Way Out Of the UK's economic crisis-just food for thought
FOOD FOR THOUGHT…Tongue-in-cheek lol
Got this from friends and well erm just had to share it's point :P
Dear Mr. Darling,
Please find below my suggestion for fixing Britain's economy.
Instead of giving billions of pounds to banks that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.
You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:
There are about 20 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay them £1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:
They MUST retire. Twenty million job openings - Unemployment fixed
They MUST buy a new British car. Twenty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed
They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed
They MUST send their kids to school/college/university - Crime rate fixed
They MUST buy £50 of alcohol/tobacco a week …..and there's your money back in duty/tax etc
It can't get any easier than that!
P.S. If more money is needed, have all Members of Parliament pay back their falsely claimed expenses and second home allowances

:congrats: :urock: Me thinks this would work world wide actually!!!!! Too simple a solution to suit the politicians !!! :funny2:
:alarm: Maybe all politicians need this wake up call :whistle: but honestly thanx guys :) for your comments and as you say too simple …. ::).
However sometimes the simplest of solutions are those staring us in our faces :o and erm sometimes politicians can be looking too hard for a solution ???, when all the time its there right in front of us ;)
leatherbear 8) for a sec seeing your smiley thought I was to become the first one to get the £1m severance for early retirement :-[ now I gotta carry on :'(
mgr awesome thought why yes wonder if you could translate it into German-maybe another eye opening but be careful as other members may want it translated into many languages too :-X
