Juan Carlos Borbón, head of the Spanish Borbón clan and known as the king of that country, has apologised to the people of Spain for his elephant-hunting trip to Africa. Mr. Borbón had been widely criticised for the visit after he had claimed that the hard times faced by the Spanish people were keeping him awake at night. The usual arrogance of so-called monarchs had to be held in check, however, when Borbón said “I'm very sorry and it won't happen again”.
Borbón denied that the holiday had cost the people anything. Apparently it was paid for a Syrian business person closely associated with the defence minister of Saudi Arabia. The minister was closely involved with the awarding the biggest ever overseas contract won by a Spanish company. It was for a train service between Mecca and Medina.
The British Windsor family is not known to have apologised to the British people for continuing to take many millions of pounds from their pockets every year to finance a way of life that exceeds that of the most avaricious bankers while taxes are raised, public services cut and salaries held down.Posted by Centre for Citizenship at April 24, 2012 06:36 PM
