Charley Boy is at it again!


The Prince of Wales has warned the climate crisis will “dwarf” the impact of coronavirus.

In a recorded message, to be played at the virtual opening of Climate Week on Monday, Prince Charles said “swift and immediate action” was needed.

The prince said Covid-19 provided a “window of opportunity” to reset the economy for a more “sustainable and inclusive future”.

He added that the pandemic was “a wake-up call we cannot ignore”.

In his message, recorded from Birkhall in the grounds of Balmoral, Prince Charles said: “Without swift and immediate action, at an unprecedented pace and scale, we will miss the window of opportunity to ‘reset’ for… a more sustainable and inclusive future.”

“[The environmental] crisis has been with us for far too many years – decried, denigrated and denied,” he said.

“It is now rapidly becoming a comprehensive catastrophe that will dwarf the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.”

I’m not sure what this “window of opportunity” is. Surely he does not mean we should all accept a permanent 20% drop in GDP, unaffordable government borrowing, millions of job losses and draconian restrictions on our personal freedom?

Maybe Charley would like to set us all an example and sell the four mansions,  Clarence House, Highgrove, Birkhall and Llwynywermod, which he lives in at various times of the year, and move into something slightly less energy intensive.

Suggestions welcome!
