Prince Charles voices distaste for McDonald's food

Well, when you have someone who cooks every meal for you every day, it's all fast food.

It is unlikely that the Prince of Wales has ever sat at a plastic table in his local McDonald's and tucked into a Big Mac and fries.

You think?

But yesterday the country's most famous organic farmer did not let his lack of firsthand experience deter him, suggesting that a global ban on the fast food giant was the key to improving children's health.

How about we start by making the healthy food as inexpensive as the shit that will kill you.

During a tour of a diabetes centre in the United Arab Emirates the prince asked a nutritionist: "Have you got anywhere with McDonald's, have you tried getting it banned? That's the key."

"Blame Ronald McDonald for your sickness kids."

But McDonald's said the comment, made as Prince Charles toured the Imperial College London diabetes centre in Abu Dhabi, was "disappointing" and showed he was out of touch.

Oh, did McDonalds cheeseburders suddenly get healthier?
