Someone emailed me this Sully quote:
[The Tories] raised the retirement age to 66; they plan to reduce the numbers of criminals in prison; they’ve cut police funding; they’ve cut defense by 8 percent; they’ve slashed subsidies to the regions. And remember the British debt is not that much higher than the US debt: Yes, the welfare cuts will hurt the poor, but the biggest hit will come from middle class entitlements. The wealthy, including the Queen, are reeling…
Included in the email was a link to this story:
The Queen has scrapped a Christmas party for her staff because of the “difficult financial circumstances” facing the nation.
Every two years the Queen pays for a celebration at Buckingham Palace for the 600 members of the Royal Household.
Truly a noble sacrifice.
