WHAT a cruel word we live in. What a promise to give to a new grandson!

I read with horror that Prince Charles wants to give shooting lessons to Prince George.

According to a friend of his, he will teach his grandson to ride, shoot and fish and instil in him a love of nature.

It’s a very perverse way to teach a love of nature through causing our fellow creatures suffering.

The killing and destroying life is not an acceptable pastime in a civilised society.

A love of nature comes from respecting and caring for the Earth and all the life that depends on it.

It would be a better world if we all instilled in our grandchildren happiness, humility and kindness.
