Charles and Camilla

Up until now, the blog has kept silent on the upcoming wedding of Britain's Prince of Wales to Camilla Parker-Bowles. But the mean-spirited venom it has aroused disgusts us. This venom partly emanates from the enmity of UK mass-market tabloid the Sun and the dumbed-down (London) Times.

Both of these downmarket titles are owned by Rupert Murdoch, the anti-royalist billionaire known as the "Dirty Digger" in the UK. The "Dirty Digger" also owns Fox in the USA. No opportunity is lost to mock and belittle the royal family, and Prince Charles' current difficulties present an easy target.

The "Digger" is much richer and more powerful than Prince Charles. Having inherited vast wealth from his Australian father, Murdoch augmented his pile by debasing the UK media, pandering to the lowest populist instincts. Few will raise their voices against a man so powerful in the media world, and so vindictive in his petty spite.

This blog always sides with the weak against those who bully, intimidate and humiliate them. In this case, we strongly encourage Rupert Murdoch to order his tanks off Prince Charles' lawn. Failure to comply will result in the calling down of the Curse of Von Esens on the tycoon's head.
