  • Blue bloods: Prince Charles joins campaign to save Transylvania's forests - because of his family connections to 'Count Dracula'
    covered Britain He claims a family connection to the area through Vlad III Prince of Wallachia who earned the sobriquet Vlad the Impaler thanks to his favoured method of torture and execution The 15th century nobleman notorious for his bloodthirsty campaigns against the Ottomans and fierce repression of his people is a distant ancestor of Charles s great grandmother Queen Mary The total number of his victims is estimated in the tens of thousands many killed by being impaled on huge metal stakes His reputation for cruelty is said to have helped inspire Bram Stoker s diabolical villain Count Dracula In a new documentary about the Carpathian mountains Charles makes fun of his ancestral links to Count Dracula The genealogy shows I am descended from Vlad the Impaler so I do have a bit of a stake in the country he quipped The Prince has recently bought a five bedroom house in the village of Zalanpatak which is said to have been founded by one of his Transylvanian ancestors Charles is expected to use the 150 year old home as an isolated holiday retreat and it will be used as a guesthouse when he is not in residence The Prince first visited Transylvania in 1998 and has bought three properties there including the Zalanpatak house and a 43 a night guesthouse in the village of Viscri Traditional farming and building techniques used in the area are said to have inspired his plans for Poundbury the Dorset village created by his Duchy of Cornwall He has since sold a manor near the medieval town of Sighisoara while the Viscri and Zalanpatak guesthouses are managed by Count Tibor Kalnoky It seems to me in Transylvania there is a combination of the natural ecosystem with a human cultural system the prince told the

  • Royal Family granted new right of secrecy
    Parliament s Public Accounts Committee PAC told The Independent I m astonished that the Government should find time to seek to cover up royal finances When I was on the PAC what we wanted was more disclosure not less Every time we examined royal finances we found extravagance and indulgence as well as abuse of expenses by junior royals Everywhere we looked there were savings to be made for the Government This sends the wrong message about public disclosure and accountability Paul Flynn another member of the committee described the special protection for the Royals as indefensible He said I don t think it serves the interests of the public or the Royal Family very well Mr Frankel said he believed that Prince Charles was the driving force behind the new law The heir to the throne has written letters to government departments in an attempt to influence policy he said He clearly does not want these to get into the public domain Later this month lawyers for the Cabinet Office backed by Prince Charles will go to court to continue to resist Freedom of Information requests of ministers to publish letters written to them by the Prince of Wales A spokesman for Buckingham Palace said that the change to the law was necessary because the Freedom of Information Act had failed to protect the constitutional position of the monarch and the heir to the throne He explained that the sovereign has the right and duty to be consulted to encourage and warn the government and by extension the heir to the throne had the constitutional right and duty to prepare himself for the role of King This constitutional position relies on confidentiality so that all such correspondence remains confidential he said But he said that change would also mean that correspondence not covered by the absolute exemption would be made public 10 years earlier than under the current disclosure rules The Palace s position was backed by Professor Vernon Bogdanor research professor at King s College London He told The Independent The essence of constitutional monarchy is that the Queen and other members of the Royal Family remain politically neutral The Queen meets the Prime Minister once a week when both are in London to discuss government policy The heir to the throne has the right and perhaps the duty to question ministers on policy so as to prepare himself for the throne Such discussions are only possible if they remain confidential Otherwise the neutrality of the Queen and of the Prince of Wales could be undermined When the Queen meets the Prime Minister no one else is present not even the Queen s Private Secretary For this reason it is right that the Royal Family should be exempt from FOI The Government claimed that the thrust of the changes announced yesterday would make it easier for people to use FOI to find and use information about the public bodies they rely on and their taxes pay for The

  • Australian governor general dismissed PM despite his majority in lower house
    nation The governor general presides over the swearing in of the prime minister the chief justice and cabinet ministers One of the governor general s most important responsibilities is to ensure that the country always has a prime minister and a government in place But in practice the job is usually understood to be a ceremonial one conducted on the advice of the sitting government Thus the speech from the throne is delivered to parliament by the governor general but is actually written by the government In the Australian case however Kerr intervened directly in the political process invoking rarely used powers to bring down the government and dissolve Parliament Whitlam s Labor government had a majority in the lower House of Representatives but the Senate was controlled by the opposition Liberal Country Party coalition Fraser was the Liberal leader In October 1975 the opposition accused the government of financial irregularities and held up passage of budgetary legislation in the Senate hoping to force the government to call an election The deadlock went on for weeks and Whitlam s government faced the prospect of running out of money The crisis culminated in Kerr s dramatic intervention after earlier attempts at proposing compromises There were suggestions that Kerr acted to pre empt any move by Whitlam to replace him as governor general Whitlam became the only Australian prime minister with a majority in the lower house to be removed from office The dismissal rocked Australia and the Commonwealth and prompted a firestorm of criticism that it was an affront to democracy Whitlam ran for re election largely on a campaign taking Fraser to task for benefiting from the dismissal Fraser highlighted management of economic affairs When the election was held in December Australian voters gave Fraser s coalition a resounding majority
