Prince Charles Is Unfit to Be King

We've all done it. Tripped over a suitcase full of a million dollars in cash, gifted

to us by a visiting Qatari dignitary. It is to Prince Charles' credit that, in a fit of

pique, he didn't immediately go out and buy himself a treat to soothe his bruised toe.

The English county of Devon, say. Instead, he handed over the wares to his courtiers for his

charity foundation and got on with whatever heirs to thrones do of an afternoon.

Open a new hospital, bridge or packet of biscuits, depending on the day.

While there is no suggestion of illegality in these shenanigans, they still raise significant questions.

Chief among these: Why this story has appeared now, and who is briefing

against the heir to the British throne? Who does it benefit?
