AS the song writer George Gershwin wrote “Nice work if you can get it”.
I note Prince Harry has made a round trip of six hours duration to Norway to visit our troops in training (The Yorkshire Post, February 15). There are two relevant points to consider:
1: The planet is facing a serious climate change problem and can ill-afford the carbon footprint associated with this private jet flight;
2: The UK defence budget cannot justify the £26,000 cost.
While I appreciate troops may require morale boosting trips from time to time, can an appropriate visit be made after consideration of prevailing environmental/economic circumstances?
The legacy which we are leaving to our children and future generations is a very unpleasant one.
From: Thomas Reed, Harrogate.
IT would be far better if Prince Harry got a proper job rather than spending his time at rugby, or day trips to Norway, at our expense.
Leave official duties to his father and brother.
