They may as well have said "Sod Off" from day one but instead opted to pretend there is freedom of information in the UK.
When all legal channels failed they still managed to block the request.
"UK Attorney General Dominic Grieve has blocked the release of private letters the Prince of Wales sent to seven government departments." reported the BBC in 2012.
Yes that says it all. The decision of the court was overruled shamelessly. The reason given is that the letters were part of the Prince's "preparations for kingship". A waffle statement for interfering in Government we suppose. Grieve went on to say that releasing such letters would undermine the Prince and his role.
Doesn't Grieve realise that interfering and managing to block such letters undermines his position far more?
Grieve said, "The ability of the Monarch to engage with the government of the day, whatever its political colour, and maintain political neutrality is a cornerstone of the UK's constitutional framework."
Poppycock. It is obvious that the Prince has been speaking out of turn otherwise these letters would be splashed here, there and everywhere.
The letters that were requested were to the "Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, the Department of Health, the Department for Children, Schools and Families (which is now the Department for Education), the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, the Northern Ireland Office and the Cabinet Office."
Why is Charles running scared and how much have the Royals "interfered" with Government business down the years? That's what we would like to know but will we ever know for sure?
Watch this space as on Thursday March 26 the supreme court’s judgment on whether the government unlawfully blocked the publication of a series of secret letters written by Prince Charles is due to be made public - Guardian
Will transparency benefit the Price's standing? Secret political letters may damage that whether they are released or not.
Thursday March 26, 2015
BBC News reports "The Supreme Court says letters by Prince Charles to the government can be published, after a Guardian campaign.
The UK's highest court was asked to judge whether the Attorney General's office acted unlawfully when it prevented their publication in 2012.
The newspaper sought disclosure of the letters, written to seven government departments between 2004-5.
The prince's office at Clarence House said it was "disappointed the principle of privacy had not been upheld"."
The government said Thursday they used the Royal veto to protect the prince's letters and are disappointed that has been overruled. They will now look at tightening rules regarding the Freedom of Information Act, in effect killing it.
If the prince is acting in an appropriate manner what does he have to fear from the release of his letters?
It remains to be seen just what is released and what remains hidden.
Opinion: As a British citizen and a member of the electorate I am disappointed to learn that the Prince has been secretly interfering in government for sometime.
