Prince Andrew cancels visit to Blackburn’s Green College because helicopter won’t fly
“Due to ‘adverse weather conditions’ The Duke’s helicopter is unable to take off from London this morning.”
Indeed. Air Miles Andy was heading to a meeting a Nelson & Colne college. It’s message:
We believe that it is vital to promote a “green” ethos amongst our students and staff. The College’s Sustainability Group has worked hard to raise awareness of the environmental issues we face, and the whole College has agreed challenging, but achievable goals to reduce our carbon footprint, now and in future years – targets which are already being exceeded.
As a reader asks: “Why can’t he get the train like everyone else? Especially since he’s visiting a college that seems proud of its ‘green’ ethos.”
Maybe it’s because he’s a feckless hypocrite?
