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

  • Abolish the foreign monarch! British first!
  • Abolish the monarchy
  • The Royal Family need to show they have awareness about prioritising the country. How dare they spend 369 million pounds at the taxpayers expense when there are major issues like austerity cuts, the NHS and welfare state are a mess and more people relying on the services of foodbanks etc. This is appalling. Its time the priviledged establishment, who squirrel their wealth away, paid their own way. Its time this system was brought up to date.
