While working class Brits struggle to meet the ever increasing demands of financially running a household, it's good to know that during these hard times we are still able to fund some really worthwhile causes.
You really couldn’t make this up – Britain may be skint, but we’ve just come up with £4m to fund the Ethiopian Spice girls!
That’s right, £4 million quid of our money going to pop group Yegna who apparently seek to empower women in Africa by singing some songs.
We’ve also just laid out £5 million so Bangladesh can have its own version of Question Time – no doubt with rigged audiences too.
Britain is broke?
We might have pensioners freeze this winter, we might have many relying on food banks in order to eat, but we can always come up with £millions for some barmy foreign cause.
