With unemployment among the working classes reaching record levels, a similar problem could well permeate the upper classes.

Increasing numbers of toffs are worrying about 'joblessness' (which is a posh word for 'unemployment'). And hundreds of JSGs (Joblessness Support Groups) are emerging all over the country. "It sounds much better than having to sign on at the 'dole office'," said Henry Whittington-Whattington, a jobless landowner in Surrey.

Lots of other people are also being seriously affected by 'joblessness', since many of them cannot pronounce 'joblessness' properly (especially after a few drinks or when eating a big biscuit).

Support groups for people who cannot pronounce 'joblessness' may well be set up all over the country. These will be known as 'Special Help Centres for Mispronunciation of Joblessness' (SHCMJ) - as soon as a Government spokesman is able to spit out the proposal in parliament.
