LONDON, May 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Some UK politicians say Prince Charles should abdicate the throne and stand for an election if he wants to express his political views, local media reported.
Prince Charles’ remarks about Russian President Vladimir Putin have sparked great controversy both in the UK and Russia.
Sir Tony Brenton, who served as British Ambassador to Russia in 2004-2008, told the BBC, “You can’t be much more insulting about a Russian than to compare him to Hitler, who killed 26 million Russians.”
Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party, says Prince Charles was wrong in his comparisons. Farage went on to blame the EU and NATO for expansionist policy in Eastern Europe.
Labor MP Mike Gapes also commented on Prince Charles’ comparison, “If he wishes to be in public life speaking out, saying what he thinks on every issue then unfortunately he should abdicate and stand for election.” Gapes also stressed that he thinks the British monarchy should be seen and not heard. He said the “freedom of speech argument” does not apply to Prince Charles.
