One has Gorn Creckers - Queen to make cut backs

The Queen has ordered a festive crackdown to acknowledge the credit crunch starting with her Christmas crackers. "The directive has come from the top that the family must be in tune with the rest of the country," a royal source was quoted as saying by the News of the World.

"She is aware that extravagance would not be welcomed at this time." The monarch has axed posh gifts from inside the crackers. In the past, the family’s hand-made crackers have contained items like Montblanc gold cuff-links and expensive lighters. But Royal warrant holder Tom Smith, which has made crackers for the monarch for 100 years, has been ordered to use cheaper gifts this year.
