The green hypocrite

Julie Burchill doesn't like the son and heir, calling him the "green hypocrite". She also notes that "Green" is the first socio-political movement in which every single leader and spokesperson is filthy rich.

That is a bit rich coming from The Independent which as a newspaper has espoused the green cause more than most. But there might be some hope here if the left-winging Julie is beginning to realise that "green" is all about very rich people telling those less well off what they should do with their money.
