The Royal Family happen to be self financing.

Well not exactly yet, but the benefits of tourism far outweighs the amount funded by the taxpayers.

What doing ? Opening the odd fete & gala or Poundland store ? Never mind the royal brat, think of all the royal hangers on & myriad of staff to keep em in luxury all paid for by Joe & Jane Public of course.

I don’t think the ‘self financing’ bit has actually been proven. Do tourists come here to see the Royals? We do have a lot of pomp and ceremonial that’s associated with them and foreign tourists do seem to like that sort of thing. In our village they’re planning a street party for the Royal Wedding and possibly televising both that and the FA Cup in the church! God help us! I’m all for things that will be a stimulus to the economy though and their antics do help to brighten up my dull life. :biggrin:

Anyone or organisation that has traffic lights in corridors for man servants to halt for oncoming Royals is a nonsense! What money do YOU and I actually get from Tourism..those tatty shops in London are run by Asians..turning out plastic trash..East Midlands Airport does not sell Nottm/ Robin Hood related items...plastic London taxis and Tower Bridge fridge magnets!.Did anyone watch the QMC documentary???? Try explaining Royals to that bloke who had his hip operation cancelled for the 3rd time!

Get Rid.

How can the head of state (the Queen) be married to a Greek clown when he saw a man with a beard recently asked " Is that man with a beard a terrorist ?)

You or I would be done for an alleged hate crime. That bloke is a total embarrassment .

I am inclined to agree with you Ian. I was just trying to put the other side of the argument. I’m totally indifferent regarding the Royals. However one of my former co-director’s cousins married Lady Diana’s cousin so that gives me a remote link to the line of succession. There might be a chance for me! :biggrin:

Let's use the Windsor wealth to ease the financial burden on the National Health Services. I think a  council house semi for each Windsor family could be found somewhere in the north east for as long as they could go out to work and pay the rent. The older ones in retirement would presumably draw a pension commensurate with the arduous toil they have undergone in their working lives.

Sort of what happens to most folk................................

The cost to the taxpayer 2017/18 will be £46.5 million - less than a pound a YEAR for the poor downtrodden serfs. Bargain I say and though we may joke aboutthem  looking round the world at some of the alternatives I say long may they continiue. I'll happily give a nice new shiney one pond to anyone who feels they can't afford their contribution this year.  unionflag

Seems it's not at all clear and the tax they pay muddies the waters somewhat but hey ho whatever.... I'll make it two quid....

Lady Diana I think NOT, total fruit cake, suited Charles down to the ground, both adulterers but at least he didn't go around in just his skimpy's and a fur coat.

 

And any way I just happened to be abed after a heavy night in a hotel next to the cathedral in Oban and bugger me they started ringing the bells at stupid o/clock just because she was getting buried, went to Fort William everywhere closed until it was finished....... that put the kibosh on it for me.

Have to disagree..she showed them up for what they are...and like many...don't like to hear the truth.

Tory rag The Sun embarrarssed the Queen to fly the flag at half mast...and the funeral hearse was a clapped out Daimler..years old! The weight of flowers alone nearly caused it to conk out..the peoples favourite she was  .
