Following an upsurge in the adoption of African orphans, the chancellor, Gordon Brown, is to introduce a new tax governing the importation of these children into the country.
"In the main it is the more wealthy individuals who are brining these orphans into the country." Gordon Brown told a committee of MPs. "We should tax the little bastards before they set one tiny little toe on British soil. Why, our country is already full of our own bastards thanks to the lucrative benefits we award to our wonderful British single mothers. We can use this taxation to reward the long-serving unemployed workforce of Britain."
According to Mr. Brown's draft report the adoptive parents shall pay a flat fee of £2,000 per child they bring into the country then a further £100 per kg.
The proposal is to be debated in the commons next week.
