TIME WE HAD SOMEONE IN CHARGE OF ROYAL EXPENSES!


In these austere times when hard-pressed families are having to cut back on the basics of life, it is obscene that we are paying for improvements like the above for the world's richest woman.  These items are for the Queen's private apartments and as such, she should be paying for them.  Full stop.

She's got a fire station in her private apartments ?

I think you must be getting a bit mixed up , DL .

Or is it that your longing to see Fat Eck installed in a newly-refurbished presidential palace at Holyrood leads you to moan about every penny spent by HM ?

Don't see El Grando Presidente costing any less , do you ?

Having looked at the list several of the items seem to be for improving the staff areas rather than HMs.

Note "some in private areas".

And unless she is obsessed with meetings and functions then most of the rest seem to be for "official" purposes also.

Also presumably the bills were paid to the building firms who did the work therefore spreading the wealth around.

I know she is a one for "flipping residences" and I wouldn't like to see Phils DVD collection but which are the facetious/fraudulent ones?

Oli. As you know I do extensive reasearch to make sure my tales of shite are correct. This particular shite was taken from the Mail, a very right wing pro-Monarchy rag, therefore if they're complaining can you imagine what the left wing is saying. I'm sure fat boy wouldn't need 7 palaces and 345 residences to house him and the missus. It's an abberation in this day and age. Leave her with Buck house and either Balmoral or Sandringham and turn the rest into flats.

Anonymous the simple answer is 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9 and 10. What the fuck does she need with this huge staff, footmen and the like. If she has to go to a Fete in a carriage, dress up some soldiers, who are doing fuck all when they're over here and stick them on the back. Why the fuck does she need her own fire brigade? A lot of fucking use they were when Windsor Castle nearly burnt down! Why does she need to pay that to clean chandeliers. Give one of the footmen a ladder and some soapy water. A metal curtain for £7000 for a wine cellar? What's that all about. No, No they have to be cut back. This is only a miniscule part of their expenses. There are far too many Royal sycophants in this country, mostly people who have been in the forces who aren't able to think for themselves critically at anything to do with the Royal Family, because it's been drummed into them for so long.

"cleaning the chandeliers £96k", fucking bargain!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Banned, Give a footman some soapy water and a ladder and you could get him to clean them like the Forth Rail Bridge, for 7 years for that! Or even a duster would have done and then he could attend to his other duty of polishing something, probably Charles's knob.

Rab and the Virgin Mary ?

So that's what he's up to now he can't be arsed blogging ?

Or have you taken it too far , DL ?

(Again ?)

Oli, Who moi take it too far? Surely not. Rab, I think has taken a rest from blogging for possibly family reasons, although I don't really know.
