Ok who do you imagine is spending £400,000 on a wedding dress, £120,000 on their honeymoon?

So that's 28 registered nurses for a year, 26 police constables, 28 social carers, 3 1/2 prime ministers, 2.4 UK average price houses, 7.3 average "affordable" houses.

and the best yet 1,060 shelter box aid packages.

I'm starting to feel physically sick. Certainly not money well spent, even if it's their own, of course they won't be paying the security and policing bill or even the cost of clearing out the rough sleepers that make the place look untidy.

That also the cost of keeping a children's hospice in Cornwall going for three months.

Nope, it's a whole sack of spuds. disgusting over indulgence shoved in the face during a time of enforced austerity will do it every time. I wouldn't moan about the benefit scroungers if they showed some respect for the rest of the UK population.

I wouldn't want their life even if you paid me as much as they are allegedly paid - it would be a living nightmare. Anyway, i think they're rather good value when all is said and done.

Quite unusual for the Gridian, made me chuckle though - https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...worth-tuppence

And you think I've got a problem, bet you know that Samaritans number off by heart.

A leading UK wedding planner has today revealed the eye-watering cost of the 'little things' at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding including a possible bill of £26,000 for sausage rolls alone.

Good old Greggs must be elated!
