Osborne says we need cuts to deal with Britain’s budget deficit.

But for some things, it seems there is plenty of cash on offer.

The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority is expected to recommend a pay rise for MPs.

This amounts to a staggering 15 percent—although it’s still less than half what some MPs demanded in January.

Meanwhile the queen grabbed a 5 percent pay rise last week.

And William and Kate’s palace is having a £1 million refurbishment before a new royal scrounger arrives.

Good to know we’re all in it together.
