Prince Charles Likens Putin to Adolf Hitler: Nick Clegg to the Rescue
[Private conversations in front of the world's press????? ed.]
Mr Clegg told BBC Radio 5 live: "I certainly
support his right to speak freely, particularly
in conversations that are private."
Ms Ferguson's said: "I was very surprised that he
made the comment as I know they [members of the
Royal Family] aren't meant to say these things.
Labour and Co-operative Party MP Mike Gapes,
criticised Prince Charles alleged remarks on his twitter account.
"It is for Parliament and government to use
appropriate language to condemn illegal
annexation of Crimea. Prince should stop free lance foreign policy"
"If Prince Charles wants to make controversial
statements on national or international issues he
should abdicate and stand for election."

Eviction Britain: More than half a million face having their homes repossessed
OWEN Wednesday 21 May 2014
More than half a million Britons are facing
eviction from the homes they own or rent,
according to a new analysis of possession claims
served on households by the courts during the past year.
The scale of the crisis equates to more than
4,000 households being at risk of losing their
home each week, Shelter warned today, while more
than 215,000 possession claims have been served
on people since April last year.
In some parts of the country the situation is so
bad that one in 34 households is in danger of
being repossessed, according to the charitys
analysis of county court records from England
between April 2013 and March 2014.
Newham in London tops a list of hotspots revealed
by Shelter, with one in 34 households having had
possession claims made against them in the past
year. It is closely followed by Barking and
Dagenham, and Southwark, at one in 35 and one in
38 respectively. While London boroughs where
house prices are highest - dominate the list, it
is a national problem. Nottingham (the number one
hotspot outside of London with one in every 54
homes at risk), Peterborough (one in 60) and
Salford (one in 60) also feature in the top 20 worst hit places.
In terms of regions, London is the worst hit with
one in 56 households affected. In contrast, in
the south west just one in 172 households have
been served the legal notices, which are the
first stage in a process which can result in
someone being evicted from a home they own or rent.
Despite the political rhetoric around economic
recovery, the reality is that growing numbers of
families are still set to struggle financially in
the future, claim campaigners. And with the
majority of families already struggling month to
month with their housing costs and interest rates
set to rise, many could soon hit danger levels, warned the charity last night.
These staggering figures show just how many
families go through the trauma of learning that
their home is at risk, every single week,
commented Campbell Robb, chief executive of
Shelter. Just one thing such as a job loss or
serious illness can tip any of us in to a
downward spiral that puts our home at risk.
He added: Getting advice early is the best way
to halt the spiral of rent or mortgage arrears
and can mean the difference between losing a home and keeping it.
Responding to the news, Housing Minister Kris
Hopkins said: Official Government statistics
show repossession claims are falling and in the
last quarter were at their lowest for a decade.
This has only been achieved because of this
Governments long-term economic plan, which is
fixing the broken housing market and tackling the record deficit we inherited.
He added: We have kept interest rates low, home
ownership is now at its most affordable rate
since 2007 and mortgage approvals are at a
six-year high. However, anyone facing the
prospect of losing their home should seek advice
and speak to their lender early so they have as many options as possible.
The situation is likely to worsen, with more than
two million homeowners set to struggle to make
repayments on their mortgages if interest rates
rise, according to a new report published on
Monday by the Resolution Foundation.
