It was reported on Thursday that Nouriel Roubini, professor of economics at New York University, said in advance of the G20 annual Davos meeting “There is complete disagreement and disarray. There is no agreement on anything. We are in a world where there is no leadership.” In other words, G20 has become G Zero. In recognition of his honesty we make the following offering:
It is said nobody knows where we are
Or how far
We have to go
Before the effects of the snow
Are a thing of the past.
To who should we turn
If nobody knows what to do?
Dodgy Dossier has just received a report that the government will
come under fire over its plans to end inheritance.
Peers threaten revolt on plans to scrap council house inheritance
“We could be next,” claims spokesman.
Our Dodgy Dossier consists of items written tongue-in-cheek. The aim is to entertain and employ irony to expose some of the current nonsense that is dominating public debate. Our website is meant to be a serious resource for those campaigning for the economic reforms that we advocate, but we make no apology for introducing material which makes the same points in a lighter vein. Relax and enjoy it.
“I intend to continue taxing wages, good and services.”
Ahead of the spending review to be announced in Parliament on Wednesday, the Chancellor, George Osborne, stated last night that he was prepared to do anything to solve the unprecedented financial crisis – except consider the one reform that would help regenerate the economy and lead to a long term solution.
Reports are coming in of a heated exchange at the Conservatory Party conference between the Chancellor of the Exchequer and representatives from The Landed Gentry Association.
A spokesman told us, “Earlier in the week the Chancellor made a statement that he intended to put ‘a limit on benefits received’. Naturally we sought urgent clarification that this policy would not affect the members of our Association and our affiliate, The Land Speculators Guild. We wanted to make sure the unearned benefits we received in land value would be ring fenced and not be included in the proposed cuts.”
“The crisis facing our country needs a new approach,” says spokesman.
A new political party with the slogan ‘No taxation without repression’ has been formed by rebel MPs
taking a lead from Sarah Palin’s runaway success in America . Although too late to have a conference
this year, the new party plan to issue a Press Release stating their objectives. We have been fortunate
in obtaining an advance copy ahead of general release next week.
