The Times newspaper reports today that Prince Charles " doesn't like being used to market weapons and now sidesteps such activities where possible. " He has a funny way of showing it, at the end of the day he is nothing but a hypocrite.He is about to go on another little jaunt to the Middle East made at the request of the government. After he recently visiting Saudi Arabia, the arms company BAE systems announced it had finished their latest multi-billion pounds weapon deal.
Yes it's business as usual for members of the Royal family often seen dancing for autocratic rulers, to be seen at sumptious dinner parties, where the Queen entertains despots, torturers, dictators and murdering tyrants across the globe.
Daily they release their nauseating displays of wealth, power and privilege, they are not powerless and are certainly not harmless. The royal family also profits from uranium and other components of the war machine through Royal Ordnance sales and exports.Instead of prancing around the international stage acting like arms dealers, toadying up to Friends of oppressors, perhaps they should start promoting human rights. At the moment I do not understand at all, why we offer them any respect at all. It is time to start making peace profitable too.
