The Windsors have been quietly 'green' for decades, long before it became fashionable to the plebs in Parliament. Remember how the tabloids sneered at Charles' organic gardening at Highgrove and his 'talking to the flowers'? Not laughing now that the bloody Arctic is melting, are they?
Isn't the Queen your boss, Ken?
Wood work but can't!

Yep you are right. The Queen is my boss Got a badge to prove it (Got the golden jubilee medal. For working for her more than 5 years previous to 2002)
What supprises me is our jail is undergoing a major refit. Old accomidiation blocks demolished new ones going up. (doubling capacity of inmates to 670) New office block and new hospital block, but where are the solar pannels? or the wind turbines? None installed
Staff are to get a new gymnasium and canteen, but they are taking away the sauna. Becouse it is not energy efficent so it does not meet goverment policy. Sory getting on my high horse again.
I just thought it was good to see someone with a high puplic profile actualy standing up and doing something. I would not consider myself to be a "Royalist" but credit where credit is due.
If the thought should ever cross the Brit consciousness of changing our Queen for the delights of a "Republic", all I ask is that we all imagine the following possible future 'Presidents of Britain':- Tony Wedgewood Benn John Prescott [ 2 Rollers! ] Boy George Dianne Abbott Harry Enfield David Beckham Tony Bliar Lulu Andrew Lloyd Webber The Krankies David Mellor John Major Sooty, And me!!

Ken, thanks for the link, it looks like you are enjoying Princess Annes visit, [ if your hands are anything to go by ], but I bet your superiors were nervous at the prospect of her inspecting the works with her rep for straight talking!
As 'President Al' I would get Tesco to run the Health Service and reduce Government to a Complaints Box. I'm in Gloucestershire now, on a rare visit to the UK. I might pop over to visit His Nibs this afternoon about my ideas on flogging newspaper editors for high treason.
A nice weekend to all my minions, especially in our Dominions and Colonies,
