One man defies politicization of the Crown
At a historic time in the life of Britain, when MPs debate the European Union's Lisbon constitution treaty which will bind Britain even more tightly into what Europeans call the Empire of Europe, at an hour when patriots in the House of Commons and the House of Lords assert that the treaty threatens the independence of Britain and the rights and freedoms of the British people, who have been denied the promised referendum on the question, HRH the Prince of Wales is found in Brussels addressing the European Parliament and calling for greater powers for the European Union to fight 'global climate warming'.
This is a gross and underhanded politicization of the Crown by Gordon Brown and the Labour Party. The Prince’s speech was made at this time to give support to Labour’s aggressive, unfair, and unfree push to force the Lisbon Treaty down the throats of the British people. That the Prince did not realise this is likely.
That anyone could consider the European Union a defender of the environment is a monstrous pity. The EU has destroyed Britain’s fishing stocks and fishing grounds and fishermen in one of the greatest environmental disasters of the last century by allowing European countries to haul fish at devastating rates from British waters. EU ships are now doing the same thing to poor African fishermen off the west coast of Africa. Shrouding itself in environmental righteousness, the EU is an environmental vampire.
We can report that one man defied the crass and disgusting politicization of the Prince and the Crown. This was a man we have not always applauded in the past.
According to John Kelly, who sent us details, the Prince received a standing ovation from about 150 British MEPs and representatives from the European Parliament's climate change and environment committees. But Nigel Farage, leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party, who had joined the standing welcome for the Prince, refused to stand for the ovation. He said afterwards that the Prince's advisers had been “naive and foolish at best” to allow him to make a political speech at such a delicate time.
The Sovereign has a constitutional role to play in defending the just laws and freedoms of the British people. The Prince's entanglement in Gordon Brown’s web is not part of that role.
