Times are Tough: No new $92 million yacht for Queen

Written by Tradeshow Booth Guy on January 18, 2012 – 5:26 pm -

There was talk about asking British taxpayers to cough up $92 million for a new yacht for Queen Elizabeth II.  Does her yacht (shown on right) need a replacement?

The yacht was to be a present to the Queen to mark her Diamond Jubilee in June but Prime Minister David Cameron nixed the idea.  His spokesman said it would be inappropriate for public funds to be spent on a new yacht during these times of economic hardship.

However, the government would be supportive of private efforts to provide a new ship for the queen.

No word yet on where to send contributions.
