The shameless millionaire Chancellor George Osborne (who coined the phrase *we're all in this together", jetted off on a luxury skiing holiday - leaving Britain to suffer the backlash of his vicious policies.
He went on the piste as struggling families faced huge rises in fuel duties, rail fares and VAT.
That's not to mention benefit reductions, pay cuts, job losses and the rise in university tuition fees.
The estimated cost to the tax payer for protection for him and his family is £1.1 million.
Meanwhile his Deputy Vice-Chancellor, took a two-hour lunch with a financial friend, to discuss the effects of the Governments rise in VAT to 20%.
The meals for them both cost £335, no doubt on expenses.
Considering that some unemployed people get only £100 a week to live on, and that the three waiters who served them are getting £6.25 an hour, it is not surprising that one of waiters named Altaf said to our intrepid decrepit reporter Inchcock, "It makes me think I might have made a mistake in coming to this country to study, and now they are putting up the tuition fess as well, and I thought Gordon Brown was greedy!"
No tips were left when the rich diners left.
