Not everybody is delighted with the news that Prince William and Kate Middleton are going to be parents again; one taxpayer in particular is distraught.

Rhys Joseph, a plumber from near Wigan, was visibly upset after realising that this would simply mean a higher tax bill.

Joseph commented that he believed that two children were plenty for any family.

“Now we have to pay another little bugger through 20 years of private education and fund his Armani nappies until he learns to shit for himself,” said Joseph.

“My street really needs the bins sorting. The roads have more holes in them than Swiss cheese, but the money is going on a little brat instead.

The hard-working plumber continued his thoughts.

“William should be more like Harry. I don’t mind paying for his partying.”
