The new Minister for Society

Following on from promises made at the time of the election, Prime Minister David Cameron, along with a number of fellow expense-claimers, launched his new "Big Society" initiative.

Aimed at members of the public who previously held responsible jobs in government-associated agencies and quangos prior to being made redundant following their closure, "Big Society" aims to directly help the million or so newly unemployed people.

In the same way as the "Big Issue" helps the homeless, the new magazine "Big Society" will be aimed exclusively at the former civil servants and expenses high-rollers who make up the new big society of the "nouveau unemployed".

Speaking at the launch of the magazine, the editor, a man with earrings and a pony tail who really was old enough to know better, said that he hoped the magazine would give the three "H's" - Hope, Help and Hairdressing advice - to people forced out into the real world for the first time in their 'working' lives as a result of government cuts.

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