Maybe, that’s enough for the disbandment of the Household Calvary (long overdue in my book) replaced by a semi-decent security system to protect her Majesty. As for the poncing around queens birthday parade etc, well there are enough out of work actors who do the parading around stuff if still required.Not true. The qualification requirements are actually fairly low, you don't need a university education even. But they definitely take into account your family and their military history, which school you attended and I've known people to be turned down based on their accent.
How much are the mess bills in the household cavalry? You think a lad from a council estate with A star A levels has got a chance at getting in there?
