    Dear people of the United Kingdom

    Due to the current financial situation caused by the slowdown of the economy, your Government has decided to implement a scheme to put workers 50 years of age and older on early retirement. This scheme will be known as RAPE (Retire Aged People Early).

    Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to the government to be eligible for the SHAFT scheme (Special Help After Forced Termination).

    Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (Scheme Covering Retired Early Workers). A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as the government deems appropriate.

    Only persons who have been RAPED can get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependents & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel Early Severance). Obviously, persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by the government.

    Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on, will receive as much SHIT (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. The government has always prided itself in the amount of SHIT it gives out. Should you feel that you do not receive enough SHIT, please bring this to the attention of your local MP. They have been trained to give you all the SHIT you can handle.

    David Cameron.
  2. Typical Cameron, no new ideas, I'm not sure if was McMillan or Callaghan came up with the original when we were trouble in the '60s
  3. Sounds like a MacMillan ruse.

    ... last seen during Options for Change. Sadly for the Labour Party-bashers (of whom I'm one), both times I've seen this get an outing is under a Conservative/led government.

    But then I suppose that's what comes of clearing up Labour's shit...
