Queen tried to use state poverty fund to heat Buckingham Palace

I know this is from 2010 but the temerity of this German parasitic family named Saxe-Coburg Gotha to even think that asking for money to heat their hideous monstrosities they call palaces and which should be used to house the homeless and the poor is OK  just gets so up my nose that while everybody and their dog apart from one brave Irishman, Irish Rugby legend, Ronan O’Gara, celebrates their parasitic rule I thought I’d put it up again.

The Queen asked ministers for a poverty handout to help heat her palaces but was rebuffed because they feared it would be a public relations disaster, documents disclosed under the Freedom of Information Act reveal.

Royal aides were told that the £60m worth of energy-saving grants were aimed at families on low incomes and if the money was given to Buckingham Palace instead of housing associations or hospitals it could lead to “adverse publicity” for the Queen and the Government.

Aides complained to ministers in 2004 that the Queen’s gas and electricity bills, which had increased by 50 per cent that year, stood at more than £1m a year and had become “untenable”.

  1. If you abolish the monarchy and have an elected head of state you do realize someone will still be paying for that person’s heating bill wherever they are residing during their term as head of state, right? And assuming Buckingham Palace was turned into a museum palace the taxpayers would still be contributing for the upkeep (and heating of it) as the revenue genereated by charging admission to it wouldn’t be great enough to do it on its own. So your elected head of state, without their own comparable personal wealth would likely end up costing more. You loonies do realize that don’t you?
