Cameron, Clegg and Osborne to live on equivalent of a Minimum Wage for three months

In response to government's war on the poor we would like the men making the decisions, David Cameron, Nick Clegg and George Osborne, to live with the ramifications of their cuts for three months.
They are to live on the equivalent of a full time minimum wage salary (£1,067.73 per month) with no help from their peers.
This should include all travel expenses and other expenses such as food and energy bills.
Since they believe these austerity measures are for the good of the country then perhaps they should live as the vast majority of the country have been forced to do then maybe they'll finally understand how the average Brit is forced to live rather than basing their decisions on conjecture, anecdotes and easily manipulated statistics.
