'Pay raise' Dutch Royal Family
I have another ticket for speeding and I'm going to sue the dutch royal family.
Last week we had 'Prinsjesdag' here in the Netherlands (we are a monarchy as you probably know). 'Prinsjesdag' is all about money and budgets, a golden coach, hats, a huge royal chair and a briefcase.
The government decided to give Queen Beatrix, crown prince Willem Alexander and his wife Maxima a payraise in 2010.
Budgets are cut on education, health care. People are laid off. And 'we' are going to give members of the royal family a pay raise. And to make it worse, they accept.
Is it me? Or is there something wrong here
