Just what the ConDems need: a royal wedding

Call me cynical?

Yes, OK.

I plead guilty.

Update: if you don’t believe me, try this from the Mail:

It is hoped the ceremony will give a huge boost to the nation and the economy as crippling public sector spending cuts hit home.

I liked this in the Guardian:

Graham Smith, spokesman for Republic, a group campaigning for an end to the monarchy, said: "We mustn't see the government wasting limited resources paying for a major set-piece event … if people are being told to tighten their belts, if the government is making thousands unemployed, if welfare payments are being slashed, it would be sickening for the government to allow a single penny more to be spent on the royals at this time."
