Blackpool fritters away £4000 for a loo 'fit for the queen'
And she may not even use it.
Several people I have spoken to recently say that Britain could be a third world country in a few years time, and one of those people I spoke to worked in UNESCO in Paris. Yet, there is one person, one of the many in this country, who will always be living in the First World, and that's the 'q'ueen.
Shelling out ridiculous amounts of money on the 'r'oyals, who are unelected, doesn't help, we are supposed to be tightening up our purses.
For some reason, Blackpool have spent a huge amount of money on it whIch will go down the pan if she doesn't even use it. A royal flush shouldn't cost £4000.
In the UK, we have various equality laws but this story smacks of stonking 'class discrimination or Class War''. Employees at the Opera House are unable to use it because they are 'deemed unworthy' to 'her maj' yet they work extremely hard on the royal Variety Show putting it altogether, in fact they should use it for all the effort they put in.
Can you see the queen in overalls painting the scenery or sewing costumes for long hours? I think the queen should use theirs.
Just what would Orwell say?
"With just weeks to go until Her Majesty is in town for the Royal Variety Show, workers are transforming the Opera House. This includes revamped dressing rooms, bars and seating.
And should The Queen need a comfort break during the five hour show on December 7, there will be a new lavatory available for her sole use.
The current Royal toilet suite, being renovated by a team of maintenance men and front of house staff, is tucked away on the circle foyer in the Opera House, where it has gathered dust since Her Majesty's last visit in 1955. Staff are repainting the walls, replacing the doors, toilet, sink, flooring and ceiling.
However, The Queen never used the room when she visited half a century ago".
