Prince Charles "charitable" But With Our Own Tax Money

Recommended Posts

Prince Charles "charitable" but with our own tax money

Some quotes:

"many of the Prince's charities have become too reliant on grants from quangos that are either facing severe budget cuts or are being abolished."

"The Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment, which advocates the use of traditional building and planning techniques, owns its own headquarters in Charlotte Road, London, valued at £4.3 million."

"Difficulties have arisen as a result of a £20 million loan taken out in 2007 to save 18th century Dumfries House in Ayrshire for the nation."

Best way to do it! :blink:

Yep.

The b@stard.

Actually it is the people's fault for allowing the existence of all these aristocrat parasites. And they hoard land too! And virtually tax-free! BTW, I really doubt we will get land tax in this country any time soon. (Re. that other thread.) it would be "marvellous" though. B)

Real charity is giving away something you would probably miss, to somebody who needs it more than you do! :huh:

This isn't the half of it.

The Dutchy of Cornwall is tax exempt.

If I didn't have to pay VAT, the monopolies and merger commission would be knocking on my door within five years.

So the highest rent paid from all his 'charities' for an office is well over "300,000" p.a.

Paid to the Queen!

Nothing like keeping taxpayer/charitable lolly in ones family!

Saving property for the nation has been a ruse for almost a 100 years now to use tax-payers' money to keep some rich person in his or her home or to keep a nice central London property for some QUANGO HQ IMPO.

Churchill's Chartwell is a good example of this - the boy was bankrupt so his house was bought for the nation allowing him to live in it until his death. He, however, deserved it but most of the titled crowd do not deserve such things IMPO.
