Following the WikiLeaks revelations this week, senior figures from Edinburgh cricket club Carlton are reported to be meeting in emergency session today to review the future of Prince Andrews globetrotting role as the clubs special ambassador. 

Prince Andrew rubbishing Grange's batting
Leaked documents have revealed how the Prince railed against rival Scottish Premier cricket clubs Grange and Greenock during meetings with senior international business figures.  A memo from a top US State Department official reported that a meeting involving the Prince had been astonishingly candid, the discussion at times verged on the rude.  He likened Grange batting to the French and said Greenocks bowling reminded him of the Kyrgyzstanis.  Her report continued, ‘I had no idea what he was talking about but he reacted with almost neuralgic patriotism when any comparison between Carlton and Grange came up.

A spokesperson for the go-ahead Edinburgh club said,While we are fully in favour of free speech, we regret anything which puts our cricketers' wickets at risk.  It is essential that clubs are able to operate on the basis of confidentiality of information. We hold all our rival clubs in the highest regard.
