Nepotism

BBC NEWS | England | Cornwall | Charles under fire on 'cronyism'

Prince Charles has been accused of "cronyism" after the Duchy of Cornwall employed his sister-in-law as an interior designer.

Mr Davidson said: "He seems to be giving it to this person just because she's the sister of his wife.

"It's nepotism and cronyism."

Sorry - giving relatives jobs isn't "cronyism" in the Royal Family, it is how the whole hereditary system works! It is cronyism when Tony gives serious jobs to jolly decent guys he happened to share rooms with...

That is a bit rich coming from an MP. It is well known that most all of them claim "secretarial" allowances for their wives and family members. And in their case, it is taxpayers money not their own.
I have no great respect or admiration for the royal wingnut, but he is entitled to spend his own money as he pleases.

It is cronyism when Tony gives serious jobs to jolly decent guys he happened to share rooms with...

... and who are mostly all Scottish.
