WARNING Don’t attempt to read this book all at once – it might just kill you either when your blood pressure explodes or you die laughing – except the joke is on us. It is our pockets which are picked as ludicrous amounts of OUR MONEY are thrown down the drain.
The government says it needs to cut welfare by £12 billion. Balderdash! All the government needs to do is stop wasting money – £120 BILLION wasted in the years 2011-2012.
