Subject: RE: BS: Is Monarchy Obsolete in the UK?
I would say that if the agreement made between Parliament and the Monarchy re The Civil List and income from the Crown Estates ever did expire with the abolition of the Monarchy, some sort of deal would have to be made. Irrespective of that the incomes from the Duchy of Cornwall and the Duchy of Lancaster would definitely be split off as they do belong to the Prince of Wales aka Duke of Cornwall and Her Majesty the Queen aks Duke (Yes Duke) of Lancaster.

Unlike the vast majority of "Government" Run enterprises, you know the ones Leveller - those controlled and run by elected, self-seeking, self-agrandising, cheating, lying maggots commonly referred to as politicians, the Duchy of Cornwall is one of the most efficient and profitably run business concerns in the country.

As for security costs, what the current Royal Family costs us is nothing compared to what it would cost to provide security for any elected President. It should be remembered that the coverage detailed by John McKenzie is a constant.

As to being lazy, idle, work-shy - Most here "Levelling" that accustaion would not last one week attempting to fulfil the work load of members of the Royal Family and I would hazard the guess that none would put up with the restrictions and constraints of the job.
