playing the Royalist card.

Maybe he is just a law-abiding citizen and all the PoW's actions have been perfectly in accord with the current British laws?
