The bottom line is...whatever your ostensible politics: royalist or republican, it's just a fact that during most of her reign the rich got richer and the poor got poorer. |
Its remarkable to think that Income inequality is actually worse now in the UK than it was in 1945: seven years before she became queen.
And why? Because the rich have amassed wealth by means of privilege: the privilege of lawyers and law. The example of course has been set by by the royals themselves who have the further benefit of their own personal tax avoidance laws.
Thus following your own example, the rich avoid paying for the tools of the state which actually maintain their power, whilst the poor pay for the privilege of being repressed and ill served by it.
So Gawd bless ya Ma'am: you set the worst example possible. You "put your arm around them..." whilst your other hand was actually riffling their wallet.
And like the best pickpockets the victims still have no idea...
