Another Skint Pensioner

Not surprising to hear that another OAP is on her uppers, times are hard and it is the elderly most at threat as the Government hack away at state handouts.
Luckily, this pensioner is also the Queen and she is down to her last million because running around the World waving at people isn't cheap and the £36m she gets from us just isn't enough to keep her to the lifestyle to which she has become accustomed.
With a Conservative Government in power, the usual solution to a problem is to privatise it but that doesn't seem to be mentioned here so what can we do with an out of date institution that is a drain on our meagre resources?
Simples, pack her off to Australia or any other part of the Commonwealth.
I have never understood why she is the head of 53 other nations but the Australians, Canadians or Tongans never dip into their pockets to pay for the Royal family.
Instead of selling her off to the Americans or someone who are silly enough to like out Royals, let's pack her and her family off to members of the Commonwealth. Let her live there for a year at a time and let them pay for her.
It's only fair, we're all in it together, Ma'am and you will love Pakistan, North Waziristan is particularly lovely at this time of year.
