More Theft by the Government; UK Debt is Over 900% of GDP But Will Spend a Hal-Trillion Dollars on a Jubilee! Good Idea!

Kneel down before your masters, tax-slave.

The very rich Queen of England is worth $500 million dollars or more. 

I'm often blasting the Japanese government and the US government for screwing the people over and wasting our money on taxation.

Let me make it perfectly clear: All taxation is theft.

But today I just have to blast the British Royal Family and how the government over there is just screwing the people over monstrously. This is short and won't take much explanation:

The Queen of England says that these are tough times and that we all have to pull together and cut spending and support austerity. Then she has a Royal Jubilee that cost at least $1.5 billion dollars!

This on top of the fact that Great Britain has the highest debt to GDP in the entire world - Even higher than Japan! Please refer to: Morgan Stanley Reports: Japan's Total Debt, Public, Private and Household, is More Than 600% of GDP. There you will see a chart that shows the total debt, households, government and financial in the UK is over 900% of GDP.

Yeah, but what's a half-trillion dollars for an anniversary between friends, right?

No big deal. 

The royalty have always been scum with no connection to the regular people. "Let them eat cake" attitude still persists today... The queen should tell these people who plan these things to tone them down and don't spend so lavishly (of other people's money!) We have royalty in Japan too, but they don't do things nearly as gaudy as this. Recently the emperor and empress told the government that, when they die, they are forbidden to hold separate ceremonies fo each of them. The emperor said that it would cost too much money and ordered them to have a singe ceremony for the both of them at the same time in order to save costs.

I don't expect royalty to give up their positions voluntarily, but, especially in the west, they should take a clue from the Japanese. For example, even the marriage of the Crown Prince of Japan (the next emperor) is not even close to being in the Top Ten Lavish Weddings of All Time and Japan is a rich nation.

Half a trillion dollars to celebrate some old woman being on the throne?

Kneel down (or bend over) for your masters tax slave!


Finally, not being a Christian, yet well studied in the religions of the world, I leave you with this:

1 Samuel 8  Warning concerning a King
10 So Samuel spoke all the words of the Lord to the people who had asked of him a king. 11 He said, “ This will be the procedure of the king who will reign over you: he will take your sons and place them for himself in his chariots and among his horsemen and they will run before his chariots. 12  He will appoint for himself commanders of thousands and of fifties, and some to do his plowing and to reap his harvest and to make his weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. 13 He will also take your daughters for perfumers and cooks and bakers. 14  He will take the best of your fields and your vineyards and your olive groves and give them to his servants. 15 He will take a tenth of your seed and of your vineyards and give to his officers and to his servants. 16 He will also take your male servants and your female servants and your best young men and your donkeys and use them for his work. 17 He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his servants. 18 Then you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, but the Lord will not answer you in that day.”
19 Nevertheless, the people refused to listen to the voice of Samuel, and they said, “No, but there shall be a king over us, 20  that we also may be like all the nations, that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.” 21 Now after Samuel had heard all the words of the people,he repeated them in the Lord’s hearing. 22 The Lord said to Samuel, “ Listen to their voice and appoint them a king.” So Samuel said to the men of Israel, “Go every man to his city.”

Brilliant quote! I can just see God sighing and waving his hand at Samuel as he says "Whatever, just give them what they want already, for C......sake!"

I doubt the supporters will ever raise the yacht $95 million for charity events and for 'queen and prince'. I even doubt they even want to tackle the 9x GDP debt. "Amongst the attendees were the rulers of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, fresh from their bloody repression of opposition protests in Bahrain."The Financial Times was forced to note in a comment that since the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977, “society has become far more unequal. "After tax, the richest 1 per cent now have 9 per cent of all income, compared with 3 per cent in 1977.”

In regards to the queen, she is with minor exceptions is only a figurehead.

If the majority of people of the UK want to keep the queen around, is that wrong?

Also, her worth from what I have gathered, is mostly in things that she owns in name only, such as the crown jewels, and the palaces. I doubt very much she would ever be allowed to sell them for cash.

The UK has a tremendous number of problems. That being said, it is decidedly more egalitarian than both Japan and the US.

If you think that the UK is decidedly unequal with the richest 1% currently owning 9% of the wealth, in the US, the richest 1% own over 40% of the wealth.
