PRINCE CHARLES WANTS TO REBUILD EARTHQUAKE CITY
http://www.dailyexpress.co.uk/posts/view/234000/Prince-Charles-wants-to-rebuild-earthquake-city/
Quote
PRINCE Charles has offered to help rebuild New Zealand's earthquake-devasted city of Christchurch.

The heir to the throne wants to save historic buildings and help reconstruction after a 6.3 magnitute earthquake struck the city on New Zealand's South Island on February 22, killing at least 160 people, including up to seven Britons.

Charles's architecture charity, The Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment, is keen to help after designing a masterplan to reconstruct the capital of Haiti, Port Au Prince, following a 7.0 magnitude earthquake there in January last year that killed more than 300,000 people.

Euhm is that master plan actually used in haiti?
Don't get me wrong it's a great idea, but if they aren't gonna use it, or put it in to practice that all it will remain...an idea!
And that's not exactly what these ppl need right now if you ask me.. royalguard

Can you imagine a time when the truth ran free ...

I think it's gallant of Prince Charles to offer assistance in his own way. Sure there are other things that are needed in New Zealand right now, but rebuilding is also needed and they're already arguing whether or not to bulldoze some of the landmarks, rather than painstakingly rebuild. ...

And if I remember correctly, Charles was asked to submit plans for Haiti and become involved. I don't think he solicited, but was approached, just as he was for his future constructions in India. One thing Charles has a discerning eye for is architecture and configuring communities. No matter who wants to criticize Poundbury, it came together as planned and Charles is a recognized visionary. ...

I, myself, think that William still has designs on becoming Governor General of Australia or New Zealand. It would help explain why he's so eager to jet over there once again. ...

That is truly decent, to want to rebuild and donate so much of his time and money. Charles is on quite the roll lately.

Agree this would explain why William has gone hopping off over to Oz and NZ. How do our antipodean friends rate his chances of becoming Governor General along with the lovely Kate?
