    To be honest i was surprised how conservative everything was. Having photographed around 200 weddings I have seen people spending much more than the Royal Family. Other than the big cathedral, the flowers were minimal, the dress was very low key, nothing special really.

    As for people complaining about them spending our tax money.... I'm sure there were so many tourists (who LOVE royal family), spending money on local hotels, tubes, restaurants, pubs etc, it paid off with a profit.

    Yep, take away the Oil, and see what happens.

    Not forgetting also Whiskey exports, which this year was claimed to have defied the global recession by increasing by 10% to 3.5billlion from the previous year, and 60% from 10 years ago adding £109 per second to the UK economy, then there are bottled water exports, which itself is also doing very well, as well as lot of many other smaller, but profitable exports.

    In the future, wind/water power will no doubt be a healthy source of income/energy for the country, we have a small population, and lots of land and resources.
    If the English/Welsh would be better off without Scotland, they would of got rid of us years ago, as tbh we are a pain in the arse, so we must be doing something good.

    Oh nice, an arm chair politician telling us the same old trite comments about the previous government being to blame for the global 'mess' we're suposedly in. Hmm again.

    The next person to go political starts getting infraction points.

    Prince William seems like a nice guy and is a genuinely brave person as well. Nothing but respect for the guy. Kate seems like a lovely woman, and i am delighted they had a wonderful day. The amount of money that must have been generated from this event must be astronomical.

    What are you gibbering on about? So it's the royal families fault that things are tight at the minute? And if we didn't have a royal family we wouldn't have these cuts?

    Seems to me the government both past and present waste millions of pounds on what seems like a daily basis.

    Think about it the royal family, who generate income, attract business, pay taxes, employ lots of staff all over the country etc cost us 62p PER YEAR!
    The government rakes in 80-90p from every single litre of fuel purchased. Jeez how many litres of fuel are purchased daily in the UK? For every packet of fags they get over £5. The list goes on and on besides what we are taxed income wise to begin with and yet we're skint and have to make cuts.

    Dispite this you seem to be defending the government and slagging off the royal family? Either I have read your post wrong, if so my apologies, or basic arithmetic isn't your strong point

    The wealth of so called royalty around the world was build on the backs of the poor and what amounts to plain thievery. These people have no respect for the common people.

    wow :puke2:


    i do feel sorry for all those unfortunate who have suffered in japan and tuscaloosa.
    but basically what you're saying is, STOP EVERYONE STOP and feel bad for us and the world?


    seriously man, if you dont like the fact that two people are getting married while these terrible things have happened, keep them to yourself because it makes
    no sense to say "you shouldn't have a wedding while terrible things are happening in the world".

    Yes the media have been very annoying with their over the top coverage. Probably because they prefer to report good news, it's in most people's nature.

    I'm not going to jump into the debate as I haven't read the extent of it nor am I going to since I've been scanning, most of it I don't care as a Canadian, I don't really care that there is a monarchy.

    All I will say is, congratulations Prince William and Kate Middleton on your wedding and I hope you two will spend the rest of your lives together and have a great one to the end.

    Personally, just like everyone here, they deserve to be united and live their life happily thereafter.

    Take a walk outside and calm off mykledw.

    Yes there's a lot of coverage, do what I do and avoid turning the TV on. I certainly care and I know nearly every country outside of the UK doesn't care. And even half the people who do live there don't care.

    But can't do much about it. All the women love to watch.
