"Fixed the roof while the sun shone"


Like many pensioners, the 82-year-old resident of London SW1 worries about keeping her home repaired. Her rooms have not been redecorated since the old king died, the wiring's 50 years old, the tiles are slipping and the lead work on the roofs is more patched than original.

There are leaky roofs at Buckingham Palace and Queenie is struggling to find the necessary cash. There are hard times for everyone – even for the royal family. The Queen is reportedly worried about Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, which are in dire need of various repairs.

One may be on £40m a year, but one still needs £16m to fix the palace roof. Well that nice Mr. Brown fixed the roof while the sun shone.
