    Queen tried to use state poverty fund to heat Buckingham Palace

    And the goons in charge rejected the notion, Oh, dear Lizzie, how could they!

    This is a mutiny, long live the Queen.

    The Queen asked ministers for a poverty handout to help heat her palaces but was rebuffed because they feared it would be a public relations disaster, documents disclosed under the Freedom of Information Act reveal.

    Royal aides were told that the £60m worth of energy-saving grants were aimed at families on low incomes and if the money was given to Buckingham Palace instead of housing associations or hospitals it could lead to "adverse publicity" for the Queen and the Government.

    I think the OP thinks the queen fills forms out to claim benefits and worried she'll get in first and there won't be enough to go round for his claims.

    The Indepedent has done a couple of articles this week on the Royal household - think they got hold of some information under Freedom of Info and they're milking it for all its worth.

    Hardly frontpage news though.

    Easy answer get one of her minnions to join HDUK, he/she can order the £1 bags of insulation from B&Q etc when the offer gets posted and Admin can stick a "by Royal appointment" crest on the site....

    Maybe the Queen needs to talk to one of those free solar panel firms: isis-solar.com/

    What ?, a leading broadsheet uncovers a story that is of use to the public. Hot'UK'deals - Queen Elizabeth is the monarch of the UK, and most of the Southern Hemisphere.

    She is a treasured asset and she can't be neglected like this. I pay for my parents, but the area needing to be covered is minimal in comparison.

    Should Canada, New Zealand and Australia pay a subsidy for the Queen ?

    should the queen get a proper job?

    You pay what for your parents? Towards their benefits? Please explain what you mean and the relevance to the thread (if there is any.)

    Nice to see you've made a half hearted effort to contribute btw.

    There are only 2 good reasons I can think of that make it worthwhile having a monarchy

    1. They're a good tourist attraction
    2. If we didn't have the Queen would have to elect a head of state, (mind you President Norman Tebbit's state visits to the commenweath countries would probably be a bit more interesting than the Queens)

    What gives you the right to spam this thread like that? And how is it trolling. Read up on the rules, you will find it is your post which is trolling, and that you are completely in the wrong in both spamming the thread and inciting others to do so.

    Grow up. If you don't like the subject matter, ignore it and keep out. If you have anything useful to say, say it. Stop acting like a tool.
