It does not need for a disgusting immoral shower to remain isolated from real life generation after generation while costing the tax payers billions (which they DO) and deliver NOTHING in return.

The tourist attraction argument is pure BS.
Ok, then...letís just hoist up the guillotine. Make it a National holiday. Weíll just make sure we get a ringside seat, start knitting and watch their heads roll into a basket.
Job sorted!

Re: Zaras money for old rope

My point is it seems so wrong for this extremely rich young woman .
(Pleasant as she is and a cracking rider )
To be paid such vast sums -remember she is personally very wealthy ( her own personal fortune is about £20 million) for basically doing very little .
Zara has umpteen very lucrative sponsorships already .
While all around us young people struggle just to get work and canít afford to have a place to live .
Itís morally offensive.

Re: Zaras money for old rope

I don't suppose it's their own fault if they are born into royalty. There is a lot of bad feeling about people born with a silver spoon in their mouth. While I wouldn't mind being a quid or two behind them I would hate to live in the public eye, god no thanks.

No matter if a royal works it will never be enough for some people especially the ones who hate the royals.

Personally I couldn't give a flying buck what she does , I know nothing about her except she's the queen's granddaughter.

Re: Zaras money for old rope

I'm no great fan of our royal family, but I like them and trust them a lot more than I do the DM.

That story is garble, each sentence goes off in a different direction. If they've got something to say why don't they come right out and say it!

I donít hate the royals LQ I am just against privilege and wealth based on a lottery of birth .
I believe in a meritocracy .
This is not work as one would imagine itís merely putting ones face and name to a product .
And yes lots of well known people do this but most have become well known by their own efforts .
Not because they are related to a royal.

I distrust politicians more.

The family are squeaky clean by comparison.

Re: Zaras money for old rope

No they are not squeaky clean .
Just look at Prince Andrew !
Their finances are kept secret we don’t know what they are up too because they are protected .
Of course you distrust politicians who doesn’t but politicians are voted IN and OUT by the people .
They are not awarded their positions along with their birth certificate .

Re: Zaras money for old rope

No one has mentioned that Sarah Ferguson is also on the payroll and she gets £300,000.

What is she being paid for? To advise on the art of toe sucking?

Compared to me and my family they are out & out rogues.

Just trying to put things in perspective.
