Prince Charles’ Solar Panels

To the Independent about our beloved heir to the throne:


Once again our heir to the throne seems to have been smoking the flowers instead of talking to them. His latest hair-brained scheme is to put a mass of photo-voltaic solar panels on a listed building – something to which he would no doubt vociferously object were anyone else to behave so vandalously. This has delighted tree huggers everywhere who seem to be as oblivious as him about the hideous pollution caused by the production of these things. We would be doing a better service to the planet if we banned them, but there is no telling that to the smugly self-righteous, is there?
