"Are the Royals worth the tax?" poll discussion
Poll started 3rd May 2011, click here to voteAre the Royals worth the tax?
The civil list, which pays for the Royals to do their official work, costs UK taxpayers £38.2 million a year (source: BBC). On the other hand, the Royal family do pay tax on their income, which doesn't just come from the list.
Whatever your view, as taxpayers' money contributes, this is a consumer decision, so your view matters. We’ve run this poll before, and thought it’d be interesting to see if views have changed after the royal wedding.
Which of these is closest to your view of what should happen with the Royal family?
Put the Royals back in charge. Ditch all PMs & let them rule.
No change. It's fine as it is.
Deconstitutionalise them. Just leave a pure figurehead monarchy.
Ditch 'em. End the monarchy forever.
