Penny pinching from those less well placed makes Baby Jesus cry.

Letter sent to Daily Express (31/3/15).. original and published versions.

Original:

At a time when the Queen’s popularity has never been higher, it is saddening to read that the lower echelon staff at Buckingham Palace feel that they have to go on strike to achieve fair treatment.

We all view the Royal Family as having more money than they could possibly ever spend, a view enforced by just one tour of The Palace.

Most visitor’s would assume that staff would be treated not just fairly but generously.

Hearing that a spokesman has claimed that extra duties are voluntary, contrary to the staff claim, suggests a mean-minded attitude by those responsible.

This is under Prince Charles Chairmanship and places him in a very uncharitable light.

The Royal Family is being made to appear very Downton Abbey, for the sake of what must be a small percentage of Buckingham Palace gate receipts.
