Even Kiddies Piggy Banks Aren't Safe!

That's the message from Trainee Chancellor Alistair Darling today after he announced the revitalisation of 19th Century style Press Gangs to roam around the UK raising funds for the Government coffers.

'The plan is to position teams near cashpoints throughout the UK' said the eagle looking economic gambler 'and when the person withdrawing the cash has it in their hands - they rush up, give them the cosh then grab and run away with the loot to deposit it in the nearest branch of Northern Rock'.

Darling has caused great controversy with his astounding economic plan where he recently gave hundreds of billions of UK taxpeyers money to banks, only to announce that he is going to loan it back from them at high interest rates so that we can pay for it all over again.

'In these tough economic times, it is essential that I look to the past for my ideas for the future' Darling said 'My next idea is for a Windows tax - however Bill Gates is said to be not too happy with that idea so I am holding off on that until I have re-introduced income generating feudal towns and Lord of the Manor Highway and Footway tolls'
