:shock: I almost put this into the Believe It or Not forum! Taking from the poor to enrich the already super-rich seems to have caught on in Merry Olde England...again. Poor pitiful Queen Elizabeth is having trouble heating her palaces, according to one of her royal aides. !
Report: Queen made bid for poverty grant

LONDON — Critics slammed Britain's Queen Elizabeth II after a report revealed that a senior aide asked the government if the monarch would be eligible for an anti-poverty grant to heat her palaces, Sky News reported on Friday.

"It's appalling, it's the most crass thing I have ever heard in my life," Sky quoted Graham Smith, a spokesman for Republic, a campaign group calling for the monarchy to be scrapped, as saying. "The anti-poverty grant is meant to go to needy people — and the idea that the palace can take money from the poor to bankroll the rich is disgusting."

No one has ever accused the Royal family of being overly bright or empathetic.
