Mind numbing brilliance

by Jake Quinn

All we need now is for the Insert Name of Fringe Left Wing Think Tank Here to release the findings of its shadow task force that recommends raising income tax rates to 70% (with a corporate rate of ‘death by execution’), introduce drastic increases to twilight golf and te reo sing-along courses, compulsory moroccon cooking night-classes for all under 75s, and to release all repeat violent sex-offenders in order to fill the predicted increase in demand for babysitters that would be associated with all this extra night-class attendance.  Then politicians of the centre-left can come out swinging, saying that such ideas are utter madness and that perhaps we should just trust them to take care of far more modest changes to the tax system.
