Bow Group Research Fellow Chris Davies criticised Femi Oluwole for attacking the monarchy on the weekend that Queen Elizabeth II marked 70 years on the throne, telling the anti-Brexit campaigner to “ease off with the virtue signalling, bile, and bias”.
Oluwole tweeted on Friday: “Can you imagine if the Royal Family said: ‘Because people are literally starving right now, we’re going to pay for the Platinum Jubilee out of our own private fortunes and give all the cash that would have been spent on us, to the poorest councils in the UK’?”
Many – who the anti-Brexit campaigner later branded “rabid royalists” – responded to Oluwole that the monarchy is a big contributor in revenue through tourism and remarked on the Queen’s seven decades of service to the country and Commonwealth.
Chris Davies, Research Fellow for Economics and Construction for The Bow Group, responded: “Here’s a wild gesture. Just once, ease off with the virtue signalling, bile, and bias. I’ll wait 70 years.”
