image for Coalition government 'endeavours' to change lots of things
Endeavouring not to look smug

Many are now saying our government are 'big on promises but short on delivery.'

'We are considering a cap on immigration, We plan to ban vehicle clamping,' and 'We don't intend to raise VAT,' have all been heard in the last 12 months but what went wrong? Well as they say the devil is in the detail and politicians love our somewhat apathetic approach to their rhetoric.

The problem is the government's language is spreading into everyday life. I recently told my wife I planned to start doing more ironing, more house work and more exercise, however my plans have not yet been implemented. She said she would endeavour to dress up in a nurse's uniform with bright red lipstick and stockings, but as yet I am still waiting.

Even my daughter has promised to start cleaning her bedroom but as yet there has been no improvement on that front.

Only the other day Mr Cameron in a response to rising fuel costs said: 'We are looking at introducing a fuel stabiliser mechanism,' and yes you guessed it he sniggered all the way back to his limo muttering: 'Just looking though.'

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