LONDON – England – George Osborne and David Cameron were sobbing into their tax receipts tonight as Moody’s took away Britain’s AAA rating.
“Maybe we should tax people more to stimulate the economy further,” George Osborne quipped.
David Cameron added: “Well, taxing people to death has really worked so far so we should carry on doing that. Great idea George.”
Indeed, the Coalition government’s wonderful plan of increasing taxes to impossible levels and still increasing them even more, has worked a treat in bringing on a third dip in the economy.
“It’s lovely, innit? I love being in a triple dip recession because everyone gets fucked then,” an anarchist waiting in the wings commented.
Maybe mass civil unrest is the recipe that everyone needs after all. Hail the triple dip. Farewell AAA!
