Yeah.

But if the UK IS BROKE, can they afford the Monarchy?

Or does it "pull its weight" in some mysterious way - as a tourist attraction perhaps?

The monarchy as a tourist attraction almost certainly net profitable, the queen comes cheaper than many presidents

 

The queen, is I think something more interesting than yet another career politician. Think President Brown or Blair the argument is made.

 

On the other hand permanence is power and that power is held by a high born toff who is perhaps unlikely to understand or push in the interest of the common man.

 

She does I have heard care that the nations soldiers and ex soldiers are treated properly. It is probably a good thing they send their family members to our wars even though they are usually well away from the real fight.

Surely, you have to add the cost of Her Madge (& family) to the cost of the PM.

And then calculate on a per capita basis. I don't think it comes cheaper, unless you compare it with Jackie's dresses - which were paid for by JFK anyway.
