MPs take 13 minutes to double Royal family income and approve £360m Buckingham Palace refurbishment | The Independent
A tiny, temporary committee of MPs set up explicitly to consider doubling the publicly funded income of the Royal Family took thirteen minutes to decide that, yes, the Royal Family should indeed have its income doubled.
The “Seventh Dedicated Legislation Committee” was only established to consider raising the so-called ‘Sovereign Grant’ from 15 per cent to 25 per cent of the Crown Estates income, in order to fund the estimated £360m upgrade to Buckingham Palace, and now it has done so, it will be disbanded
AGR – The 1 percent control the government, which then ‘decides’ to give taxpayer welfare and entitlements to the 1 percent, rather than housing the homeless, providing healthcare for the 99 percent, etc. Same as it ever was.
