    Indeed he does. I don't think he or the rest of the monarchy have any right to make unfounded attacks on academia, especially when all he and queen do is sit and eat potatoes all day. Down with the monarchy - is that treason?

    I can't believe people even bother to listen to him. What scientific qualifications does he have? He's a complete muppet.

    I remember when we went to a Nottingham Uni Physics open day sometime last year, the professor who gave the lecture spent about 10 minutes telling us what we would study if we went there, and 20 minutes ranting about how stupid Charlie was.

    Prince Charles studied NatSci at Cambridge I think. Although he only got in because of his family by all accounts.

    It was english literature I think. He really is completely undeserving of that as well. Got a 2:2 and his bodyguards, who all had to take the course as well, all got higher degrees than him.

    Hes an inbread tosser (pardon my french). I don't give a damn what he says really. Any one who is anti-science can go and live in a cave without the technology tha science has created.

    I liked the letter he got from a scientist though, "with respect, Charlie, you know as much about science as a upturned tortoise. We, on the other hand, have over 40 years experience, so in future stick with opening new branches of Waitrose"

    Or words to that effect.

    Well, the British Royal Family isn't known for producing great intellects...at least not recently. Charles is no exception...it's a shame the "proper" subjects for them to study are Arts subjects...they might be a bit more liberal if they took some interest in science (at least William was sensible, he did Biology).

    Nothing wrong with not studying science, if you're not interested in it (doesn't matter who you are).

    Course...but most royal families are too biased towards subjects like history.

    Yes, but not just that. But the royals and I don't exactly see eye-to-eye on most things.
