Handbags   (The sad, the bad and the ugly. Non-productive stuff here.)

I have no problems with anyone marrying and to be honest she looked stunning and they both played their parts and appear to really care for each other. However, my concerns are no matter how much this wedding brings in for the Country, there is probably the same amount if not more going out on the lavish events linked to this, not to mention the security which must have cost an arm and a leg. Although I am no accountant to balance the books so they say there needs to be a better profit than loss - and on this occasion I cannot see this is the case.

Pomp and splendour are fine if there is a bottomless pit to fund it. Realistically in this day and age, the shakey ecomonic situation in this Country, coupled with the increasing number of people losing their livelihoods, homes and in some cases resorting to living on the streets, we need to get more "balanced" priorities. In my view, a wedding of this calibre would be well down the list.

I cannot get my head around how someone with so much wealth (which she will never, ever spend) can be so oblivious and out of touch will ordinary people and their situations, not to mention the state of her Country.
