British Royals BOOED in England

The British people showed Dunce Harry and Skank Markle their feelings about the infamous duo.

If you think Johnny Depp experienced #MeToo BS with Amber Heard, then consider what cuckold little Harry endures with Meghan Markle.

The two who abdicated their positions as “royals” find things not quite going the way they’d like. At their recent public appearance with the other members of the “Royal Family”, the crowd greeted the two with boos.

The only thing I like about this royal waste of money at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee involves the reception the crowd gave to Harry and Meghan.

Harry and Meghan are equally despised on two continents….that we know of. And that’s mostly because outside of England and some parts of America, nobody gives a flying flunk about the so-called royals.

I write about them as a cautionary tale. Some people’s fascination with royalty is why the world is so screwed up. I have no idea what this shindig cost, but enough to make a difference in many lives.

Amid the festivities of Queen Elizabeth II’s platinum jubilee in the United Kingdom, misleading social media posts have been circulating concerning the cost of the event.

The UK government has promised to host a “once-in-a-generation show” to celebrate the occasion, but hundreds of social media users have asked the question: How much does the celebration of the Queen’s 70 years on the throne really cost taxpayers?

Some have expressed anger and disdain that taxpayer money is being spent on the celebration, especially after the UK economy has suffered due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Ukraine war.

A number of users on Twitter and Facebook have claimed over the past week that the Jubilee will cost approximately £1 billion in total or around £38,000 per UK household.

But according to Office for National Statistics, there were 27.8 million households in the UK in 2020 and 32 million taxpayers. Dividing £1 billion by that number it comes out to just over £30 each, not £38,000.

Although we don’t yet have reliable figures for the total cost of the event, there is no indication that it will be anything close to £1 billion.

UK government does estimate billions of losses in productivity.

This price tag of £1 billion for the Queen’s Jubilee has already been mentioned but not in that context.

In 2012, the government estimated that the Queen’s diamond jubilee, to celebrate 60 years on the throne, would cost the UK economy approximately £1 billion.

However, this does not simply refer to the celebrations but encompasses the cost of the two extra days of bank holidays when most people will not be working.

For this year’s jubilee in 2022, the UK government estimates a net loss in productivity of £2.3 billion. At the same time, however,the Centre for Retail Research predicts that consumers will spend £408 million over the four-day weekend, potentially balancing some of the economic loss.

Whatever the final cost of the Queen’s Jubilee, I think it’s safe to say we have much bigger fish to fry. Like why Joe Biden is still sitting in the Oval Office. However, it is nice to know that our friends across the pond share our opinion when it come to Markle and the job she’s done on Prince Harry.
