Health Ministers have been advising pensioners to Save having to get a flu jab each year by not queuing outside the Post Office every Tuesday morning in the pouring rain an hour before it opens. "They won't run out of money. It's not like the queue outside the butcher's during the war."
Gordon Brown was almost quoted as saying "You would save taxpayers tonnes of dosh and not make the highstreets look so untidy."
Our wonderful Prime minister also gave advice to people trying to sell their houses in this economic slump...."When selling your house, you could maybe replace your furniture with children's tables and chairs, and use a dwarf estate agent. Instantly, your house will seem more roomy than it actually is."
