One of the headless chickens speaks out

The irrepressible Lord Monkton issues a challenge to His Royal Horse-face, Prince Charles.
You got your science and economics wrong. And you were rude as well. And you took sides in politics. Constitutionally, that’s a no-no. Thronewise, mate, you’ve blown it.

On the other hand, we Brits are sport-mad. So here is option 2. I am going to give you a sporting second chance, Charlie, baby.

You see, squire, you are no longer above politics. You’ve toppled off your gilded perch and now you’re in it up to your once-regal neck. So, to get you used to the idea of debating on equal terms with your fellow countrymen, I’m going to give you a once-in-a-reign opportunity to win back your Throne in a debate about the climate. The motion: “Global warming is a global crisis.” You say it is. I say it isn’t.
Read on, and be glad that the era of the absolute power of kings is long gone (now all we have to worry about is the absolute power of presidents).

"Prince" Charles is as much a horse's ass, as he is a horse face.

Finished that for you.

Chazza won't do it. Even his dim mind can comprehend that Lord Monckton would make mincemeat of him.

William for king!

Monckton actually said 'Thronewise, mate, you’ve blown it.' I thought that was a casual translation of more formal speech, but no!
