    The cost to the taxpayer of the Royal Family fell to 62p per person in the UK last year - a drop of 7p, according to Buckingham Palace accounts.

    The total cost of keeping the monarchy decreased by £3.3m (7.9%) to £38.2m during the 2009-10 financial year.


    Estimated return from an investment of £38.2m was £140.0m

    Not too shabby.

    More like, they don't have to watch the performance of your silly buggers between now and November.

    I other words they like the regal touch.

    Watching the three-ring circus is all that's going on here - has been actually for the past almost 4-years. I think the US wants to see a beheading or someone tossed into the tower.

    The US election local events are even more interesting, with front-al and back-al stabs by opponents on TV and radio. The Federal elections are nasty, but the local elections are blood soaked and downright malevolent.

    Entertainment value is somewhere between ZERO to 100% if you actually watch any of them.



    Funny sidebar: beer sales are at an all-time high. Coincidence? I think not.

    and is there a problem with a bit of pomp and ceremony.
