Roger and Out
The Moose has been alerted to the actions of certain unemployed members of the Royal Family. It seems Prince Charles has thrown his hat into the architectural ring concerning the new development at Chelsea Barracks. Lord Rogers of Corderoy, the famed builder of glass and steel is whinging. His Lego development has been rejected by the developers. The Qatari royal family. Now it seems to me Mr Rogers is on rather dodgy ground. He abhors the royal family's intervention but accepts royal patronage when it starts giving out gongs. You can't have it both ways. If, by accepting an honour which legitimses the establishment you're now attacking, don't get all agitated when a member of the Saxe Coburg Gotha family uses that privelege to throw a spanner into your architectural dreams.
