  1. But as (according to you) “they usually tend to grab any arts funding offered.”
    So no troubling principles, then.

  2. Out of curiosity a little while ago I Googled “Where does all the wealth the Royal family have come from?” It came as some surprise to learn it was from slavery! It seems the monarchy received a cut from the slaves taken from slave ships, for giving them permission to transport slaves to the West Indies etc! They weren’t the only ones though, the Church of England did much the same apparently! Both institutions are incredibly wealthy today because the income from slaves was invested so that succeeding royals are still receiving income from the slave trade! Just saying!

      • Thats because you are easily connned Peter. The royal family are there to distract people from the undemocratic way this country is run! More people vote against any sitting government, than for it, and do you remember voting for the over 800 Lords! Time this country joined the grown up world, got rid of the monarchy, and the Lords, and installed a properly representative government.
