Prince Charles launches campaign to save Fish and Chips
Telegraph.co.uk ^ | Saturday 04 August 2012 | unattributed

Posted on 08/03/2012 6:15:42 PM PDT by SunkenCiv

The Prince of Wales has launched a campaign to save the future of fish and chips as he warned of the "dire" consequences of over-fishing.

"Global fish stocks are deteriorating and we cannot ignore the fact, merely carrying on as if it is business as usual," the Prince said.

In a speech to representatives of the worldwide fishing industry at the World Fisheries Congress in Edinburgh, the Prince reminisced about how he escaped from school at Gordonstoun to buy fish and chips in Inverness.

But he said a meal we take for granted will be off the menu in future without long-term management of fish stocks and better scientific research...

The Prince, who is known as the Duke of Rothesay north of the border, used his speech to highlight the work of his International Sustainability Unit, which has set up a marine research programme to identify ways that fish stocks can be managed in such a way that there are more fish, more jobs and better economic returns.

He pointed out that the cod stock in the North Sea, which had become severely depleted through over-fishing, has doubled in size over the past six years thanks to strict fishing quotas and other management techniques, but elsewhere in the world fish stocks were still shrinking.

He said: "If fish stocks fail, then the social and economic consequences will be dire. Just think of all those thousands of coastal communities in Africa and around the world whose livelihoods and futures depend on fish - where will they go, what will they do? How would escalating conflict over scarce resources be contained?

"Global fish stocks are deteriorating and we cannot ignore the fact, merely carrying on as if it is business as usual."

Surely, the British Empire has more pressing concerns than fish and chips not being on the menu.

A game of now you see it, now you don’t.

He must have escaped from a mental institution, not one of higher learninfg, else he’d know the fish in British ‘fish and chips’ is not cod, but dogfish - a type of small, very prolific, bottom-feeding shark.

Just found this by mistake on the net:

http://discuss.glasgowguide.co.uk/lofiversion/index.php/t21014.html

“If you jump the Norther Korean border illegally, you may end up with up to 12 years hard labour.

If you cross the Afghanistan border illegally, you may get shot or worse, bushwhacked up them breas, an ye ken with they dea to sheep there?! Tomi is that you packing yer holdall, mind pack yer wellies...

So far so good, that’s fair enough.

No like many fowks wid want to do that anywi’, as these welcoming, aspiring countries do not have the generous benefit packages that HM Gov.con bestows on our “Visitors”

Right then, if anywan enters the UK illegally they may be entitled to the following:-

* A job.
* A driver’s license.
* Food stamps.
* A place to live.
* Free health care.
* Free housing and child benefits.
* Free education.
* Tax free business for 7 years.

This list is NOT intended to be exhaustive, please help yerselfs to whateffer ye fancy.

Are we a richt bunch o’ glaikit haddies or just open hearted, gushing philanthropists?”

heheh. So Prince Charlie, what about them apples?

I guess Prince Jughead couldn’t stand the thought that Harry Reid might surpass him for the title of Most Ridiculous Person on Earth, so he came up with this.

Understandable, really. That title is the one thing in life that he’s earned.

"fish in British ‘fish and chips’ is not cod, but dogfish" Like Nancy Pelosi commenting on KFC peasant chow ("It's chicken, isn't it? Fried?"), for Chuck `fish is fish'. And as another freeper noted, his eyes are so close together he can see through a knothole and retain full depth perception.

How this PC Fop is Harry’s father is beyond me.

If the Queen really understood the long-term problems facing England, she would immediately abdicate in favor of Harry.

And then if Harry really understood the long-term problems facing England, he would then immediately move to set things right.

Absent both of those things, England is finished.

You don’t need cod to make good fish & chips; walleye is even better.

I’ve come to think northern pike are even better then walleye. There seems to be more flavor.

Course, any fish that was wriggling 10 minutes before you throw it into the pan is indescribably good.

“You don’t need cod to make good fish & chips; walleye is even better.”

Aye to the Walleye. I worked for some time in Port Clinton, Ohio...and they had this little fish and chips place that had Walleye that was to die for. I still dream about it. I am very particular about my fish and chips. The only thing I hate about where I live (Reno) is that there is not one place in the entire city that has even passable fish and chips. (yeah, I know, not close to the ocean...but there are 30 all you can eat sushi restaurants here, and a very good percentage of them are beyond excellent).

From what I can tell, William isn't too bad, but Great Britain needs someone with real grit, and that's Harry.

In the long run, Harry, William, it doesn't matter. Charles will fritter away any slim chance to set things right long before either son gets a chance.

By the way, since I'm sure you are more knowledgeable about the subject than I am, I have a question for you.

Let's just suppose Elizabeth abdicated in favor of Harry. What could a King Harry really do? Does he have any real power to pull GB back from the brink, besides giving a speech or two?

Its Charles—William-—William and Kate’s first child.

Only if (god forbid) William and Kate were to die without issue, would Harry take the throne.

The fish in ‘fish and chips’ can be a lot of types of fish, including cod, but in my experience is usually haddock...
