Buckingham Palace granted £370 million revamp

BRITISH taxpayers will foot the bill for an enormous £370 million Buckingham Palace refurbishment package. 

The decision amounts to a huge 66 per cent pay rise for the monarch and the work will theoretically be completed over the next ten years.

That’s £37 million a year that could be going to the NHS. £37 million is also the amount raised by Children in Need last year

Instead the money will be used to help the royals with their plumbing and electric, and sprucing up the east wing. 

The financial decision was made by Theresa May, Philip Hammond and Alan Reid, the keeper of the Queen’s purse, without any consultation of parliament. 

Buckingham Palace has released a statement saying that the Queen was “completely supportive” of the cash injection, as is her husband Philip.

      Cliff, they take out far more than than is paid in. We are not provided with the true balance of accounts. I wonder why? This is all when our Local A&E is being closed.
