Our fault again!

"From next year the Scottish Government is set to keep its revenue from Crown holdings north of the border

Buckingham Palace triggered a major row over royal funding last night by claiming that Scotland will cut its contribution towards the monarchy under David Cameron's devolution deal with Nicola Sturgeon.

From next year the Scottish Government is set to keep its revenue from Crown holdings north of the border, which the palace said will have an "impact" on royal finances of around 1.5?million.

On the day the Queen's annual accounts were published, a senior courtier said Scotland would not be making up the shortfall from other funds, suggesting that the bill will have to be picked up by taxpayers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The Scottish Government responded by issuing an official denial that its contribution towards the monarchy will end or go down, but the row is likely to worsen relations between the Scottish First Minister, an ardent republican, and the Royal household."

Oh dear, and Madge needs so much money to fix up Buck house as well. Wonder if anybody has thought of imposing a "bedroom tax" on the royal households eyebrow.gif

Ignoring the properties she actually owns, the one which she is 'guardian' for belong to the country, therefore belong to the government, therefore belong to the councils which makes them council properties.
Yes - bedroom tax!

It would be nice if the Scottish Government were to say that any savings made due to funding rule changes will be used to help the homeless in Scotland.

And of course there are no tax payers in Scotland...Jeez do these papers even realise they spout rubbish. At this time there are only UK taxes, we all fund the monarchy so any shortfall from crown estates is topped up from taxes paid across the UK not just England..
