Lawyers are facing a life on skid row as the credit crunch bites deep. With 83% of the adult population already behind bars after the highly successful ''Tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime'' campaign,there just aren't enough people left to prosecute.

Law society spokesperson, Jerez Blear QC, claims some hard up silks are having to live on just 800k pa. ''The working class have abandoned crime for the Costa Brava'' claimed Jerez, aged 84.

''As we all know and appreciate,being a lying, immoral,and rich lawyer is the best foundation to a life in politics'' said government spokesperson Ivor Wedge QC, 22, '' we can't pay these honest, hard working men and women enough, to prepare them for the expense claims in their futures''

The new laws expected to be passed after the 18 week summer break
