Wills & Kate Surprised To Learn Age Of Entitlement Over In Australia

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Australia today, only to be handed a pair of gloves, a scrubbing brush and a message to ‘get to work’.

The couple had been expecting to watch a traditional Aboriginal dance, followed by a cruise on Sydney Harbour, but instead spent their first afternoon cleaning public toilet facilities in a local park. Tomorrow they have been told they will be required to help with heavy lifting at a waste site in the city’s outer west.

Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey reminded the couple that entitlement was a thing of the past and everyone was required to pitch in to clean up the mess left by Labor.
