Petition To demand that the cost of the Royal Wedding is not met from public funds.
It is reported that the cost of the forthcoming Royal Wedding is to cost the UK taxpayer in excess of £30 million. Last month, it was revealed that the Royal family has used extensive offshore vehicles to minimise their contribution to the public purse. UK debt is at the highest recorded level.
The austerity measures imposed by Government has led to drastic cuts in public services and local authority spending. In June, fire ravaged through a West London tower block when it’s reported that just £5K would have been needed for fireproof cladding. The crisis in public finances are endangering those most vulnerable in society, but we are being asked to fund a lavish society wedding, whilst the aristocracy don't pay their fair share.
