Britain's Prince Andrew to give up trade envoy role

Prince Andrew has said he will stand down from his role as Britain's "special representative" for trade and investment.

"As the evolution of my role continues apace and in order to reflect the changes I have outlined, I have decided that the label I gave myself when I began this role of Special Representative has served its purpose and is no longer necessary to the work that I do today and, more importantly, in the future," he said in his annual review.

    @ CSnSC:
    Teddibly good question!
    I submit that one goal would be to elect people with complete disregard for race.
