More than half of Brits believe King Charles should reward for his coronation, exclusive polling for Yahoo has found.
Deemed a ‘state occasion’, the UK government funds the coronation bill and, therefore, the taxpayer.
The Mirror has reported the 6 May service and weekend celebrations fetch the UK £250m.
The late Queen Elizabeth’s crowning in 1953 cost £1.57m (the issue has described this as being £47m in today’s money) — all for being a far more extensive and elaborate ceremony than Charles’s will.
Queen Elizabeth saw over 8000 guests take up.
Westminster Abbey, for instance, while Charles, in difference, will have more than 2200.
The procession route, as was the service, was lengthy back in 1953.
The Mirror describes mounting policing costs that have pushed the total bill for Charles’s coronation. However, the palace generally needs comment on security affairs, so it is improbable that a full figure for this facet will be made public.
The poll outcome comes amid a debate about the ongoing part of the monarchy in modern society — the cost related to the Royal Family and their wealth attracting more scrutiny than ever.
55% of interviewees said that Charles should be footing the bill for the coronation himself, 31% disagreed and felt it appropriate for the government and taxpayers to pay for it, and a further 14% responded that they didn’t know either way.
Younger people were the least likely to support the government reward for the occasion at only 19% — this support rose to 46% amongst those over 65.
There were regional differences in how people responded to the statement: “King Charles III should pay for his coronation”.
Respondents in Northern Ireland were the most likely to agree with the statement at 67%. Scotland and Wales also agreed strongly at 57% and 59%, respectively.
A new and improbable weapon in the fight against climate change is flexible working. As co-working spaces are increasingly located outside major city centres and business districts, lengthy and sustainable damaging shuttles are becoming a thing of the past. The Regus study analyzed the environmental good for local economies through the growth of flexible workspaces in secondary towns and cities and suburban locations of major cities in 19 countries.
For India, the carbon saving will reduce 181,000 metric tonnes of carbon emissions per year. In foul cities like Delhi, where pollution routinely extend to hazardous levels, we will witness a significant impact on air standard. The Suburban Economic Study, ordered by Regus and conducted by independent economists, projected the environmental sake of locating flexible workspaces in smaller towns, cities and suburban areas between now and 2029.
As the growth of flexible working explodes in areas outside of major cities, new exploration reveals that, by 2029, the ‘outer city’ office separate will reduce carbon release by the equivalent of 1,280,000 transatlantic soaring between London and New York each year. That’s 2,560,000 metric tonnes of carbon cease from entering the atmosphere yearly just by working nearer to home.
Mark Dixon, CEO of Regus’ parent company IWG, said, “Commuting can be intolerable, unfriendly, and incredibly time-consuming. It is also a huge source of worldwide pollution. In an age where every business and individual is responsible for their environmental impact, reducing them into major cities is keeping them from attaining their responsibility.”
Suburban flexible workspaces can play a notable role in helping to decrease reliquiae fuel consumption, carbon emissions and other pollutants to reduce carbon footprint. Enduring long commute hours is environmentally damaging and is becoming a thing of the past.
“Over the next decade, we expect to open many more locations in smaller towns, cities and suburban areas. Our vision is that soon, there will be a professional workspace available on every corner, ending the idea of commuting for good. This will benefit our health, as well as that of our planet.”
The difference one co-working office makes.
By allowing people to work closer to home, a local office space will save workers an average of 9,532 hours per year in reduced commuting times, equating to a reduction of 54 metric tonnes of carbon emissions per centre per year.
The report also revealed that moving from flexible working at home to a co-working space would benefit the environment.
That’s because it’s likely more energy efficient to ventilate and light a shared space than a home for one solitary worker.
Harsh Lambah, Country Manager – India, IWG, said, “Urban Commuting is one of India’s most energy- and pollution-intensive activities, increasing carbon emissions exponentially. The growth of opportunities in suburban cities and options for people to work closer to home can tremendously affect them and the environment. The study reiterates the potential of flexible workspaces in the coming years by highlighting the economic and environmental impact for businesses and people working out of flexible workspaces.”
