Extract from a Telegraph article.

"The Prince of Wales has hired one of the world's most expensive private yachts to sail round the Caribbean - as a cost-cutting measure."

Not quite the case.............I believe the British taxpayer is financing it. I suppose we should be grateful he didn't go for anything too fancy.

I sailed round the Caribbean a little while ago on my yacht. If he'd asked I'd have been happy for him to come along.

Probably not as good as his, but here's mine click here

As far as I can tell, the Telegraph is now just a broadsheet Daily Mail for those who can't bare to buy a tabloid for their daily dose of FUD (fear, uncertainty & doubt)

Quote from the Times article....

"Climate change will be high on the agenda, with Caribbean islands especially vulnerable and in the forefront of hurricanes."

Charles shouldn't have the nerve to preach to anyone regarding carbon footprints.

As for the Times sticking pretty close to the facts........would these be the facts as spun out by the Palace press office by any chance?
