image for Shock Report: "Strikes Worse Than Snow"
Strike 'Worse than Snow'

A shock report from a think tank,financed by someone in the Cayman Islands, has declared that the Public Service strikes are worse than last year's snow.

'The snow was cold but in the nature of things. The Public Service Strike, on the other hand, could have been avoided and is thus more harmful.'

The report was seized on by the Government who thanked the resident of the Cayman Islands for his patriotism in financing the report. 'We need citizens of the Cayman Islands to stand by us in this way' said David Cameron.

However the citizen who must remain nameless so that he can continue to avoid paying tax, has been speaking to me about his 'patriotic gesture'. Sworn to secrecy I cannot reveal the person concerned since being welcomed so hospitably onto his private beach. However he looked remarkably like Rupert Murdoch.'

Meanwhile, this reporter will have to wait until tomorrow to get a book from the local library. I have contacted the 'Daily Mail' about this outrage and they will be printing my story on their front page.

Make j.w.'s day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
