Prince Charles was personally consulted by George Osborne about a controversial change to the law which has significantly boosted the Royal Family’s finances.

Beth Russell, the Chancellor’s principal private secretary wrote: ‘I should be grateful if you could lay this letter, with my humble duty, before the Prince of Wales and seek His consent so far as the interests of the Duke of Cornwall are concerned to place those interests at the disposal of Parliament for the purposes of this Bill.’
Miss Russell outlines the Bill’s main proposals and points out that the introduction of a new single grant to the Royal Household would generate more income for the Royal Family and would not have to be continually renewed by Parliament.
She wrote: ‘The new grant is normally to be set equal to 15 per cent of the profit of the Crown Estate two years prior. Linking funding to Crown Estate revenues in this way should provide semi-automatic incremental growth in the grant, reducing the need for regular parliamentary intervention.’

YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST!   After Osborne's first budget, I told you they were slipping this in and now the MSM has caught up.  Maybe I should apply for a job!

"...equal to 15 per cent of the profit of the Crown Estate...

Perhaps you would like to be taxed at 85% on your earnings and income from your property DL?

If Charlie is feeling the pinch I'll happily send him a Postal Order for a fiver provided he pays for the stamp.

Banned, why the fuck should the crown own the foreshore all round the UK? That is where the profit will come from when off-shore renewable energy projects have to pay those bastards to enable them to do business.

I've long advocated a percentage of the Crown Estate revenues as a replacement for the Civil List . That way there's no sour-faced arguments from the likes of Frank Roy .

"the profit will come from ... off-shore renewable energy projects".

You're having a laugh , DL . Fucking windmills !?!

Anyway , as I pointed out before , your Royal-bashing is contrary to Party policy .

Straight to Alec's Gulag for you !

I'm still getting the top bunk , though .

Oli, you should know me by now. I don't follow any policy apart from my own. I do however believe in independence and as the SNP are the only party that advocates that apart from the fucked up Greens and the Scottish Socialists, I have no option to support the SNP. Anyway I'll need to emigrate since those useless Celtic bastards let fucking Kilmarnock win the league cup as I'm an Ayr supporter and I'll never hear the end of it.
