An economic defence of the British monarchy

Earlier this year I remember hearing someone complaining about the British monarchy, that it was paid for doing not much at all by the British taxpayer, blah blah blah.

Please look at this lovely little animation to see a simple yet compelling defence of the monarchy on purely economic grounds… by an American. By all means object to the monarchy on ideological grounds, if you must. But let’s hear no more fallacious economic whining on behalf of the poor British taxpayer… at least when it comes to the monarchy.

Mind you, to the ideological objectors I still say

phooey
