Workshy public-sector jobsworths, union oiks and lazy unemployed people today showed the strength of their commitment to the anti-cuts agenda by place enough money to cover the deficit into a large collection bucket at the start of their march.
The generous contributions will mean that the government can continue squandering money money on 'initiatives', vanity projects, spanking new buildings and miscellaneous public-sector tat for at least another year.
Jobless waster Michael Ruskin said: 'I've put my money where my mouth is, or rather your money. I've saved up every penny I've been given for the last year, so that I can give it all back, and then the government can give it all back to me.'
Additional fundraising is to be carried out over the next few days, which organisers hope will raise enough money to bring the aircraft carriers back into service. Jane Isleman of unison said; 'Despite all our lefty grizzling about warmongering and general pacifist toss, it suddenly transpires that actually it was a really, really stupid idea getting rid of our aircraft carriers just before we had to go and kick another freakshow dictator's backside in some God-forsaken desert wasteland.'
