image for Charles tells UK to "learn to live like they do it in Mumbai slums". Brit taxpayers give him one-way ticket so he can "personally experience the joys of slum-living".'
His Royal Sausage-ness

Charles - Britain's Royal Sausage, fresh from talking to plants and now in India for the Commonwealth Games is peddling his new book "Harmony".

With nothing better to do for a living than mooch off taxpayers while waiting for his turn to don the Crown, Charles is known to mouth ridiculous platitudes about conserving energy as he flies from one corner of the globe to another. For a man whose carbon footprint is bigger than that of a thousand Tibetan yetis put together one would think he would put his brain in gear before popping his foot into his mouth.

Nope, the Man who will never be King is now pontificating that Mumbai's Dharavi - one of the world's largest slums -- is, get this: a model of sustainable living that British towns could follow. Britain, he writes, could learn lessons from the way people live their lives in Dharavi. Gosh, we thought Britain was already slummy enough.

In response, the Anti-Monarchist League has provided the Royal Jughead a one-way ticket to Dharavi so he can personally experience the sights, sounds and smells of a Mumbai slum.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
