Well girls and boys, our soon to be King, once Mumsy pops her clogs – and he’s doing his darndest to give her pneumonia – is bored playing I’m Descended from Mohammed and so he’s writing a book on that silly old topic – Climate Change.
It’s a fantasy book, where he pretends Britain’s streets are flooded and that icebergs in the Wash will melt and … oh lots of jolly fun:
Turns out that Penguin actually mean us to take the Prince of Wales’s drivel – co-written with Tony Juniper (formerly head of the hard-left pressure group Friends of the Earth) and Emily Shuckburgh (a scientist wheeled out to promote climate change at every opportunity because she’s at Cambridge and she’s hot) – seriously.
Emily, as you see, is one of the know-nothing generation and eager to prove it, being trotted out at the drop of an anorak at this conference or that but there’s one thing our Emily does have:
She’s hot to trot and isn’t that the only important thing?
So it’s all good old jolly hockey sticks and hope you can go out and buy up all the copies and tell all your friends and all that and to hell with the 52% who don’t buy any of this drivel coz we’re all plebs anyway.
Ladybird have announced their next venture, called King of Europe, featuring pieces by that lovely WMD chappy Tony Bliar and our own Prince Chas. Word is that the foreword has already been written by Phil the Greek:
“They can all sink into the bloody sea as far as I’m concerned and good riddance. Teach ’em a bit of respect for the Firm, that’s what I say.”
A Ladybird spokeswoman who declined to be named suggested there might be an upcoming booklet on Fun Things to do in the Kitchen, by Princess Pippa. Bursting with anticipation.
