image for Tough Decisions for the Government Ahead
Space Volunteers Solving Problems

With economic gloom causing problems for Spoof writers the Government is faced with some difficult decisions.

Clearly there are too many people around and plans to gas old people who are living too long have been secretly amended as it was discovered that gassing them would cost too much. These plans have 'been put on the back burner' said a Government Minister aware of the increasing energy bills.

Efforts to get the energy companies to bring down their prices could result in a change of plans.

Unemployed people are also a headache and there are far too many prisoners. To deal with this a new Space exploration venture is being funded by Richard Branson with Government help. Already volunteers are awaiting the one day training exercise required for those venturing into space. 'This wonderful public/private partnership' declared David Cameron 'will be a do or die effort to improve the economy. With the savings from this scheme we will be able to continue in Afghanistan until the end of the century, keeping more people gainfully employed.'

The Government is asking the population for more good ideas to deal with the gloom. So, over to you. What suggestions would you make to the Government?
