Windmills - or is it Bushmills? - of Your Mind

London - Ex-UK Prime Monster John Major has proposed an emergency tax on top British energy firms' profits in a move dubbed the Tory Windmill Tax.

"Shome mishtake," a No 10 Downing Street aide commented insisting Sir John had got the government's Landfill Tax mixed up with a Windfall Tax.

The Windmill Tax of course is part of the UK Green Levy where anyone with a couple of large coat hangers and a metal pole can set up their very own wind-generated back yard power source by citing Habeas Corpus under the 1504 Windmills Act.

There is also provision for whopping great big government grants for the whole damn thing's erection plus huge discounts on any Bedroom Tax payable while pumping surplus power back into the National Grid.

A spokesperson for Sir John Major said today the old duffer's been sloshed since Maggie Thatcher's funeral so take no notice, he's just an arse.

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