Make Royals Pay for Palace Renovation

Campaign created by
Mark Johnson

Buckingham Palace is about to be given a £369m refurbishment. Tax payers are paying for it. The Crown and its estates should be made to fund its own renovations.

Why is this important?

There is a national housing crisis, the NHS is in crisis, austerity is forcing cuts in many front line services. Now the Royals expect us to dig deeper to refurbish Buckingham Palace. The Crown's wealth is inestimable. This is, in a word, outrageous.


Reasons for signing

  • The Royal family (bless'em!) are millionaires. It does not seem appropriate at at time when ordinary families, and important institutions (like the NHS) are struggling for the public to be expected to dig deeper for this.
  • There is a national housing crisis, the NHS is in crisis, austerity is forcing cuts in many front line services.
  • The royal family want for nothing and have not suffered austerity like many others in this country. They have millions of pounds and can afford to pay for the renovations. It's their house
