Today an audit commision tells us that the Queen is down to her last million and needs a bailout. The Royal Family have not been served as they should by Treasury (have any of us ever?) meaning the Queen has over spent.
The report comments that cuts to the Royal estate have floated around 5%, much less than the rest of the cuts being experienced by the public sector and the report claimed they could afford to trim some fat there. The report also highlighted the opportunity that could be afforded to the Royals by opening up Buckingham palace on more than the 70 odd days a year it is currently open to the public (when she is out getting the groceries I presume) to increase revenue. At present they get 500,000 visitors a year compared to the Tower of London’s 2million. In addition they stated that they dare not consider closing a palace and that it might be a consideration for another year. You cannot make it up.
In the meantime the rest of us have to sit and watch as A&E dies on its knees, hospitals and fire stations close or are being privatised and our firefighters and police are forced to work on until they are grandparents in what are physically and emotionally demanding jobs. What about teachers you say? Well they work on until even longer whilst the essence of what their profession is gets torn up by Michael Gove and his18th Century views of education and children’s needs.
Put into some context the Queen has;
*A billion pound hat made from blood diamonds (everyone tells a story of death and destruction of a nation because they were considered to be less than human based on the colour of their skin)
*12 white stallion horses pulling a golden carriage,
*A golden throne,
*Recently awarded a pay rise worth £5m to the taxpayer (2013)
*Buckingham Palace has 58 bedrooms, 72 bathrooms (she recently advertised for someone to run baths and get paid £6 something an hour)
*And last year they referred to her as ‘frugal’.
The list could go on but it raises the question why we continue to allow these parasites, that are no better than the so called ‘scum’ everyone has been slating on Channel 4’s Benefits Street, continue to bleed our ficticious economy dry?
The Queen gets bailed out, the bankers who created the economic downturn get bailed out, MPs who were complicit in the recession continue to use taxpayer money to heat horses stables and pay for second homes and all the while continue to piss on us and tell us its raining. If you over spend the bailiffs come and evict you, they over spend and they get a bailout paid for by you.
It’s high time people stopped pledging allegiance to people that loathe and hate us, that do not care about us and we start pledging allegiance to each other as WE are the only ones that have anything in common with each other, far more so than the soul sucking vampires that are preying on our debt and misery.
