In the latest desperate attempt to pull the nation out of economic stagnation, Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron announced today that the clocks would go forward by 24 hours on Sunday.
The Government dismissed the objections of sane people against the plan, by stating that the move is necessary in order to provide the country with the competitive edge that has been lacking for the last century.
In a statement to the press this morning an excited Mr Cameron said: "By putting the clocks forward 24 hours, Britain will be one day ahead of everyone else. While the rest of the World is plodding through Monday, Go-Ahead Britain will already be half way through Tuesday. This means that we will know what is happening before the others and we should be able to make an absolute killing on the stock markets".
"I can't understand why I didn't think of it before" he added.
