In an initiative that has been welcomed in the City the Government has brought in a scheme first proposed by City financier Ken Splurge.
It rewards thieves who have successfully fooled the tax authorities about their winnings. As these thieves have got away with fooling the authorities they are to be rewarded with a special bonus. In future any penalties against them, if they are found out, will be reduced.
In announcing this scheme, Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osbore woke up several MP's who had dozed off in Chamber. They rose with a cheer - at last the Tories were rewarding initiative.
Those who complained at this procedure, remarking that it was rewarding those who had procured their cash by ill-gotten means, were mocked as lacking a real sense of business.
Not satisfied with such a brilliant idea, Osbore had more up his sleeve. He was so humble about his next announcement he decided to hide it to see if people could find it out for themselves. In order to alleviate the distress caused by people living too long Osbore is to provide tax relief for all acts of mercy killing.
But the main accolade went to the true British patriots who supported Britain by removing their finances from Britain so they could not be taxed. 'Such Patriots' said Osbore 'show us all how to support the country we love!'
