The Royal Family costs the equivalent of 66p per person in the UK. - - - BBC Today

So they took 66p out of everyone's pocket last year. Are they worth it? The queen is the richest woman in the world, isn't it about time she starting picking up the tab?

I used to think they were just leeches but then I actually stopped to think about it.

The money they bring in to the country through tourism and foreign investment outweighs their cost to the taxpayer. Overall they actually make us a profit.

That said, they are all a bunch of toff cunts and I hate the lot of them.

tourism? you mean like the average tourist might get to see them? I doubt that. I'd be more interested in seeing your dead monarchs than your live ones. They were much more interesting.

I'd like to see their castles though, but all that gilt and red velvet would make me run for the nearest IKEA.
