Mud Island or the UK

Mud Island - otherwise known as the UK is to close next week.

The Government has decided that this is the only way to actually stop spending money.

Chancellor George Objectionable Osborne commented "whatever measures we take are not working. We make huge spending cuts and spending goes up. We drop interest rates and nobody spends any more money - except us that is. We bail out the Banks and now they don't have any money left to lend except to pay out bonuses on jobs they should have lost. We don't know what do do anymore so like any other business we have decided to close - even the weather has been against us!"

The Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls-Up said that they were delighted with the news as it showed that Labour policy had been working all along and that this was proof to the British people that Labour stood up for the working people and that all working people could now enjoy a permanent holiday.
