Brown - a fairer, caring society

Gordon Brown will announce sweeping changes to the criminal sentencing system next week in order to ease the overcrowding in Britain's prisons.

A leaked draft policy document shows that in future criminals will only be given a maximum sentence of five years, irrespective of the type of crime, with a 50% discount for saying sorry.

Financial crimes will no longer be brought to court. Instead the offender will be given a Queen's Award to Industry.

Members of Parliament will be exempt from prosecution in order that they may 'fully concentrate on introducing policies for a fairer, caring society'.

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