"Prince Charles says there's 'not a moment to lose' in stamping out poaching"

From The Evening Standard:

Prince Charles united with his two sons today to launch a determined bid to stamp out the illegal wildlife trade in Africa.  He rounded on organised crime and poachers who trespass on others' land.

The prince said: “There is not a moment to lose if we are to protect this valuable source of income for large landowners.

"My forebears introduced capital punishment for poachers and enforced this without mercy. Having removed these people from the gene pool, we can now get away with just about anything.

"We've even conditioned them to bow respectfully when they meet us and address us as "Your Majesty" and so on. 

"Abso-bloody-lutely amazing, when you think about it.”
