Prince Charles: "Don't get ideas above your station"

A sex-discrimination case involving a former member of Prince Charles's household has revealed the astonishing arrogance of Prince Charles.

A memo was presented in which the Prince writes:

"What is wrong with everyone nowadays?"

"Why do they all seem to think they are qualified to do things far beyond their technical capabilities?"

"People think they can all be pop stars, high court judges, brilliant TV personalities or infinitely more competent heads of state without ever putting in the necessary work or having natural ability."

Of course, he has never put in the necessary work to be head of state, since there is none necessary for him.

The Prince's mother is the head of state of the UK. The position is inherited regardless of talent, ability, qualifications or electoral mandate. Prince Charles will inherit the position without any assessment of whether he meets any of these 'qualifications' to be head of state.

So while the Great British public have to work hard to achieve any status or wealth, the Windsors will continue to be given it unconditionally. And they will continue to arrogantly believe in their own 'natural ability' while criticizing the public who have to work for a living.

One can only speculate how far Jug Ears would go as a member of the public in a society based on merit. Jobs for human tampons and translators fluent in silver-birch are rather thin on the ground.
