  1. I received this e-mail today....makes sense to me

    Dear Mr. Darling,

    Please find below my suggestion for fixing Britain 's economy. Instead
    of giving billions of pounds to banks that will squander the money on
    lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan. You can
    call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:

    There are about 20 million people over 50 in the work force. - Pay
    them £1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the
    following stipulations:

    1) They MUST retire. Twenty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.

    2) They MUST buy a new British CAR. Twenty million cars ordered -
    Auto Industry fixed.

    3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing
    Crisis fixed.

    4) They must send their kids to school / college /university - Crime rate fixed

    5) Buy £50 of alcohol / tobacco a week There's your money back in duty
    / tax etc

    It can't get any easier than that!

    P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of parliament pay back
    their falsely claimed expenses and second home allowances
  2. Actually, something that daft would probably work :lol:
  3. Or, on the other hand, this is a nation of 60million, just give them all £1million each so they all retire and then Gordon can have his beloved immigrants fill all the vacancies.
