Coalition ministers today stood behind their recent proposal for a 90 hour, unpaid working week to be introduced for everyone across the country who didn't vote for them.
Speaking from beside the pool of his 26 bedroom villa in Marbella, Reginald Numpty, Minister for inequalities said:
"Due to the debt left behind by the last government, we find this a perfectly reasonable way of reducing the deficit, encouraging people back into work and testing that the new NHS reforms are fit for purpose once the numbers of people collapsing at their workstations increases, as we expect it to. In these difficult economic times, we are the only people who are allowed to expect something for nothing. Because we said so"
When asked whether he expected any legal challenges to the new proposal, Numpty, 74, and third in line to the duchy of Lesser Spottingbottom choked on his drink and had to be helped from the room.
