How many half-crowns?

Byline: Denis Kilcommons ,

The annual debate about whether the royal family are value for money continues.

It costs the nation pounds 36.7m a year to keep the Royals.

Too much, cry closet republicans.

Not at all, reply monarchists. It only works out at 61p per man, woman and child in the country.

But of course, every man, woman and child in the country don't get the option to say no.

I wonder, if they were asked for 61p each, how much would actually be raised for the royal budget?
