52p is 52p too much for me. If you want the Monarchy so much then pay them yourself. And take into account the associated expense that comes directly from taxpayer and not indirectly through civil list - such as extra police (even more during state-opening of parliament), Our overstretched military on ceremonial duties outside various royal palaces. The rent free state accommodation in Buck house (owned by the people not the monarch), the billions of pounds worth of land stolen by her ancestors and still retained by them (including the shoreline between high and low water marks). A Sycophantic broadcaster and parliament in their pockets. A taxpayer funded income despite them having billions in cash and assets. Bring back the spirit of Cromwell and off with their heads.
