Apache helicopters better at killing people than landmines, says Harry

PRINCE Harry has called for a global landmine ban insisting they are a waste of time compared to his multi-million pound helicopter of death.

Echoing his mother’s campaign from the mid-1990s, the Prince said it was ‘shocking’ that governments that wanted to kill people were still using such dreary, antiquated technology.

He added: “I’m sure my mother would have agreed that strafing people from half a mile away is much more humane and interesting for everyone involved.

“Plus, land mines are left in the ground for years after a conflict has ended, whereas Apache-based deaths are always highly topical.

“If I am going to kill you with my helicopter it will be during an ongoing war that we are both very much part of.

“I find that comforting.”
