What was that all about? (and a bit for those poor people forced to work like slaves)...

The obscene amount of money spent on the jubilee is a tough one for many British people to swallow; especially children in poverty going without meals, elderly, sick, disabled and vulnerable people unable to even scrape together a basic standard of living in one of the richest countries of the world. Many of them will have experienced hunger and hardship during the four days of mass hysterical 'sheeply' celebrations of a woman who has, for the past 60 years, along with her family, SCROUNGED off the British taxpayer to the tune of BILLIONS!!!

FFS! She's the richest woman on the planet and she's of German decent not British!

I did try to pay some of it lip-service but quite frankly it left a sour taste in my mouth, even the concert was crap...

One of the worst condemnations of the whole sorry farce was that British young people were forced to work in horrendous conditions, without proper food, sanitation and sleep/rest facilities for free in the hope that they MAY be offered seasonal work in the Olympics...

The coverage by the BBC was nauseous and needs for every licence payer to demand a full refund...

Reuters carried a much better story here: http://uk.reuters.com/article/2012/06/04/uk-britain-queen-realm-idUKBRE8530CM20120604

Monarchy is a romantic ideology and should benefit our society not detract...
