image for England hit by 2 earthquakes!
Seismologist expert "Cheeky Cameron" forgot to warn the Brit public about the 2011 VAT earthquake?

As Great Britain woke up after its extra day off they were hit by 2 earthquakes.

The first was registered in Yorkshire and measured 3.6 on the Richter scale, caused hardly any harm or structural damage, but Grannies who were thrown out of their beds complained, slightly.

The second and most awful earthquake hit the UK with impunity as commuters, vehicle owners, shoppers, shop owners, virtually everybody awoke to the crunching effects of the coalition governments austerity programmes:

VAT has risen, train ticket prices, fuel prices, etc, etc. In fact the financial earthquake is so huge Brits feel like having another Bank Holiday, another Christmas shopping spree and a good old New Years eve booze-up to forget the misery which has hit them.

All the "over the top" New Years celebrations are forgotten and the hopes for a fantastic 2011 have been devastated as reality hits the over-spending Brits where they hate it the most, in their pockets.

As for the earthquakes they have now moved from Yorkshire to under the foundations of 10 Downing street, hopefully they can shake the Prime Minister into admitting he sold the British public a right load of old "shaky knee-wobblers" instead of divulging the VAT quake!

Make Jaggedone's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
