Re: Buck house refurb

Anyone fancy a 57% pay rise + expenses & perks?


The Sovereign Grant is money that comes from the Treasury taxpayers and is given to the Queen for her and her family to carry out official duties. At current rates, it would reach 45.6 million in 2017/18, which would be a 57% increase since 2012.

The Sovereign Grant was introduced in 2012 and replaced the Civil List and three separate grants for royal travel, communications and maintenance of the royal palaces.

Funding for the Sovereign Grant also comes from a percentage of the profits of the Crown Estate revenue (initially set at 15%) and will be reviewed every five years. Last year these profits totalled 304 million.

According to Republic, a group which campaigns for a democratic alternative to the Monarchy, the true cost of the Monarchy to the British taxpayer is actually 334 million a year nearly 10 times more than the figure published by the Royal Family.

It points to the fact that the royal family's security bill, for instance, is picked up by the Metropolitan Police, while the costs of royal visits are borne by local councils.

With all that extra dosh one would have thought, one could pay for ones own effing transport for a jolly to Europe for a few days.......

"The Prime Minister was forced to charter a private jet for her diplomatic visit to the Middle East because Prince Charles and his entourage had booked use of her official RAF plane for an overseas trip of their own, it has emerged.

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall went on a three-country tour of central Europe including to Romania, where Prince Charles has business interests in tourist cottages."
