Socialist Worker’s idea for a jubilee gift

Issue No. 2286

Top Tory ministers think we should buy the royals a yacht as a “gift” to celebrate this year’s diamond jubilee.

The cost of the yacht is estimated to be around

£60 million.

A guillotine, made simply of wood, a metal blade and a rope, would be far cheaper.

Socialist Worker suggests this would be a far more fitting tribute to the royal scroungers.
