Chuck prefers an older carcase

Prince Charles has said it is a "tragedy" that mutton had fallen out of favour. The Prince of Wales spoke at the Ritz, London during a dinner to launch the Mutton Renaissance Club.

A revival of mutton could give a boost to under-pressure sheep farmers and help sustain traditional countryside life, Prince Charles has said.

"These are the people who make our countryside utterly unique and these are the people for whom I will do everything in my power to help and that is why we are here tonight."

The Prince is well known for eschewing the easy temptations of a tender young bird, preferring an older piece of meat.

I never new mutton had gone out of favour.

Well, not if you've ever ordered a Mixed Meat Balti in Birmingham.

I'd imagine.

I thought the club was disbanded some years ago after some notorious acts with Amyl Nitrate got out of hand? I hear he's also speaking at the Grand Lodge of Badger Gassers next week espousing a similar view.

Do they actually call it a "Mixed Meat Balti"?

That sounds so inviting.

Will sir have a abbatoir sweepings Jalfrezi? It is a medium spiced dish.
