New Advice for the Government

The Government's Special Adviser, Lord Young has advised Banks that they have never had it so good. 'Bailed out by tax payers after you ruined the economy. The Labour Party blamed. Now you are back in profit and bonuses are coming with Father Christmas.'

But David Cameron quickly realised that Young's use of a phrase first used by Harold MacMillan was out of date. 'You can't tell people they have never had it so good every twenty years. We need a new message to chime with these Happy times like "We're all in this shit together".'

Government insiders are outraged because Young has used the phrase that they had in store for the next election, when they are confident that the country will be realising that some hardship was needed to get back on the path to prosperity.

So Lord Young resigned and his place is to be taken by Lord Tebbitt, who has been preparing himself with bike rides through the Scottish countryside. He has found great support for the Coalition Government among the sheep. Two Liberal Democrat sheep, now disowned by the rest of the flock, told Tebbitt they would help him advise the Government to avoid going like lambs to the slaughter.
