  1. Why should he do that when the Queen herself cannot handle her own finances......

    I guess that you aren't aware that the Royal Family is 'Royally Phucked' when it comes to managing their finances. It was reported that her household (which she MANAGES), over-spent some £2.3M on their allotted sum and having to dip into their reserves which was reported to be at a 'record low' (£1.6M from £58M in 2001). *wink wink*

    So before you start with that.....DO YOUR DAMN HOMEWORK!!

  2. You should go ask the Queen for advice on how to run the island, she is the She sure will tell you how a poor job you've been doing.
