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

  • We live in 21st century. The so-called royals dont deserve my 1 pence even. Worse than beggars.
  • with all the issues we face in the UK that require funds that are are apparently unavailable, take the meningitis vaccine for one, we learn of more abhorrent desires of this hideously over privalaged family that requires the tax payer to provide what could resolve so much first.
  • The Royal Family are billionaires. Public money is not required.
