Quote:
The cost to the taxpayer of supporting the British monarchy has risen by 200,000 in the last financial year, Buckingham Palace accounts show.

The Queen's official expenditure increased from 32.1m in 2010/11 to 32.3m in 2011/12.

Maybe this has risen because the Queen was involved in events leading upto the Jubilee. I think this is around 52p each year to the tax payer.

52p a week extra? She's obviously back on the gin again.

Even if she is the whole 52 pence will probably go back to George Osbourne in tax anyway Laughing
