Is the Prince of Wales fit to be the next king?
The veils, thrown over Prince Charles‘s letters to ministers, from 2004 – 2005, just continues to show how undemocratic our next monarch has become.
His job is to work with the government of the day, not against them!
If Charles wishes to have a political opinion, then he should voice it publicly, and not hide behind disclosure vetoes. (He wants them kept secret forever.)
He should renounce the throne and lobby openly for political office. The next monarch, like the present one, has to play a role of impartiality. As commander of the armed forces, the head of the Church of England, and the figure-head of this country it is more than important for the him to play a neutral role in politics. The king or queen cannot be seen to have a political agenda!
Are we to return to the bad old days of a state-run by the crown? That is truly undemocratic.
If the king-in-waiting abuses his power now, how much further could he take these abuses once he takes the crown? Might he try to sway political opinion his way on anything he disagreed with? Could he even devolve parliament altogether and take their job on his own shoulders?
There is no telling what Charles has in mind. It isn’t, however, upholding the British constitutional laws. (He bent them the moment he became a political animal.) This is not how a British Monarch should behave. As a divorced man he should have given up the throne (a divorcee cannot be the head of the C of E) but the rules have been changed to allow him to stay the king-in-waiting.
Now (using his powers of influence), he is blocking the ruling to disclose these letters to ministers. Is that because it would make his political views public – thereby, rendering him ineligible to take the crown? Or is it something even more unpalatable? Might he be trying to hide just ‘how much’ he has influenced British political policy during 2004-5 (the space of those letters)?
So far, Charles has succeeded in keeping a lid on this political hotpot. But he can’t keep manipulating the facts to suit himself forever.
The true nature of his Highness‘ meddling will come into the light eventually, and I believe it won’t be pretty.
