There is a national housing crisis, the NHS is in ruins and on the precipice of privatisation, austerity is forcing desperate cuts in many front line services, hard working families are forced to use food banks and thousands of homeless people sleep on the streets of our towns and cities. But the Royal Family expect us to dig deep for the refurbishment of Buckingham Palace. The crown's wealth is inestimable, they could finance this upkeep easily by themselves yet it is the public coffers of this Breadline Britain that is expected to foot the bill. There are over 700 bedrooms in Buck House, enough to house many of the homeless and most vulnerable in our society. If the Queen really cares about her 'loyal subjects' shouldn't she realise that this is an utterly outrageous ask and that her government are destroying this country?
If you agree that this is an extremely distasteful, ignorant and dangerous move then please sign this petition I'm not a big royalist - as you can tell - though I've nothing against them individually per se. I just think that they, and the lackeys around them who expect us to pay, need to wake up to what is really happening in this country they rule over. After all, weren't we supposed to be 'in this together'?
