The government didn’t realise the figures were that bad until the morning of the cabinet meeting.
Are these people supposed to be running the country or not?
They didn’t know, until the day they met, how disastrous the tax take was. They just didn’t know.
Are they working part time? Is that it? Are they spending most of their day doing part-time jobs painting houses or cleaning toilets or maybe a bit of landscaping?
Give me a minute while I shake my head.
This is the government, isn’t it? Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong. The government. Those who govern.
What? They only found out on the morning of their meeting, at which they planned to govern us, how bad the sums were. They didn’t fucking know?
Why not? Was it a secret? Was there a bad civil servant out there saying, No! I’ll tell ya when I’m good and fuckin ready?
No. Of course there wasn’t. The reason they didn’t know is because they’re a crowd of fucking idiots.
That’s our government. Jesus, that’s what’s protecting us from oblivion.
