April 29th is the day when Kate Middleton marries Prince William, millions will watch the ceremony on TV and the country will grind to a halt. This day has been declared a bank holiday which means very few people will be at work.
In a recent report the CBI advised that the cost in lost earnings could be as much as £5 billion pounds, not to mention the actual costs of the marriage itself, with all its pomp and pagentry is this something we the British tax payers should be footing the bill for?
Yes retailers will make about one million from commemorative gifts and other memorabilia, but is this a fair trade off to British business in a time of economic downturn?
Sadly we think not, The Royals are a burden on the country and as far as we can see are no real advantage to Britain, now we are been asked to stump up for a Royal wedding!
How much longer are the British people going to allow the Royals to reign?
Do you think it is right that we pay for this spectacle?
