Prince Charles and Gordon Brown were accused last night of ‘green hypocrisy’ after jetting into Copenhagen to lecture the world about global warming.
Charles used the £1,019-an-hour Queen’s Flight so he could deliver a keynote speech to the climate change conference, flying back after less than three hours. The Prime Minister chartered a 185-seat Airbus to take him and 20 aides to Denmark for their four-day trip. By using private planes, both Charles and Mr Brown produced more carbon emissions – which is blamed for global warming – than would have been generated by taking a scheduled flight.
WHAT A COUPLE OF GREEN CHARLIES!
