GREEN WITH HYPOCRISY

A political storm is brewing over Prince Charles plans to build a mini Poundury on green fields outside Truro.

CCN broke the news of the Duchy’s scheme last year.

Charles wants to build a housing estate – including a supermarket that will market his ‘Duchy Original’ biscuits – in the Tregurra Valley.

Since then Charles has started laying down his feudal claim to mining rights around St Day.

Nationalist group the Celtic League have instructed a local independent solicitor, to take up the cudgels against the Prince’s ‘bullying’ behaviour.

Now protest is springing up around Charles ‘Truro Poundbury’ plan – with waves of dissent on social media and angry protest signs flagging the marked site.

Local comic ‘Kernow King’ Ed Rowe has voiced his dissent on social media, and talk is growing of protest.

Nationalist campaigner Mike Chappell said: “Many are saying it is time we stopped waving the little flags and cheering this man and his second wife on and stood up to him!

“Cornwall is our land, not his!”

    These bluebloods have taken enough from the people, their reign is coming to an end, the people should not be funding their luxurious lifestyles anymore, power to the people, we have to stand up and stop this monarchy taking whatever they want and make them give back the wealth they have stolen from the hard working people!!!

    What a horrible man this Charles is. It is no wonder that more and more despise this hypocrite. When he and that awful wife of his next come to visit their feudal holdings in Cornwall, I trust people turn their backs on them.

    Isn’t the same thing happening between Newquay, Quintrell Downs and Trencreek? Good farming land being built upon. Who will live in these houses and what jobs will they do?

    Hardly boring Adam unless one has only a limited attention span! In an article elsewhere, we read of Charles wishes to exploit mineral rights beneath freeholder’s property. And even less boring when you have to queue even longer at the doctor’s, in shops, a lack of school places and so on due to exploitation by the Duke!
