    How Bonkers Is Prince Charles?

    Prince Charles has been photographed dozens of times in various pubs, cack-handedly pulling a half of bitter grinning from big ear to big ear. He's also well known for his love of the environment, organic farming, and promotion of all matters green.

    So it seemed a good idea to visit Adnams brewery, to applaud them on their production of the carbon neutral beer East Green.

    It's a great shame therefore that he chose to travel the short distance from Sandringham to Southwold by helicopter, landing a mile from the brewery, and travelling that last few minute by a gas guzzling Jaguar car. A major own goal there your Highness!

    I always thought it was a terribly poor show that old Charlie only ever manages a half while his granny could put away the pints.

    Should he have got the bus? I Suffolk. He'd still be waiting.

    He could have used an eco-friendly car. Gas powered or whatever they are these days.

    BTW Tandleman - I'll be at BSF most of Tuesday and Weds, so will come and say hello. Send me an e-mail or something so I know what will be on your name badge! Cheers

    The sooner we are a republic the better!

    Tandleman you're right about the buses - what are they then?
