Freezing pensioners who can't afford to shop anywhere else but Lidul have been subject to cake bombardment from George Osbornes Palace windows in Versailles, Knightsbridge.
Cries of "Let them eat cake" have been heard from within. Media articles pointing out Lidul Christmas solutions comprising Christmas to New Year all inclusive hampers for £6 have been causing a huge number of pre-season Samaritan calls.
"We have to find money from somewhere to balance the books, so we have hiked prices up for more V.A.T. and forced pensioners to shop at German supermarkets at Christmas" said Parliamentary "guillotine style" debate expert, French 17th century Aristocrat George. "We fought a bloody war to avoid having to shop in German Supermarkets" a pensioner said this morning.
