Some Friday Fun?

12:39 UK time, Friday, 27 June 2008

66p_203.jpgOn any other day it might be seen as crass to to draw any sort of equivalence between a loaf of bread and the head of state, but on the day Buckingham Palace publishes its accounts it wouldn't seem unreasonable.

The Queen and the Royal Family, we're told, have cost each taxpayer 66p during the past 12 months... (roughly the price of an economy sliced white loaf).

That's up 4p on last year, but what with the credit markets crunching and inflation strapping on its crampons nice and tight, 66p ain't what it used to be.

So, royalty aside, what else might you expect to bag for exactly 66p these days? Answers on a comments form, if you please, below.
