As he has had regular meetings with the respective PMs, as recorded in the CC, for years now I don't see why there would be any change. No PM has come out and said that he doesn't know how to conduct himself in these conversations - the opposite if I remember Tony Blair for instance.

Why wouldn't they? PMs not still in office/not in politics anymore could say what they want. What would stop them?

No? Tell me why. If what you say makes sense I could change my mind, but if you don't make an argument that's rather hard to do. I'm not stupid enough to think I know everything!

I'm sure you know that they couldn't say a bad word against a future king.

Others have done so - including many politicians - so there is no reason to assume that a PM wouldn't do so.

This is my thought as well... I mean, as long as they don't talk about confidential meetings in politics there is nothing stopping them. And even if they couldn't say bad things, nothing is forcing them to say good things after the fact.

Because if they are in a private meeting it is confidential as well you know.

If it is confidential, how come they can say he's nice and good. If they said he's rude or meddling is just as vauge/much breaking confidentiality. Or am I missing something?

I confess I don't know much about Brittish politics. But they will have met Charles out of political settings (parties, parades and such) and if they wanted they could talk about that.

Could someone else (that's not doubting my intentions) give me the facts on this? 'Cause I really wan't to know....

No one ever talks about what was said in a meeting or even a casual chat with royalty. They can say he/she was lovely and interested in my ??? But that's it !!!! They aren't going to say " he bored me silly "

Really? No-one does that? So all those articles where people say what royals said is what? Fictional? Like Stephen Fry and Charles and Diana over for tea, Charles saying in private to one person that Putin acts like Hitler etc. etc.

I don't say people go around being rude, but if a republican former PM had bad interactions with Charles I doubt they would shut up about it.

You make absolutely no sense whatsoever.

It's his right to speak out

But

That doesn't make it right.

I am totally confused, please clarify.

Lots of perople talk about a casual chat with royalty. It depends who is speaking as to whether one is bored. Some people have found Charles to be witty and wise others are bored stiff. Each to their own.

What I'm saying is no prime minister will tell what he thought of his talks with Charles. IMO he might have thought he was raving mad but he's not going to say it. If you can't understand that I can't help you.

And all we want to know is WHY do you think no PM will do that? What is the thought process behind your statement?

Because he would know he would be hounded out of town and cop comments and bullying because he spoke up IMO is that clear enough.

Ok, I understand what you are saying. But a PM doesn't have to make a press conference about it. Some minor comments can set the ball rolling, without them putting a target on their back. And I am talking about retired politicians that haven't got a career to lose anymore, you know AFTER they're not the PM anymore. I don't know if it would be that much of an uproar. I think the uproar would be more at Charles since the media is usually biased against Charles and take any opportunity to pick on him.
