The 60year Anniversary Parades and shows around the country and the forth coming Olympic Games, Billions being spent on these and they say this country is in recession, who is kidding who, all that money could have been spent on the needs of this country instead of being wasted on a show for the Royal Family, how much of the taxpayers money was spent on this and how much did the Royals put to it I wonder--this poor old country is about on it knees and money is being frittered on shows such as these,sorry but I for one did`nt do any flag waving and my thumb is sore from switching †the remote off for the TV, I am sure that there was more than me doing this over the last 3 days, I`m sure we will have a few honours being made in the NewYears Honours List over this especially kissar-e Cameron,bound to be at least a "Sir"in it for him.
Awaiting for the incoming broadsides and flak
How sad are you? It has cost absolutely nothing to the tax payers. All funding came from private means not public. The royal family actually bring into this country over £1.8 billion that is quantifiable and probably more than twice that figure if it could be quantified. I would also like to point out that the Queen is a tax payer just like you and me. The royal family are the cohesion between all the countries that our fore bearers conquered and took over as the commonwealth which today contributes to the wealth of the world and in the main are not seen as third world countries any more. You should feel yourself lucky that you are British and be proud of it just as those that lined the streets to greet our queen this weekend.
