    You couldn't make it up...
    But I guess Downing Street told the BBC to get the Queen out of the lime light pronto!
    Too bad that JC's irreverent request for an apology has pushed her back into the glare....

    "I'm shocked. Shocked! To find that rich people are bent as hairpins" to misquote Claude Rains.

    I have no reason to believe that the Queen has any idea where the Duchy of Lancaster invests her assets.

    After what happened with Barings Bank, I suspect she probably takes a closer interest in such things these days. ;)

    I suspect she doesn't mind as long as Charles can't get his hands on them in the immediate short term:eek:

    I'm shocked to discover that anyone is shocked that the wealthy are wealthy by design and not virtue.

    Is it me or is it all part of a large conspiracy tied in with all the revelations regarding sex, money and so on, to try and bring the establishment down?
    Just saying

    Pointing out all the dodgy stuff they get up to isn't a conspiracy. Keeping us unaware of it is.

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    Wealthier.

    Dodging tax does not make you wealthy. Being talented and successful does that.

    But I would hang them all in a public place myself. Naming and shaming is water off a duck's back.

    If you mean being talented at greed and successful at stealing from everyone else - I agree with you.

    how true, but I wondered at the coincidence of all the revelations being done at this particular time
