The Queen stands to gain millions of pounds a year in extra funding, even as the rest of the country suffers from swingeing Government cuts, it emerged yesterday.
The Royal Household’s budget is set to rocket under an overhaul that will see the sovereign share in the profits from the immensely lucrative Crown Estate for the first time in 250 years.
The royals are expected to benefit annually from a 15 per cent slice of the £6.6billion property portfolio’s profits when the new ‘sovereign support grant’ is introduced, Treasury sources revealed last night.

The revelations contrast with the 14 per cent cut in the Queen’s budget announced by Chancellor George Osborne during Wednesday’s spending review. 
Courtiers spoke of how the Royal Family would be tightening its belt in line with the rest of the country, as it was revealed the £30million annual Government grant is to be frozen at that level until 2012 with only a £1million one-off supplementary payment to cover the extra costs of the Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
But in fact the change is thought likely to give a significant boost to the royal coffers once it comes into effect in 2013. 
Even during the economic downturn 15 per cent of profits from the portfolio would have yielded more money than the Queen’s current Government funding, and once the economy recovers the revenues should far outstrip it.

Why the fuck are we going to give the Queen around a BILLION POUNDS?
Can anyone tell me, when are we going to get off our fucking big, fat arses, stop watching shite like the X factor and do something about the devious, lying, political class in this country.  We are constantly lied to about, 'how we are all in it together', while it is fucking painfully obvious that we're not.  Now don't get me wrong.  I have nothing against having a Prime Minister who is a millionaire.  I certainly would rather have someone 'ruling' the country who had been to private school and University than a fucking postman, even if he's never had a proper job.  A millionaire doesn't have to thieve and lie like Blair has, because he already has a few bob and in theory he can get on with running the country, at least to the extent his banking masters let him.
Yes it's time we were out on the streets, like the French.  Not to protest about pensions, but to change this so called 'democracy' to one that is designed to serve us, not their masters in some dark room somewhere.  Hanging every third MP would be a good start and might concentrate the minds of the rest!

The Queen (Gawd bless 'er) should tell Osborne to "Fack Orff, oik". It's called the Crown Estate because it is the estate belonging to the Crown in their capacity as private individuals (or perhaps DL you would have the communist Conlibs confiscate their property as the Italians and Greeks did with that of their own X-Royals) thus paving the way for parvenue posties to rule the roost?

Dave & Nick should be grateful that Her Majesty is satisfied to recieve just 15% of HER OWN MONEY to pander to the nations tourism industry and cheap gongs for what is left of the Armed Services and in any cse she has already done her bit by abandoning the annual Staff Xmas Party (though, to be fair, she has often told me that it is a bit of a bloody bore really).

Banned, I feel a disagreement coming here! I think, it's time we got up off our arses and took our noses out of the Queen's arse and told her and her crew, to fuck off. Take away 5 of her palaces and make them into flats. Steal back the Crown Estate, which includes places like Regent Street, which her ancestors stole in the first place. Put her on a sustainable footing for her two palaces, obviously Buckingham and one other of her choice. Then sort out the cunts that run the country. The first thing they can do is to tell the Rothschilds and their crew to fuck off and tell them that we are defaulting on any monies owed to them. I could go on, but I must attend to my bed as I'm up reasonably sharpish and it's nearly 3. To be continued.....

Well we can get the last bit sorted straight away " The first thing they can do is to tell the Rothschilds and their crew to fuck off and tell them that we are defaulting on any monies owed to them."

What about Charlie and his Cornish Dukedom which makes a handy profit from his Duchy fucking Originals?

Oui M. Lochnagar,

Une révolution glorieuse comme le nôtre est que vous avez besoin, alors vous pouvez élire le président comme notre chef glorieux Sarkozy,

Vive la révolution

They will never scrap the royal gravy train DL because it underpins the whole honours system. Without Royalty there will be no more comfy seats in the warmth of 'that other place' for demented ex MP troughers.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Banned, it has to be a concerted effort to tell the Rothschilds to fuck off and unfortunately they own the 'American Fed', it's just that most Americans don't know that. Of course they also own the Bank of England, but that's another story.

I have no problem with Charles making money from talking to plants or making fancy biscuits, but I wonder how much the profits are underpinned by us. After all it wouldn't do for us the people, to know that Charles is a prick.

Hugh Janus said...

Oh did you see this dhimmitude DL ?

"I have a lot of Muslim friends. They refuse to visit me anymore because they can't stand the smell of bacon."

Snr Hamish, La idea que yo tengo es que tenemos una Reina pero no tenemos todo la muerda que hay ahora. Ne se totalamente, pero creo que M. Sarkozy no es el jefe ceremonial, es verdad or no? Por Favor habla la ultima tiempo en ingles, el gente aqui no pueden hablar ingles ni espanol.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Bigerse, That is the whole thing that we have to revolt against. I don't have a problem for anyone making it on their own and I admire the likes of Duncan Bannatyne, no matter how much he is derided on Twatter, but the ruling classes in this country have to be cut down to size!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Big erse, thanks for that. I've pinched it as you can see.
