In Todays Independent Janet Street Porter wrote To put this in context (since the bulk of the article is restricted to paying users) the article basically bemoans Prince Charles "choice" of training for the future king(s). She thinks that they would be better off getting work experience with Rocco Forte or Richard Branson instead of being Recce Troopies or whatever William will post as. Basically she believes that being an Army Officer is all watching men form up by twos as the essay in the Sandhurst Blue describes it. Now this is her opinion and although I disagree with it she can write whatever she sees fit. It is after all a comment piece. (It would be fun to see her be sent on say the TACC. Now there reality TV I'd pay to see.) However the quote above seems to strike a very odd note. Is this really the perception of people or is it just a throw away remark. Has she not been paying attention to the news footage for the last few years? Granted there have been moments of high-techery but most of what I've seen and heard of seems to be a bit more traditional than that. Any other comments?
