Prince Charles has launched a blistering attack on free market economics - calling for a radical shake-up of capitalism to save the planet.
The outspoken royal said society's 'current operating model' was destroying the environment and should be transformed to tackle the growing threat of climate change.
Charles, 65, urged some of the world's most powerful business leaders to make unpopular decisions or risk 'bringing us to our own destruction'.

I have No idea where this belongs. Its an interview with PoW

It covers about becoming King;
His boys and their future
His boys and the media

and VIP - Camilla poss being Queen.


EDIT - OLD INTERVIEW - but the BBC has re-issued it - presumably to restart the debate


Mods - up to you

BBC News - Prince Charles says Camilla 'may become Queen'

Supporters of what? Whatever it is, Charles seems to be having a good time.

Thnaks, Iceflower. He has such a personal sense of style. It's lovely to see him so amused.

Dman, thanks for the link.

No-one's commenting on this, but this is just so typical of Charles and how he tries to help. He not only visited Somerset when things were really bad, but he's back to check in with them again and probably will do so in the coming months and years. He doesn't just go for the photo op the way the politicians do.

This is a snippet from a Times article on his visit:

Quote:
Flood families thank Charles

The Prince of Wales admitted that speaking his mind is “in his blood” as he revisited communities on the Somerset Levels hit by floods this year.

Charles was in the village of Muchelney, where in February he shamed ministers and the Environment Agency into finally responding to the crisis when he said: “The tragedy is that nothing happened for so long.”

Jane Pine, 59, of Meare Dairy Farm, in North Curry, said: “We have been fighting for ten years to try to do something about these moors and he achieved more on his February visit than in all that time. I told Prince Charles and he said ‘Well I had to do something, it runs in the family, it’s in my blood.’ And he is, he is just like his dad — he says it like it is.
“He said, ‘At least I have done some good.’

He really does know what he is talking about, he is a farmer himself and he knows what is going on at this time of year.

“He pushed all the politicians into doing something. We have all been pushing for years and they have done nothing."
Flood families thank Charles | The Times

This won't get nearly so many comments as the latest designer outfit worn by one of the younger queens or princesses, which is a shame because this is what royalty is for. This is how they prove their worth.

I appreciate your point, PetticoatLane but, although I have always admired the Prince of Wales's work, there is only so much I can think of to say about articles like this. Unless there is some sort of controversy, the thing I can think of is to say: "way to go, Charles."
