Cus yeh it totally works like they say it does !

just like parliament works the way they say it does !

I dont believe anything royalty or our government tell us , do you honestly believe someone who's family owned most of the world , would just let a government take "all" of their money from them
you dont think they have anything going on , on the side , do you really think the royals are that honest they hand over all their money to government ?

we got magna carta signed by death threat to get our rights , you think the royals , any royals yield their power so easily

maybe im just skeptical about the royals, ive never liked them even as a child learning about medieval times , Ive always disliked kings and queens as they are nasty people .

Well, its not her land, is it? It's the Crown Estate's. And the income from it goes to the Treasury which is a good thing, no?

What if it actually does work like "they" say it does?

I read that she owns a HELL of a lot of land, in terms of acres, and nice building thereon, which I can only imagine racks up in the trillions when you crunch the numbers.

Apparently she is not allowed to sell it, and it is inherited. But hey.

Aye maybe does , in any case I still think the royals serve no purpose in a modern society
they should have nothing to do with our political system whether symbolic or not , get them tae #!

they are basically an artifact from an older generation an older control system and dont want to release their control

so why should they be allowed to carry on , people just dont want to bin them because the royals represent history and tradition and Britishness!

I have no idea what that even is , another load of rubbish made up to stir up patriotism for an old empire and way of life

"remember the good old days"

how can we make any kind of progress if we dont learn from our past and let go of it

I love the claim that the Queen is 'one of the richest people on Earth'. She's not even the richest person in Britain!

Anyway, oldcarpy and others have it right, here - the Queen gets a bit of the profits from the Crown estate, which (contrary to what many people believe) is not her private property.

But does the queen not own a private portfolio of real estate called ' Duchy of Lancaster', that alone according to the source is 467 Million.

Well read some more and you will learn that we know exactly how much the Crown Estate is worth and no, your guess is way wrong and it's not trillions.


Nothing like an informed debate, eh? Quite.

Regardless, the jist of my post was stop giving her more money!

And here I am getting myself informed. But I did link above that she has private land, which counts as her holdings, of which she does use to fund her activities.

My best argument is that we can do away with the royals and use the crown estates to grow marijuana and the money made from the commercial sale of the ganja grown would net more money than the queen and the royals ever did!

all that fabulous fields of green sticky mary jane !

# it we can even brand it royal weed that way we can still pay homage to the royals and make # loads of cash!

Queen Mary Kush, get a dab session with Lizzie

and you can actually chalice the chalice in Buckingham palace ! for a small fee

Well, sort of. It's held in trust for whoever the Duke of Lancaster happens to be (i.e., the reigning monarch), and they get the net profits from the Duchy, which from memory is around £20m p/a. The Queen can't suddenly decide to sell off any of the Duchy and 'liquidise' those assets (houses, farms, whatever) because she doesn't actually own it in the first place.

I actually think that instead of giving the money to the queen we pay freeze her and her family's ass for a while
see how they like that say 8 years ! see how they live in the mean time, if they continue their life of luxury then we know they are holding out on us !

there is no way they need that money , its straight up materialism and decadence

and the money we use to upgrade buckingham palace and all the other expenses gets spent on resolving some of the most pressing problems, like the poor and hungry , you know those families living off food banks etc
homeless people , elderly and infirm , the disabled .

just because the queen is head of state , why the # should we upgrade her and give her a pay rise , when the rest of the UK are struggling.


and I will say again I still dont believe the crown estate works as advertised , there is no way anyone on earth would let that money slip through their fingers without taking measures to protect some of it !

Every human on earth accept jesus or buddha wouldnt allow it to happen why do you think the queen is any different.

You think she doesnt run guns and drugs on the side ? # even human trafficking

I am a gaian , earthling whatever you wanna call it

right now my consciousness is baseline

Absolute power corrupts absolutely , the queen is a very powerful person and used to all the trimmings
you think she would sit idly by and watch her wealth vanish to scum like the people of the UK

there is no way she is squeaky clean !

I bet she has her finger in all the pies and is far worse than the CIA and ISIS combined

I bet she has overthrown a few democratically elected governments in her time

they are all the same no exceptions , money and power = evil
