Prince to visit Dorchester and Poundbury

PRINCE Charles has an action-packed day lined up as he returns to Dorchester and Poundbury next week.
The Prince of Wales will arrive in town on Wednesday November 21 to open the new Fortuneswell Ward at Dorset County Hospital, his first visit to the Dorchester hospital in over 20 years.
He will then join representatives of Trees for Dorset to plant an oak tree at Middle Farm in Poundbury to mark his mother Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.
The prince will later head to the new anaerobic digester at Rainbarrow Farm just outside Poundbury to meet those involved with the sustainable energy project and open the new facility.

Hmmm… Now I am beginning to understand what drives your thought processes.

As a Republican Aussie now I would normally let that comment go without comment but "fair go mate", Prince Charles has just returned from a busy tour of Australia and New Zealand.

Perhaps whilst Charlie is in the area he can consider how his eco views sit with his ban on the drying of laundry outdoors within his Poundbury? Obviously the use of tumble dryers over washing lines is a waste of electricity, therefore the precious natural resources in producing it.
Also, recently published studies confirm drying clothes indoors is linked to higher rates of asthma & hayfever inducing mould spores....
Or, perhaps if thats a bit too tough for him, he could explain exactly what his & Jimmy Savile's common interests were? .... Afterall, such an unlikely friendship.
Funny isn't it how those in various positions of authority are only interested in how things look on the outside, regardless of the wider implications for others.
Wouldn't want any airing of dirty laundry in public :-D

I'd love to meet him on the 21st Nov and explain to him in words of a few syllables how his development has raped the setting of Dorchester. The town used to nestle comfortably in the folds of the surrounding hills, only announced to visitors by the sight of the Brewery chimney, a water tower and a couple of church spires.The approaches all beautifully contained by avenues of trees. Now from every approach you are presented by an army of Tryffids marching over the former softly contoured hills .......guess I'll never get the chance to look him in the eye.
