Don’t get me wrong I like the Queen, Phillip, Charles, Camilla, William, Catherine, Anne, Edward and Sophie….the rest of them I would not give them the time of day…..and I do believe especially in the light of the last parliament that the Queen and Co really are the best to show off when our political elite play at being morons, but seriously a tax bail out??
The Royal Family will be hoping to get a tax rebate because their finances have taken a hit in this Covid 19 pandemic, but then so has everybody else and they do have billions in a property empire and jewels that we can only dream about….so why not flog a couple of things.
Their travel bill cost us over £5million last year, and that does not include the cost of Buckingham Palace some £368 million and Her Majesty is not planning to return there, and Prince Charles says he will not live there when King…..so what a waste of money. Like the majority of you I had to pay for the improvements on my home and I live in mine so will the Government now pick up that bill?
We read extensively how they have taken private jets here, there and everywhere and wear clothes worth millions over the years and surely it has to stop.
I agree we pay for the Queen as Head of State but come on….really the rest of them? Charles has been bailing out his stroppy son the other side of the pond and has put up the cost of rates, rents etc at his Duchy of Cornwall to pay for the extravagant lifestyle his sons live. That cannot be right? People have to find that extra money to pay for luxury for a few.
The Royals get richer by ducking death bed duties, some of which have crippled other aristocrats and they just put everything as belonging to the Monarch, but if you are lucky enough to own a house that has tripled in value then I owe, I owe its off to the taxman you will go.
We have come a long way from the doffing of the cap to our supposed betters and when we are told to tighten our belts, then maybe so should the Monarchy and show that they understand what the country is going through……but they won’t and that is a PR disaster waiting to happen.
