PAUL ROUTLEDGE on "ROYAL TOILET WATCH"
"One's palaces are...... falling down, and one's builders simply aren't up to the job. Such is the sad state of affairs affecting the Queen, "let down" by delayed repairs to the 360 properties in her Royal Estate. A £36million backlog has built up - about the only thing that has - and Her Majesty is "concerned at the deterioration of her palaces". Well, one would be, wouldn't one? Perhaps Santa will bring her a trowel."
