Family values

Christopher Hitchens: A very silly man gives a very sinister speech.

This is what you get when you found a political system on the family values of Henry VIII.
We have known for a long time that Prince Charles' empty sails are so rigged as to be swelled by any passing waft or breeze of crankiness and cant. He fell for the fake anthropologist Laurens van der Post. He was bowled over by the charms of homeopathic medicine. He has been believably reported as saying that plants do better if you talk to them in a soothing and encouraging way. But this latest departure promotes him from an advocate of harmless nonsense to positively sinister nonsense.

We don't need another Thatcher. We need another Bloody Mary.
