Queen Elizabeth crowd sources on Indiegogo

Queen down and out

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth has found herself down to her last £million while a palace insider stated she had approached David Icke for advice regarding donation funding. Mr Icke, a world renowned conspiracy  theorist, is reported as having pointed her majesty toward the Indiegogo website.

Next she’ll be down the local pawnbrokers with her diamonds and tiaras and selling her shares which are protected from the population’s general knowledge.

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, long thought to be one of the world’s richest women, is apparently down to her last million in savings, with palaces leaking and falling to pieces as MPs say she has been failed by her advisers and the Treasury.

The Queen’s courtiers have been advised to take money saving tips from the UK treasury, as her finances dip to an historic low with just £1 million left in reserve, the Telegraph reported.

A report by the Commons Public Accounts Committee found that her reserve fund had fallen from £35 million in 2001 to £1 million today. While the Royal household had made efficiency savings of just 5 percent over the past five years, government departments have made savings of up to a third.

MPs on the committee said that the Treasury must help to protect royal palaces from further damage and deterioration.

“We believe that the Treasury has a duty to be actively involved in reviewing the household’s financial planning and management – and it has failed to do so,” said Margaret Hodge, the Labour chairperson of the committee.

Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle are both in a terrible state of repair with staff required to catch rain in buckets to protect art and antiquities.

Meanwhile, in Buckingham Palace the 60-year-old boilers were running up bills of £774,000 a year and the wiring has not been replaced since 1949. More than a third of the royal estate has been found to be below “target condition.”

 

The committee compared Buckingham Palace, which has just 500,000 visitors a year, to the Tower of London, which has more than £2 million.

“If you look at the Tower of London and its visitor numbers it makes you think that there’s potential here. Have they done their darnedest to maximize value for money?” Hodge said.

The report also found that the royal household has not even attempted to cost up its huge backlog of repairs because it believed there was no point in doing so until it has new funding in place.

The Crown Estate gets 15 percent of its income from the Sovereign Grant, which replaced the old way of funding the Royal Family through the civil list in 2012.

While the Royal Household’s net expenditure was £33.3 million last year, £31 million of this came from the Sovereign Grant. To find the difference, it had to dip into its reserve fund.

A spokesman for Buckingham Palace insisted that the Sovereign Grant had made the Queen’s funding “more transparent and scrutinized” and was resulting in a “more efficient use of public funds.”

But the committee found that much more needs to be done if the Crown Estate and the Royal Household are to properly manage the Queen’s finances.

“We got the impression that they just haven’t tried to make greater savings. Here we are, we’re all in it together, but they are failing to eke out better value for the Queen. They are dipping into their reserves in a way that just isn’t sensible,” Hodge said.

The report found that the Treasury was not doing its job properly. It is responsible for overseeing the Royal Household finances but is not doing enough and should draw on its extensive experience and “offer advice on key packages.”

“The Household needs to get better at planning and managing its budgets for the longer term – and the Treasury should be more actively involved in reviewing what the household is doing,” Hodge said.

Number crunching

A closer look at both the report and the figures in it reveals that the Queens finances may be healthier than the Committee found, and in areas where she has lost money it is not the fault of the Treasury but of her managers, the Guardian reports.

The report its self was compiled from a series of questions and answers with just two witness giving the answers, Sir Alan Reid, Keeper of the Privy Purse and Mike Stevens, Deputy Treasurer to the Queen.

When asked why they did not cut back their expenditure, Sir Alan Reid replies: “We really believed that it is not wise to cut back on the level of activity of the monarchy.”

The figure of 1 million pounds does not accurately reflect the value of assets held by the Royal Household, the Guardian says. Their total reserves stand at 14.2 million pounds, 11.8 million pounds of which comes from property, plant and other equipment.The biggest chunk of royal spending goes on payroll, and although staff numbers remained unchanged over the past year cost have risen considerably.

Austin Mitchell, one of the members of the committee, asked: “It looks to me that you managed to survive and manage the finances by letting the buildings deteriorate, by freezing the staff costs and by digging into the reserves. Is that a fair summary of what has happened?”

To which Sir Alan replied, “I think that does summarize, to a degree, what happened last year.”

Indiegogo

However, the last minute intervention of Mr Icke may have just saved the Queen’s bacon. There are rumours within the establishment that, due to Mr Icke’s advice and enlightenment of the Queen on how to make vast sums of money out of people without going to the bank for a loan, the Queen had a quiet word with her cabinet and the secretary of state for media, to give Mr Icke a pass regarding the requirement, by OFCOM, that no politically motivated person can hold a British broadcasting licence. Mr Icke seems to have quietly apologised to the Queen for calling her a reptile all these years and she quietly pronounced him a Knight of St John of Jerusalem even though he has no royal lineage. He did much the same, quietly while telling poll tax protestors he wouldn’t pay his either but then quietly did so. The Queen likes the name David since it originates from King David as she believes she does. She’s very happy with David Cameron and David Dimbleby we hear also. David Beckham also got a kind word from the Queen although she quietly mentioned to him that she thought Posh was a bit of a slag.

Below, you can see the Queen in her Indiegogo campaign requesting donations to upgrade her property’s boilers. Seemingly, her majesty is not aware that the government runs a free boiler programme for the elderly and those on certain benefits. Perhaps if she were to let her £1million run down to less than £6,000 in the bank then she would qualify and wouldn’t have to come scrounging off the subjects she and her family have lived off their entire lives.

    How the mighty fall,at least we have food banks so she should be able to get a bite to eat if things
    really get desperate.Maybe she could apply for Income Support once her savings go below £6000,.
    or the 430 paid State Carers she uses could organize a whip round to help her during these
    difficult times..Sir Davi Dick e

    She could of course take in homeless people as lodgers and provide them with a very nice room for rental income. There must be hundreds of these rooms if not thousands in all these castles and palaces.

    The other royals could do it too and stop taking OUR money to pay for their homes.

    • earthlinggb said, on January 29, 2014 at 1:44 pm

      But she doesn’t have to Babs. None of them have to because, contrary to their talk, they are quite happy for everyone (the majority) to be so disillusioned by politics, find it boring (yet it is life and drives life) and simply dumbed down, that they can say/do whatever the hell they wish and get away with it all time and time and time again. The government have even pushed through that bill banning any form of criticism of it during the year of elections. 99% of people won’t even know that or care or see the sheer scale of that dictatorial step and quashing of any form of free speech. Honestly? It is getting to the point of driving me nuts. You begin to despise people for their lack of… well… anything really.

    Down to her last million £’s ?? That’s rubbish! Tell her to check her bank account in Jersey, she has millions of £’s invested in RTZ (Rio Tinto Zink) as well as Shell petroleum, she owns all the depleted uranium mines in the world, which will be making a tidy profit for her now we are dropping bombs all over the world at the moment + many many more property investments! & good old Big ears pulls nearly £25 million out of Cornwall each year, the Windsors are scrounging parasites, there is no end to their greed.

    • earthlinggb said, on January 29, 2014 at 5:52 pm

      I’m just reporting what’s being reported. Trust me I don’t believe a word of it. Scrounging parasites indeed they are. Big ears is also invested with Jacob Rothschild in Tamar Energy (biomass). They’re all full of crap. The problem is that people read this shit and take it seriously.

      • Crystali said, on January 29, 2014 at 7:59 pm

        Georges tooth ‘n’ Kates knickers (one hopes they’re not full of crap), lol, you can be quite funny.

    Our taxes, all of them are a form of share capital for them, they get funded with the greater share from our work, they don’t want to use money they already have, they don’t actually make any, they live off us.
    Then they despise the benefits system to which many dared to fall into in its net to financial hardship, whom the money for that is the peoples money anyhow. Now people are being told they are not entitled to their money, it’s the states money, the state can do what the hell it likes with the peoples money, but the people can’t have any of it, because that is classed as a privilege, and the state decides who gets the privileges once it has been so called ‘means tested, does the royal family get means tested… …mean, but not tested!
    They don’t want to use that which has already been plundered, they have invented ‘compounded plunder’, more from the serfs they helped inspire into existence, is that not what one does from ones subjects with their backs up against a wall.
    If you mentioned food bank to the royal family, most would probably (yes this is just conjecture) think it means a state dinner at the local bank of England’s head office.
    They want to pick the pockets of the poor, surviving and struggling to demonstrate the worth of status.
    Charlie boy could pay for the refurbishment from his Duchy Originals company profits, and no doubt his Prince if Wales Charitable Foundation and the order of merit! Andrew, well, his connections alone could solve the third world deficit let alone fix a residence or two, maybe they could get advice from Tony Blair, he has spent so much time protecting his public persona while selling ‘state secrets’ to business men on how to use the system to their advantage.
    They just prey on the peoples kindness and ignorance, but thankfully there are less ignorant than as little as a decade ago, Yahoo forum and others show that.
    Sometimes it makes you wonder if it is done just to spite, to mock and tease the populace like their government does, steal, plunder and desolate then cry the coffers are empty just to miraculously find enough to ‘bail’ their banking buddies and hide the embezzlement in the name of foreign aid. But we’re all stupid and can’t see it right.
    So yes, come on people, pay to fix the palace, the poor old cow can’t sleep in her super king size four poster comfortably with peeling paint on the walls, and if you have to sit in the cold because your budget cant stretch to heat, the poor old cow has to pay for enough heat to keep you warm for the rest of your life, no doubt in rooms that are never even occupied because the boilers the most used in Britain.
    Well, that’s what us peasants do huh, we pay to keep the luxury exclusive to thieves in another name while their gloves cost more than your entire wardrobe dare they touch your inconsequential skin while taking from your battered hand… …

    OK, I’m cool 😉

    • earthlinggb said, on January 29, 2014 at 6:59 pm

      lol. Another spot on! I wish this fcuking country would get angry! I’m past looking for that “peaceful solution”. In fact, I think that everyone talks “peaceful solution” to stop there being any uprising. They then have their “peaceful solutionists” all argue with each other what form that solution should take and most talk about meditation and channeling fcuking energies! I’ll channel my energy with a swift kick up your back channel! I’m sick of incompetent, manipulative, two faced bullshit artists!!!

      • Crystali said, on January 29, 2014 at 7:49 pm

        Oh indeed, and yes, talking peaceful solution is no solution unless it gets off the fucking paper.
        That’s why I have no interest in places like TPV, it replaces action with talk and it will be that way unto death, it’s the ouroboros circular road to nowhere. 🙂

      • Crystali said, on January 29, 2014 at 11:53 pm

        My website is about spiritual principles, not ramming it down anyone’s throats, it can be read and it can be left, I don’t care. I never talk about anything spiritual in my life because people are not interested, it stays hidden within. I am not saying what you said was a snide remark toward me (why mention it), but I am not two faced, talking about spiritual principles and conspiracy on the other hand, I just happen to understand both as being truth to me, one gave the wisdom to see and understand the other and it does not detract anything from truth.

        If you believe that gays deserve to have more than equal rights (no, I am not saying you do, it is just an example), and I do not believe that as truth, I am not going to deride and call you names because I believe the opposite, that is what controls minds and steers peoples thinking.

      • Crystali said, on January 30, 2014 at 3:09 pm

        Don’t use that love and light, meditation, energy hate shit with me, look around you, it isn’t exactly ever going to fucking happen is it, not in our lifetime, it is my ideal, but not possible because people are their own worse enemy.
        So is that what you want, is that what you want for your daughters, a violent uprising so you can release your anger in every direction, I thought you were intelligent.
        And peaceful solution, where is a peaceful solution, who has ever put a peaceful solution on the table, where’s your peaceful solution, do you have one, have you attempted to get it out and put it into practice?
        You have riots and protests here and there, but those are aimed at specifics, not a full system solution, and did it get anywhere but people loosing more blood? Has a peaceful solution, true solution ever been effected, no, so you want to skip by all that and go straight into an angry violent uprising.
        Maybe the only reason you have a blog is to get your anger out by arguing it out, even with the people that are on your side, maybe you’re one of them, paid to incite a violent uprising where the people can never win against the fucking goons of this system and you know it, that’s why to date it hasn’t been done because the people know it would only result in their own slaughter until our nation resembles the God forsaken middle east. No I don’t believe you are one of them… …? so once again, don’t bother to get your knickers in a twist… …!

        Put your solution on the table first before whipping up a momentum of violent anger, if it fails then go for it, have your violent uprising, because that’s what they want, its what they have wanted for a long time, it solves their problems by getting us to solve it for them.
        You claim to have a solution, so where is it?
        Go on, put it on the table for consideration. Or is it all hot air?

        Humanity lacks brotherhood/ unity, and you know why shit exists because people will not stick together, everyone has a different perspective and no two seem to match up adequately enough to unify into something workable. Everyone just wants to argue their perspective and bitch at each other over petty differences and argue over who is more knowledgeable than the others, after all it’s what got us all where we are today, controlled fucking slaves pondering over our disgruntled lot in life. Not even people that have eyes wide fucking open can totally agree and utilise their intelligence properly to attempt to get together and overcome the odds, that’s why were where were at.

        Peaceful solution IS the answer, but it will never have an answer until people come together and actually come up with it and do it, if it fails move on and drag the elite out and fucking lynch them, yes I am for love and light and peace, but it won‘t happen and the price for achieving it is too great.
        I have an answer, but it is my answer, not many will agree on it so what’s the point, I will fulfil it alone.

        What stops people getting together and acquiring some land and create a community outside the fucking system, I tell you why, because people if they are honest love their fucking stuff, they love it all and don’t want to let it go. They want a better world but not to let go of the stuff, so you can’t have it both ways, an alternative or the same shit and that’s why were all still in the same shit because too many love it in all honesty in all it‘s hideous fake glory. People haven’t a clue how to change it because really people know they can’t change it, it is beyond change because the beast is too big for them and they know the consequences of fighting it, so accept it and shut up or get out of it.
        Go protest outside all the usual buildings and get your heads bludgeoned, yes, I agree it’s better than sitting on courage and doing nothing at all, but what’s it done to date… … yes, nothing.
        What else is there, civil war, hardly civil is it, and who gets hurt, you and I and our children, that’s who.

        So come on people, where’s your solution? Here’s the table, it’s big enough to compile it, rationalise it and plan it… … … Anyone?

        • earthlinggb said, on January 30, 2014 at 4:55 pm

          I’ll have to read my comment again to see what I actually said that got that response. lol
          What you say here: Peaceful solution IS the answer, but it will never have an answer until people come together and actually come up with it and do it, if it fails move on and drag the elite out and fucking lynch them, yes I am for love and light and peace, but it won‘t happen and the price for achieving it is too great.” I actually agree with entirely. I’ve not re-read my comment yet but my point isn’t so much to have a violent uprising (even tho that’s perhaps how it came across) but it’s sheer frustration at this concept being promoted of “love and light” which is going to kill the beast. It isn’t because of the reasons you quite rightly mention. For that to kill it, the whole world has to find love and light within a present system which does not allow such. Most people on this planet, remember, don’t have a damned clue what we’re talking about. They can’t process it in their heads. This is just a sad fact. Therefore, the “love and light” brigade are on a loser. “Peaceful” revolution then requires, itself, a large mass of people to understand the basics of the issue. The solution comes from that understanding just like a plumber doesn’t know how to fix your problem until he locates what is causing it. Simply by locating and understanding the problem, you arrive at the solution. The problem lies, at its core, in the legal fiction called the “person” and the monetary system. The monetary system is fixed by introducing a new one with no interest on money and recognising that we are the creators of that money in that it is us who literally create all value which backs it and that money is ONLY a means of exchange. The legal fiction “person” issue is then tackled by simply recognising how it is used in all it’s different aspects from statutory rules giving more rights to some “persons” than others in various circumstances while also giving legal person rights to dead corporations. Attack and resolve those two fundamentals and you have a change in human nature you would hardly believe.

          • Crystali said, on January 30, 2014 at 6:00 pm

            I cannot refute any of that, and it is what gets us stuck in a situation of stalemate. Us few here can see the solution if the solution lies in the economy alone, but corruption is not limited to the economy or it’s handlers and protectors. The trouble is the people that uphold it all, the people that protect it, they will never allow a solution to distil the racket, they themselves are the great big ponzi scheme, so therefore another solution has to be thought out.

            The only change people have the freedom to make is of themselves, it is to change themselves, it may not change the system economy, but it lightens the load we have to live in if we all had better due consideration for each other, and no, that is not telling anyone how to be, it is common sense. But that’s doubtful to happen either, people are 100% controlled by their wage and can’t even be bothered to take notice of what is going on around them let alone care enough to even bother to effect local change, but then we are all guilty of that.

            And sorry, you did not say violent uprising, but we (I) tend to associate uprising with there being a certain level of violence, but not necessarily, I read more into that than there was.

            I am so sick of this system and feel so small in it while being herded around it that I don’t even know myself a real workable solution.

            So we will just attend blogs like this one and enjoy (I do) the discussions till the lights go out.
            It is good to have a place to express ourselves even if it is with words on a screen, I appreciate my screen.

            It is ironic actually, I read your blog a while before I posted a comment on it, now I can’t keep my gob shut. lol
            Sometimes I end up saying more than I intended, I can’t help it, it just flows out once I get started. 🙂

              You go for it girl. This is a free speech zone (within reason of course but I give a very very wide berth). I won’t accept illiterate hate speech just for the sake of it – particularly if targeted at me! lol Constructive criticism even if I don’t agree with it is all fine (and good in fact coz it gets me thinking too) but sheer dross (and badly written or just hateful) dross, no. That said, in 4 years I’ve only had one or two comments like that even with all this Icke stuff.

          I can post everything but my main post, how bizarre. I think your blog is being watched and is being monitored and interfered with, (hacked, possibly) paranoia, yes, but with credence.

          Maybe there is a piece of code in the hidden header of the Word press server of your page, can only guess.
          Your pages scare the shit out of the establishment. Haha.

    She is the richest bitch in Europe, she is not poor and she is secretly a Rothschild! Queen Victoria’s Mother was used to sire the Rothschild bloodline so their filth would be within the Royal Bloodlines. Even Queen Victoria herself was used to sirewith Nathan Rothschild’s Nephew, Lionel Nathan Rothschild so the interbreeding would keep the Ashkenazi Rothschild as Psychopathic as possible.

    Your list of perks is missing one important item : FAKE PREGNANCY BELLY WITH ADJUSTABLE STRAPS .
    There is no way this little bitch had a baby .She looked as she just had appointment at hairdresser`s .
    Ask any midwife, any mother .Ask any guy who`s wife or girfriend just had a baby ,how much women `s body changes.Roundness of the face ,ankles ,knees ,hips ,tights etc.
    IT NEVER GOES TO PRE-PREGNANCY SHAPE..THAT`S WHY 30-YEAR OLDS NEVER HAVE THE SAME BODY AS 16 YEARS OLD.
    IT HAS BEEN DONE MANY TIMES BEFORE !!! Look at this twat Beyonce singing and dancing at the concerts and being heavily” pregnant “.
    At least Sarah Jessica Parker was honest about it .
    Long time ago rich people had used poor women to breastfeed their babies .Now they use them for surrogacy.
    And last point : There is no way a woman strong enough to leave her family and children to go and work miles away so she can give the best start in life for her children is going to commit suicide because of “shame” .
    WHAT “SHAME “FOR FUCK SAKE !!!!! I know this type of women.I am one of them and trust me this is the biggest bullshit of all .Also so much fuss was made about witch going to hospital with pregnancy sickness….
    24/7 NEWS as nobody puked ever before .THAT WAS DONE TO IN-PRINT IN PEOPLES MIND THAT SHE REALLY IS PREGNANT .Spivey was right but to be honest I wasn`t sure in the beginning . I was soo wrong …

    • earthlinggb said, on February 23, 2014 at 10:41 pm

      I know it sounds crazy to anyone reading this but I do tend toward agreement. It’s just it is so “out there” a concept and there is no way of proving that I tend to shy away from discussing such things. I do not discount it though Sara. Not at all.
