I'm in full agreement with Jamie ( ER ) it was delightful . Say what you like but nobody does pomp and circumstance like us Brits .. If nothing else the wedding was a real boost for tourism to the UK . The septics couldn't get enough of  it . 

 

There was an interview with a dopey Doris who said she wished the money spent on the wedding should have been spent on the NHS instead . The thick cow didn't have the marbles to realise that the benefit to the economy was far in excess of the cost of hosting the event ..

Wasn't the "money spent on the wedding" from the families anyway?

The wedding no doubt but the outside costs like police I doubt they paid for. Either way the people paid for the wedding because the Royal wealth comes from the people.

 

I had no interest in it but it seems plenty of people did and I hope they enjoyed the day.

Taken off facebook, so not gospel, but:

Volunteered for 2 tours of Afghan 
•Set up Invictus games helping wounded service personal
•Family brings in 400 million a year in private review that under the “ sovereign act 2011” the government keeps £360 million of.
•Family brings in £1.8 billion per year in tourism. 
•Country better off by £2.1 billion a year. 
Remind me how the wedding is waste of tax payers money ?
AND HALF YOU TWATS WHO ARE MOANING DON'T EVEN BLOODY WORK!!!!!!!!!!

"•Family brings in 400 million a year in private review that under the “ sovereign act 2011” the government keeps £360 million of."

As Daz555 said, this is generated by assets from the crown estate, which belong to the country and not the monarchy.

 

•Family brings in £1.8 billion per year in tourism.

Not neccesarily convinced about the tourism argument myself, I still imagine people would be visiting Buckingham Palace with or without a queen, so can anyone really put a price on their value? Yes, events like Harry's Wedding would have brought in people to the country and raised money but how does that weigh up against the cost of the wedding, security etc.

 

•Country better off by £2.1 billion a year.

Maybe but why does everything have to come down to money? Should we let Russian dirty money flood the country because of the economic benefits? Should we let big business make government policy because they create wealth? Should we let facebook play a part in corrupting elections because Mark Zuckerberg has a few quid? How much money do you need to have to be considered better than everyone else?

 

If the royal family cost nothing or generated 10 times that amount then it wouldn't change things. It is a matter of principle. Sometimes we just need to do things because they are right. That means getting rid of all the hereditary power and influence the royals have.

They are a quirky old tradition that causes nobody any harm. Dont get why people get so bent out of shape about them.
