Posh and Becks tighten their YSL belts

The Beckhams, our unofficial royal family, have taken George Osbourne's belt-tightening demands to heart, and have sacked swathes of their 'staff' - including six gardeners from their estate in France and a loyal cleaner who had been polishing the Versace teaspoons for eight years. Other efficiency savings include getting the remaining head gardener to double up as their chauffeur. We bet he's over the moon...

A pal of the Becks told The Sun, 'This very no-nonsense accountant gave it to Vic straight and said, 'You CAN afford to employ all of these people. But why the hell DO you?' Once the accountant pointed out that level of staffing was not required Vic pushed the button. There has been a large downsize. David and Victoria are multi-millionaires but that doesn't mean they have to waste money - and they were haemorrhaging it.'

Well we find it heartwarming that at this time of austerity and recession, the Beckhams are sharing our pain...
