image for Stealth Tax Cuts to be Introduced
"Vast Milk Teat"

Whitehall 13 Nov 2008 Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced today at Whitehall the introduction of "Stealth Tax Cuts".

During the brief press conference he explained that he would be introducing a series of these "Stealth Tax Cuts" to mollify the small businessman and the average family on the street.

"The introduction of the "Stealth Tax Cuts" program will allow the our government to enact tax cuts that no one will be able to see or use. Through the use of copious amounts of red tape and unitelligable multiple forms we will be able to say we have made tax cuts without actually having to give up the vast milk teat of the everyday taxpayer or small business." stated Mr. Brown with a heavy snort.

The immediate response from the Conservative leader David Cameron was to introduce his own "Even More Stealthy Tax Cuts Gone Wild Version 2.o" which would come with free ringtones and a £10.00 gift certificate from Starbucks.

The news sparked a panic in the City as traders did not have a clue as to what this would mean to their Christmas bonuses.
