Not many wealthy people are as philanthropic as he is. The spectacle of MPs baying for the Prince's blood over his income from the Duchy this week sickened me. Labour woo celebrity, commerce and industry with promises of no tax increases yet display venomous envy of the Prince who has helped countless people of all ages through patronage of the Prince's Trust and in so many ways.
It would bring nothing to this country to have a president in the mould of Thatcher or Blair. Heaven forbid that we move towards giving more power to those who may be fiscally irresponsible and morally bankrupt, yet quick to blame and scapegoat.
