Palace needs new prophecy of doom

Prince Charles and his adviser Jonathon Porritt have a visceral loathing for the modern agricultural methods which made food cheaper for the world’s teeming masses.

This is because they have long expressed the gloomy Malthusian view that there are far too many people and that “Something Must Be Done”.

Their chums Zheng Xiaoying and Cai Feng of the Chinese Population Institute propose that we follow a one-child policy backed by enforced abortions.

But birth-rates are falling dramatically across the world and none of the 23 European countries with fertility above replacement 30 years ago now have such rates.

Coming on top of the exposure of all sorts of jiggery-pokery in his global warming thingy, this has been a bad year for the Prince and his doomster courtiers.
