image for Bingo! Now available to workers aswell as the unemployed
£1256pa - Bingo here I come!!

Thanks to George Osbourne's 2014 budget, the pastime of Bingo is no longer confined to the elite and those on benefits.

As a resulting cut in Bingo tax, even the common working class can afford to take part in the game which was only affordable to those on ridiculous benefits and the upper tax bracket.

We spoke to Trevor Firksworth, a labourer from up't north "It's great. I work 50 hours a week for £65 pounds, and want some enjoyment at the end of my week. Now, thanks to this budget change, I can have a card of Bingo and try and win a meat hamper!"

Unemployed Chantelle Price was less enthused "We'll get people coming in stinking of sweat and hard graft, while I'm trying to spend my, I mean our, child tax credit from my 18 kids. I don't want to mingle with their type."

Make Gary Potter's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
