Gerry: I call him that because if there is to be a constitutional monarch they should keep their nose out of politics. He has used his influence to have taxes used to fund his favorite homeopathic medicine, criticized politicians openly, angered architects, built a crap housing estate, and claims to be an organic farmer, but has his crops rejected by supermarkets for being inferior. He wants to send Britain back to a pastoral society. He believes that we should look to Islam as a model for environmentalism. He should STFU up stick to opening supermarkets and not try to use his position to sell his nostalgic and eccentric views. That's why I say he is an idiot. Here is a link The majority of British people do not want him to be king.

Hi burbclaver, nice to meet you. Why do you say "Her idiot son" ? Over the last 50 years Charles has generaly done a good job. Yes, in the 80s he and his wife did not get on well and they mucked up their marriage. I loved Diana, but it's been 30 years almost, time to get over it.
I think Charles will make a good king. Though with a brief reign and then Williams up there and everyone loves Kate so win/win!

@Gerry1of1. Hi, Gerry I don't think we`ve been introduced, but I have seen yor posts. Yes, she does a good job for what it`s worth, but the point is that her idiot son Charles automatically gets the job next when she snuffs it. Then there`ll be a big outcry by people who didn`t understand what it meant to have an hereditary monarchy and thought they were going to get that sweet William chap and his nice wife. You won`t be seeing 80% approval then. Also, since she isn`t a politician and more of a celebrity, the approval rating doesn`t compare.
