Nick C Legg - My Fake Diary
Thursday, 30 August 2012
I don't think I can assume that the Daily Mail is one of my biggest supporters:
Nasa is currently enthralling the world by beaming back pictures from Mars taken by its rover Curiosity. It's a pity they didn't send their robot to visit Planet Clegg.
And, like Mars, Planet Clegg is a pretty strange place.
The so-called Deputy Prime Minister has today come out with another bucket of moonshine. Only a few months after signing off a cut in top rate income tax, he now wants to dream up a new wealth tax, intended to get the rich to cough up a few more billions towards wiping out our mountainous debts.
Mr Clegg does not seem to be paying attention. If he did, he would notice that according to a report from the respected think-tank the Centre for Policy Studies, our chances of wiping out the deficit (the annual gap between income and expenditure) let alone shrinking the accumulated national debt mountain are about as likely as Curiosity stumbling across the Essex lion.
