The Royal We

We're all looking forward to it, apparently. We're all celebrating, they say. We all love the pomp and circumstance of a Royal occasion, says the BBC, ITV and every other TV and media outlet as they push out the posh.

Well, no. Not all of us does care about the Royal Wedding.  Or rather, what we do care about is that our taxes are being used to perpetuate class divide and privilege, that our hard earned tax money that we work 9-5 for, 5 days a week, is being used for something we don't approve of, or want. 

I'm going to do my best to ignore the Royal wedding media machine as much as I possibly can. It'll be difficult, but I'll try. A river walk to a brewery is on the cards for Friday. The TV remote control will be much in use for thereafter.

Well said. If they want a big wedding they are welcome to pay for it themselves, like everyone else does.

I was under the impression that they are all paying for it themselves; the tax payer will be paying for security only. Guess that's why they were all in minibuses!
