How’s it going out there? Are your pips hurting yet? You bet your sweet life they are because this whole economic disaster we are living through was designed to bring us to our knees.
So it’s with no surprise that my blood (not blue) is boiling when I read that Elizabeth Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, aka Mrs Philip Battenberg, aka Elizabeth Windsor, aka Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith, is set for a pay rise, up from £31,000,000 to £36,100,000.
Hang on a sec, if I remember how to do this, anyone got a calculator?
So we divide 100 by 31,000,000
Which gives us
Then multiply by 36,100,000
That’s 16.45161290322580645161290322581 %. Let’s not be finicky about it, rounded down it’s 16.45%.
Is it me or is something very wrong here? Decent hard working people are freezing to death in their beds, while the Royals get 16.45%. Look, I’m sorry to break it to you people, but she has a personal wealth far in excess of anything you or I could imagine, and the details of it are kept from us by law.
The whole system stinks, and what do we do, rush out and buy flags to wave whenever she appears within spitting distance.
Wake up to the stupidity of it. This is wrong, wrong, wrong, and it has to change.
