The jubilee is pretty hard to get away from.
We pay about £35 mil each year, with the running of her household costing about £8m – the queen makes a profit from this figure quite a lot of the time – in the decade 2001-11 she made £35.3m off of us.
The queen is a tax dodger. She pays voluntary tax.. and after her mum died, dodged £20m worth of inheritance tax.
Including the Greater London Authority (~£2m), MoD, Met Police (both undisclosed, though the MoD are bringing a fucking gunship), Dept for Media, Culture and Sport (£100k) and Royal contributions (£1m – pretty minimal, considering it’s HER jubilee), the cost of the jubilee will be well into the millions.
So. Here’s to 60 golden years of state funded benefits, Liz.
