A woman wearing a pair of leather trousers that cost £1,000 has explained to Britain the importance of living within its means.
Theresa May, whose husband is senior executive at a $1.4 trillion investment fund, has explained that literally no one in the country has the money to pay nurses more and so it would require borrowing instead.
Mrs May, also wearing a £500 cashmere sweater, told Britain: “Do you want to go bankrupt? Do you?
“Because it’s all very well saying things like ‘Five pairs of my trousers would have paid for safe cladding at Grenfell’ – but then who would have paid for the five pairs of trousers?
“There’s isn’t a magic £1,000 leather trouser tree, you know.”
Mrs May, who spent £1 billion of the country’s money in order to retain control of it, added: “So we’d have to increase the deficit, like Greece, and there would be no jobs or nurses at all, and I would still have my leather trousers.”
Former prime minister David Cameron, architect of austerity and personally worth £40 million, waded in to tell the country: “You selfish bastards.”
