On August 14, 2013 the Regional Court of Cologne 
announced its judgment in the main proceedings 
brought by the WWF against the WDR and the SWR. 
With the lawsuit, the WWF wanted to prevent 
further broadcast of the centerpiece of the film 
(20m45s), the interview with the head of WWF's 
biomass section, Dörte Bieler. According to WWF, 
Huismann conducted the interview with the help of 
"fraudulent misrepresentation". The application 
was dismissed, the WWF was made to pay the costs 
of the proceedings. More on the case at www.wilfried-huismann.de
On September 26, 2012 a ruling by the same court 
lifted 'WWF Silence of the Pandas' from all 
injunctions that WWF made against the film.

The WWF is the largest environmental protection 
organisation in the world. Trust in its green 
projects is almost limitless. Founded in 1961, it 
is the most influential lobby group for the 
environment in the world, thanks largely to its 
excellent contacts in both the political and 
industrial spheres. Behind the organisation’s 
eco-façade, the documentary maker uncovered 
explosive stories from all around the world.
A year in the making, this film is a journey into 
the heart of the green empire and may shatter 
public faith in the panda forever.

In October 2012 the Otto Brenner Foundation 
handed director and winner of three Grimme awards 
Wilfried Huismann the Otto Brenner Preis for 
'critical journalism'. According to the jury the 
work is 'a sustained glimpse into the complex and 
obscure work of the most powerful conservation 
organisation in the world' and 'a strong piece of journalism.'

Just before Johann Hari was sacked from the Independent he penned this article

Johann Hari: Spare us the fawning over Prince Philip
When Elizabeth became the Queen, he was forced to 
quit his job in the Navy, and became depressed for months
Johann Hari - Friday 10 June 2011

Is there a more consistently hilarious sight in 
Britain than the endless parade of slavering 
monarchists trying to convince us the Windsor 
family is the embodiment of virtue and hard work? 
Today is the 90th birthday of Philip Mountbatten. 
Ordinarily, I would wish him a happy day, as I 
would any other 90-year-old, and then let the 
event pass in silence – if only the monarchists 
were not so relentlessly using the event as yet 
another propaganda tool for their snobbery-soaked 
institution. But we can't let yet another bout of 
their myth-making pass without answer.

Today, you are being encouraged to celebrate a 
man who merrily visited a genocidal dictator and 
used the occasion to sneer at British democracy. 
A man whose political interventions even prompted 
complaints from the far-right Enoch Powell. A man 
who, at the height of mass unemployment, mocked 
the unemployed, while complaining his own family 
of multi-millionaires was financially deprived. A 
man who has shot countless examples of endangered 
species – and then sought praise for his protection of wildlife.

But let's start with the myth. Monarchists feel 
the need to claim that the Windsors are somehow 
more worthy than the rest of us, but this is 
difficult, since they consist merely of whoever 
randomly emerges from a royal womb, and whoever 
that package of DNA and unearned privilege then 
chooses to marry. Windsors are thrown up by 
chance, and must have imaginary merits thrust 
upon them. You can see how hard this is by 
reading the moist panegyric written by the 
conservative commentator Peter Oborne last week. 
He said Philip is "colossally important" 
because... um... Well, he said, he represents 
continuity. That's true. If you gave my father a 
job for life from which he couldn't be fired and 
a slew of golden palaces to live in, he'd 
represent continuity too. So would yours. So would literally anyone in Britain.

The pickings then got even slimmer. Oborne 
claimed Philip should be lauded because he has 
"never once caused... embarrassment". And "there 
has never been the slightest hint of scandal". 
No, really. He wrote that. So let's look at the 
things Oborne and the monarchists believe are not 
embarrassing or scandalous in any way.

[b]Alfredo Stroessner was one of the most vicious 
dictators of the 20th-century. He seized power in 
Paraguay in a coup d'état, and set about 
kidnapping and torturing anybody who objected, 
ending up facing charges of genocide from the UN. 
At the height of the terror, Philip visited the 
country – paid for by your taxes – and told the 
beaming tyrant: "It's a pleasant change to be in 
a country that isn't ruled by its people." The 
torture chambers were crammed and screaming less 
than a mile away. This wasn't seen as a joke by 
Stroessner. No wonder that – as Francis Wheen's 
fascinating history Strange Days Indeed shows – 
when far right-wingers and establishment grandees 
responded to instability in Britain in the 1970s 
by mooting a military coup, they intended Philip 
to be the figurehead of their junta. (Nothing is 
known of his feelings about this.)[/b]

Philip has his own taste for killing, although on 
a thankfully smaller scale. Throughout his life 
he has taken great pleasure in slaughtering 
endangered species with highly sophisticated 
nervous systems and a strong capacity to feel 
pain, just for fun. For example, on one shooting 
trip alone in the late 1960s, he personally 
killed a tiger, a crocodile and a rhinoceros. 
Before anybody writes in to say that standards 
were different then, look up the press clippings: 
people were disgusted at the time. Yet in their 
list of reasons to admire Philip, monarchists 
always list his "commitment to protecting 
wildlife" as symbolic head of the World Wildlife 
Fund (WWF). It's enough to make a rhinocerous 
laugh – if only Philip hadn't shot it first.

Philip doesn't have much pity for the sentient 
beings he shoots, but he does have quite a lot 
for himself. In an interview in 1970, he 
complained that the Windsors were suffering 
unacceptable financial pressures, and warned of 
catastrophes to come. He might, he warned with a 
pained expression, have to give up polo. And – 
the agony only grows – "We may need to move into 
smaller premises, who knows?" He didn't say which 
of the four massive palaces he occupies might 
have had to be downsized, or whether he might 
have had to abandon the fully stocked barbers' 
shop reserved entirely for his personal use.

However Philip has also denied that anybody in 
Britain is poor. When unemployment surged in the 
early 1980s to levels not seen since the 1930s, 
he jeered: "Everyone was saying we must have more 
leisure. Now they are complaining they are unemployed."

To be fair, in case anybody thinks this is 
snobbery, Philip extends this callousness to his 
own children. When Philip and Elizabeth's 
youngest son was five years old, they abandoned 
him to nannies so they could tour Australia for 
six months, and when they returned, the tiny 
child was forced to wait in line to shake his parents' hand.

But, wait. There is a sympathetic explanation for 
some of Philip's horrible behaviour. There are 
many good reasons to oppose the idea of monarchy 
in the 21st-century, and one is that, by 
stripping them of any ability to make their own 
choices, it curdles the family at its core.

In 1993, Philip said: "It wasn't my ambition to 
be President of the Mint Advisory Committee. I 
didn't want to be President of the WWF. I'd much 
rather have stayed in the Navy, frankly." When 
Elizabeth became the Queen, he had to quit his 
job, and became depressed for months. The 
"gaffes" that keep being wheeled out suggest a 
man angry at the position he is trapped in, and 
at all of us for putting him there. In the 
Republic of Britain, he could have achieved his 
real ambition of being an admiral and led a much happier life.

That brings us to the one real reason why Philip 
deserves our respect and gratitude. Before the 
Second World War, his sisters all married 
supporters of the Nazi tyranny, including an SS 
colonel – but there's no doubt which side Philip 
was on. He repeatedly risked his life in the 
Royal Navy fighting for the Allies, and took a 
heroic part in the Allied invasion of Sicily. 
People who glibly insult him today by calling him 
a "Nazi" are ignorant – he came close to dying to 
stop the Nazis. It's much more than they, or I, have ever done.

That should point us, though, to a wider and 
deeper form of gratitude. All across Britain, 
there are 90-year-old men who engaged in that 
incredible act of collective heroism. One was my 
former neighbour, Elbert Hutton, who died last 
month. He fought in France and Italy, then 
returned and worked hard his whole life. But 
nobody ever gave him a palace to live in, and 
nobody ever wrote fawning articles about him in 
the Daily Telegraph. He got a small council house 
and no garlands. Yet Elbert was much more 
deserving than Philip. He never fawned over any 
dictators, or shot any endangered species, or 
complained about his lot, even though he had 
unimaginably less. I'd like to see a Britain 
where we assess Elbert and Philip on their merits 
– and don't expect the better man to bow before the fool.

"The maintenance of secrets acts like a psychic 
poison which alienates the possessor from the community" Carl Jung

Fear not therefore: for there is nothing covered 
that shall not be revealed; and nothing hid that 
shall not be made known. What I tell you in 
darkness, that speak ye in the light and what ye 
hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. Matthew 10:26-27

Die Pride and Envie; Flesh, take the poor's advice.
Covetousnesse be gon: Come, Truth and Love arise.
Patience take the Crown; throw Anger out of dores:
Cast out Hypocrisie and Lust, which follows whores:
Then England sit in rest; Thy sorrows will have end;
Thy Sons will live in peace, and each will be a friend.
