Prince Charles is very much like dis dad—he says what he thinks, often causing embarrassment to those who easily succumbed to that state. The fact that he is heir to the British throne doesn’t seem to come not it—he keeps on keeping on. IN ay ways, that is what I like about him. Yeah—I know—one in his ‘position’ should be a little more diplomatic’ and swallow his real feelings. I say—no. Maybe we need to hear what someone in a high position really thinks and to hell with all the ‘aspects of diplomacy’ that often hinder honest discussion. Putin is a bully and he does keep the lid on any new-found-short-tem-freedoms,’ in Russia. He is a leader on a mission to re-invent the old Soviet Union, at least as far as its reach went! So---good you Prince Charles—tell it like it is. Putin is behaving in a similar manner to Hitler, minus some of the more extreme bits. He is fermenting a situation whereby he can go in and rescue those’ Russian-speaking minorities,’ all in the name of Russian expansionism. Keep up the good work, Prince Charles and if we are lucky, the next in line to the ‘throne’ will carry on in the same manner. This is the real world—not the imaginary ‘Game of Thrones’ as seen on TV!
