…that with a 66% increase in their benefits, one or two of them might crack an actual smile.
But look at them. Mrs Parker Bowles isn’t even looking at the people who provide her more than comfortable lifestyle. Charlie looks like he lost a pound and found a penny. Kate Middleclass is at least making an effort, but goodness it’s a fixed rictus smile. One bairn looks like it’s teething and the other like it needs to pee. William and Harry look irritated or bored. Phil looks vaguely bemused. Fortunately, Ed the lad is obscured from view. And, needless to say, the queen looks her usual grumpy self.
Some benefit claimants are just NEVER satisfied, no matter what you do for them.
I’m looking forward to the next time that the Daily Diana or the Daily Heil come up with an oversized working-class family that gets thousands in benefits from hard-working families up and down the country, and which needs two council houses to live in.
I wonder if, unlike the upper-class one that fits the same descriptor, THEY will crack a smile…
