Prince Charles’ accession to the throne following the Queen’s death. When he refuses to sign a controversial bill into law, political chaos ensues: a constitutional crisis, rioting on the streets and a tank in front of Buckingham Palace.
Well done the BBC for another fantastic production. Based on the excellent play by Mike Bartlet, it is a wonderful, a bit Shakespearean, drama.
I think Prince Charles gets a lot of flak in the news, but I don’t think he is anything like they show him on screen. I find him eccentric and thoughtful. When the Guardian published his “Blackspider Memos”, I thought he came across quite kind hearted. I too care for organic farming AND the albatross! Princes Charles does have a history of meddling, but as King, would he refuse to give Royal Assent to a Bill? I hope not…
You wouldn’t be going around talking about taking these stupid shop courses if I was. It’s like God gave you something man, all those stories you can make up. And He said, “this is what we got for ya kid, try not to lose it.” Kids lose everything unless there’s someone there to look out for them. And if your parents are too fucked up to do it, then maybe I should!
