But he still hunts a lot (I have no real issue with hunting especially when it's for a species that's overrunning the land, it's sometimes necessary), and just whinges about how George and Charlotte need to see rhinos and elephants which equals his 'conservation work'.

In-season, legal deer stalking in Scotland  and then shooting birds at Sandringham once a year for the purpose of culling --- neither of those things is comparable to hunting rhinos for the horn to sell on the black market!!!!

The birds that are shot at Sandringham are bred specifically for that purpose.  They only need to be "culled" because someone - in the past it was Prince Philip's job to manage their production - ensured there were so many birds there that the needed to be "culled".   Those birds only exist because the royals and their friends enjoy killing them.     

Incidentally, sometimes even elephants need to be culled because their population is too large to be supported on the land where they live because there is not enough food for all of them and if they are all allowed to live there won't be enough food for any of them.  It's a complicated subject. 

The point was that you trying to make the two things comparable is daft. But whatever, carry on with your false equivalencies which make you feel intellectually superior. I'm glad you have your methods of achieving a healthy self-esteem. Peace and blessings. Smiley

OK - well I find hunting for pleasure something that does not accord with my values but accept that others will feel differently. The landed gentry have a history of going down this path .... breeding animals, birds etc for food is IMO different to setting up opportunities for Duke, Lord and Sir Many Acres to host weekends for friends and paying guests to "shoot".

Wildlife management is a different space - IMO more complicated but non unrelated to hunting in as much as many "big game" hunters use it as a validation to be out there. Bottom line - shooters just want the thrill and in environments that don't support this then they look to dress it up as something more acceptable

I find the whole deer stalking and shooting as a sport disgusting.  The breed to kill makes my stomach turn.


No offence Margaret but I haven't heard of elephant culling since the 1970's. I grew up in Africa and visit often. The policy is to move elephants as they are rapidly becoming an endangered species.  However you are right that there was at one point in the past when it was considered necessary. Even in the Kruger National Park.

Culling in Kruger NP didn't stop until the moratorium in 1994.  Before that, since 1967, culling took place to maintain the population at 7,000.  In the 1990s the carrying capacity was estimated at 7,500.   In 2006 the population was about 13,500.  Even the current Kruger NP Elephant Management Plan provides for culling in certain circumstances, though other options are preferred. https://www.southafrica.t...ationalPark_elephants.htm

Doesn't he usually go to rugby things when Wales are playing in Cardiff? It's fun for him so therefore he'll show up!

But has he ever worn a red tie? I only associate literal dressing with Kate.
I think that 30 year from now we will find that Wills is a competent/working king and we will wonder when on earth did that happen.

Baby steps, Wills, baby steps.
