Prince Charles has launched a new battle against nanotechnology. But should an unelected ruler of the modern world really have the power to direct the attentions of leading scientists at a whim?

I believe Thomas Paine put it best, hereditary rule is “as absurd as an hereditary mathematician, or an hereditary wise man; and as ridiculous as an hereditary poet.”

I feel a bit like Thomas, but at end of the day, I just hope I don't end up, the same way.

Anyway with relatives like Charlie's, you would be ashamed to go out amongst the gentry?

Social Supremacy - I believe we are all equal.

RETURN OF THE KING

WE WANT MIKE.

IT'S FUNNY TO THINK

the average sci-fi fan was more clued up than Charlie.
