A family that has been left with precisely £6.34 to create a magical Christmas for their children has been expressing their deepest sentimental joy after a 22-foot Christmas Tree with lights was erected in Downing Street.

Father Andy said, ‘When we caught a glimpse of Mrs May’s festivities while wandering past Curry’s on the High Street, it kind of put the whole thing into perspective.’

‘What’s a £10 Christmas Bonus that we had under the old system when we can spend quality time looking at a load of other people having a jolly old time instead.’

We asked Andy if his family had been offered any sort of budgeting advice from the DWP for the festive season.

He said, ‘Yes I have been given extensive budgeting advice to manage the grand sum of fuck all that I have left over after rent, Council Tax and bills.’
