Few Uneasy Questions…

While Queen’s jubilee celebrations are now a history, few unanswered, uneasy questions still troubles me.

Is the money spent on celebrations – at this time of austerity – justifiable?  Why there is a silence on loss of revenue due to an extra bank holiday?

Mind you, I am neither against a day-off from work, nor against celebrations.  But how can one explain the expenditure to an unemployed youth? How do we justify the loss of revenue – estimated 0.5% knock off on economic output by Mervyn King – to a teacher who was constantly reminded about revenue loss due to his/her strike demanding for their rights?
