As two think tanks announce that the UK is in recession (and I’m sure they needed to think really hard), Michael Gove, Eduction Secretary, has made a proposal to Culture Secretary Jeremy (K)Hunt, suggesting that in order to mark her diamond jubilee, the Queen should be given a new royal yacht. Yes a yatch, not a card, or an engraved pen but a fucking boat. He stated that due to the Queen’s “highly significant contribution” to Britain and the Commonwealth, she should be recognised with a “lasting legacy” – what a fucking cheek.
The rest of us struggle on, trying to make ends meet, whilst the Queen lives off the taxpayer, surrounded by vast wealth and property, and to mark her Jubilee, the tax payer is going to give her a boat. What about the cuts Mr Gove, what about the failing schools that could do with more money – have you and Mr (K)Hunt lost the plot, insisting on wasting money; between the Olympics and the Queens jubilee there will be a need for more cuts, once the final bill has come in.
To mark the Diamond Jubilee what about the biggest cut of all, in the words of the Committee of Public Safety* “Off with their heads.”
* I appreciate Robespierre probably didn’t say those exact words, and they would also be in French, but you get my point.
