Prince scraps visit to Pakistan over security

#1
Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have cancelled a visit to Peshawar because of security fears.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/6100538.stm

The couple were due to visit the Pakistan city, in the North-West Frontier Province, as part of a five-day tour of the country.
But demonstrations are expected after Pakistani forces destroyed an Islamic school near the Afghan border, killing up to 80 suspected militants.
yeh point, no need to give the surviving outraged militants such an obvious high profile target to try fresh jihadi on.
mybe he would be safe enough if he had another rottweiler?

I guess Bliar and the wife should go over instead, they could go chat to the people of Peshawa,
he could explain why it happened in the name of making the world a safer place and she as the human rights lie-adjuster, sry, laywer, could take on all the claims against Bae if it turns out the missiles were made in the UK.


'shake a paw!............ good girl'

Just following FCO advice. Sensible in my view.

He's visiting Newport in South Wales soon. Far more dangerous than Pakistan.

There's a good chance some Chav will have his mobile phone off him, and his Tom Tom will be stolen from his Range Rover by a Burberry clad thief on a stolen BMX.

At least if he gets hungry he'll be able to enjoy the local delecasy:- Cheese and Chips (dog egg). No doubt he'll have an opportunity to purchase some reading material for the trip home from one of the many Big Issue salesman dotted around the place.

For a man who wishes to be "Defender of the Faiths" he seems strangely reluctant to intereact with certain members of the "religion of peace!"

On a personal note, I'm due to deploy to Afghanistan in the near future, however having taken note of security considerations I have decided to cancel.

Only north of the M4 mate, anywhere south and you're an instant victim of crime.
