Today Chancellor George Osborne announced major cuts across the board to readdress the failing UK economy but one announcement has left many with puzzled faces.

Osborne said 'If we all do our bit these cuts will be minimal, therefore I ask everybody to look down the back of your sofas, check your car ash trays and turn out the pockets of that suit you only wear at weddings. If you find any small change it's mine.'

'He'll have the shirt off our back next,' said one opposition MP and another compared Osborne to Fagin.

However, today Tory and Lib Dem MPs waved their calculators across the floor of the Commons shouting at the opposition 'do the maths.'

Osborne said 'If everybody were to find just 54 pence that's over £33 million towards the deficit.'
