The peasants are revolting

Charles Windsor lectures the great unwashed.

Prince Charles has told British families to take shorter showers to help protect the environment.

The instruction came at the end of a list of 20 lifestyle changes recommended by the Prince of Wales for his new green campaign, Start.

Background: Peasants, know your place!

The Duchy owns 54,090 hectares of land across 23 counties. There are over 3,500 individual lettings, including 700 agricultural agreements, 700 residential agreements, and 1,000 commercial agreements.

The portfolio is managed in five geographical districts: London – commercial property and the Kennington estate; Eastern – estates in Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire; Hereford; Western – estates in Devon and Cornwall; and The Isles of Scilly. There are satellite offices on Dartmoor and at Poundbury.

The properties cover everything from large farms of more than 650 hectares to small gardens, office premises to craft workshops, Highgrove House to barn conversions, along with new developments such as Poundbury.

I do applaud his use of a coal-fired engine during his tour. The Duchy revenue will no doubt cover the carbon credits.

On a theme....where is the lady and her lake?!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

King Arthur: I am your king.
Woman: Well I didn't vote for you.
King Arthur: You don't vote for kings.
Woman: Well how'd you become king then?
[Angelic music plays... ]
King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your king.
Dennis: [interrupting] Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

Dennis: Oh, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.

Dennis: Oh but if I went 'round sayin' I was Emperor, just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away.

Dennis: Come and see the violence inherent in the system. Help! Help! I'm being repressed!
King Arthur: Bloody peasant!
Dennis: Oh, what a giveaway! Did you hear that? Did you hear that, eh? That's what I'm on about! Did you see him repressing me? You saw him, Didn't you?
