The effect of cuts on the British people

Today protesters from across the UK are gathering together to protest against the government cuts in public services, which they claim will "devastate communities and destroy societies".

A group of protesters spoke exclusively to

One said, "Every week I hang around the dole office to get my giro. There's a whole group of us who do that, we're getting to know each other. Sometimes we'll go to the pub afterwards to spent our hard-earned handouts. There's a real sense of community there which I think will be ruined if the government start cutting our dole money."

Another protester said, "I'm retired and I have no friends. So I like to sit in the library all day reading books, looking creepy and trying to get a peek up the librarian's skirt. If they close the library, I don't know what I'll do. What if I need to look something up in an encyclopedia - where else can you do that but at the library?"

Another said, "Well I don't really use any public services myself, there's nothing useful they provide. But I think it must be terrible for all those poor people who do rely on them for whatever they do. Oh I do respect the hard-working poor and unemployed. I think we should throw as much money and public services as possible at them."

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