Prince Charles' Funding Amount Up, Tax Down


news.sky.com

The amount of money the Prince of Wales receives from the taxpayer jumped by almost a quarter last year.
Figures from Clarence House show money from grants and funding from Government departments jumped 23.5% to more than £3 million.

Prince Charles' official expenditure rose by nearly 20% to more than £12.5m.

His main cost was a 48% rise in official travel by air and rail - up from £1.157m to £1.71m.

The Prince's private income increased by just 1% to £16.4m, but his tax bill for the financial year fell by almost 10%.

The accounts also show the surplus generated by the Duch

Right, I'm no mathematical genius by any stretch of the imagination but to have an increase of private income of 1% and then a tax bill reduction of 10% strikes me as very odd indeed.

Couple this with the current digging into how MP's use their expenses and I think it's fair to say that something very odd indeed appears to be going on here.

The website says more news to follow and I am fully expecting a whole load of spin and half truths to cover up the fact that as the rest of country are struggling to pay their taxes AND make ends meet on a day to basis, the heir to the throne has had his income rise and tax bill fall. How very very odd indeed.

Gonna be watching this one...

Peace,

A smoke and mirrors propaganda exercise to try and tear the public's attention to the fact that the MPs are a bunch of corrupt and lying bastards who actively swindle the public at every turn, and to divert attention from the fact that some corporate Labour shill has been 'elected' Speaker over the people's choice of Anne Widdecomb.

At least Charles does something productive with his freaking money, for crying out loud, and not just spending it on porn, giant TVs and second houses.

I think Prince Charles is a fantastic representative for Great Britain, and he's worth every penny

Why not actually look at some of the good he has done, instead of showing your petty jealousy?

Isn't Charles supposed to be a spokesperson for Global Warming?

Wouldn't this be a big contributor to the travel costs that are 45% of his expenditure?

I can't stand the monarchy,hopefully in my life time we get rid of them.In any case a large chunk of that money doesn't come from tax payers anyhoo.

And the BBC are doing a wonderful job of trying to incite hatred for the monarchy on their HYS forums...

Is Prince Charles worth it?

The overwhelming response appears to be "yes!"...

I'm sorry, but I value the Royal Family much, much more highly than any politician. They do the job from day one to the day they die, and are one of the few remaining icons of the country.

Think for a second what our current 'government' would do with those small millions. Waste it on pointless lefty initiatives such as paying for more 'integration and equality ministers' or whatever title they can come up with just to get someone in government, put it towards new ways of taking our freedoms, pump it into fabricated wars and economic crises.

The fact they are not elected means NOTHING at all. Gordon Brown was not even elected - where is he? Tony Blair was elected, in the latter half everyone wanted him gone, did he not stick around as long as possible, then hand the job over to his pal? Does Gordon Brown continue to resist weeks of pressure to resign and constant demands for a general election, even after two recent astonishingly bad election results for him/his party? Yes he does.

Is he now trying to 'reform' politics so that he can grasp on to power for as long as possible, then come out looking like the good guy for reforming? Yep.

My point is, politics these days is all thuggery and thievery. I would rather put my faith in the ancient institution and pay taxes to them for living in their land, than these modern crooks who really will stop at nothing...
