Hey Prince Chuckles, put on you royal purple overalls and get down on your royal knees and start picking some lettuce.


Prince Charles wants furloughed workers to pick fruit and vegetables

(CNN)The UK's Prince Charles has called on students and furloughed workers to pick fruit and vegetables to plug shortages in the labor market caused by the coronavirus pandemic.\

In a video posted to Twitter, Charles, the heir to the British throne, asked people to take on the "unglamorous" task of picking fruit and vegetables to help farmers.
"At this time of great uncertainty, many of our normal routines and regular patterns of life are being challenged," he said to the camera, promoting the UK government's Pick For Britain campaign, which is seeking to recruit students or people who have been furloughed.

"If we are to harvest British fruit and vegetables this year, we need an army of people to help," he said.

The Duke of Cornwall, 71, compared would-be pickers to the Land Army of World War II, where women and girls volunteered or were conscripted into undertaking agricultural work after many men left the country to fight.

"In the coming months, many thousands of people will be needed to bring in the crops. It will be hard graft but is hugely important if we are to avoid the growing crops going to waste," he said.



A few weeks ago, they were engineers, chefs and waitresses. Now they're farming


While the prince conceded that the work would be "unglamorous" and "at times, challenging," he told viewers it was of the "utmost importance" during the coronavirus pandemic.

The royal tested positive for coronavirus in March, and has since left self-isolation in good health after consulting with a doctor.

Coronavirus travel restrictions have led to a labor crisis for British agricultural sectors that traditionally rely on seasonal migrant workers from Europe.

The UK government has previously said it is working with the industry to help fill what the National Farmers' Union estimates is around 70,000 seasonal worker roles.

Welcome to our 'new normal', same as the 'old normal'.

This future King is also looking for volunteers to help pick cotton in Georgia.

They shall be called HEROS of the Empire



Thank you Your Highness, can we have another?

I'm not sure what the proper response of the Brits would be to Prince Charles, either "bugger off" or "piss off ya poof".

How about hanging the useless son of a bitch? With a slow drop.

He, or the government he represents, DESTROYS the economy for these poor sods; and then, as they complain - BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO CONTINUE TO WORK, and government destroyed their jobs...he orders them out in the fields, like Georgia slaves.

The correct response here, is work - picking ROYALS and separating them from their heads. And not quickly with a gibbet - as painfully as possible.

And I don't give a great goddamn if that Queen Hag is in her nineties. I don't give a goddamn if she was an ambulance driver in the 1940s, in the war. That was then. Benedict Arnold fought a few great fights to victory before turning traitor, too.

HANG THEM ALL.
