With debts rising and the interest payments alone looking at potentially crippling the British economies recovery, a drastic solution has been suggested by the Chancellor.
Britain is to go ahead and extend the year by a week in order to make inroads into it's debt mountain.
George Osborne announced the measures today and outlined the impacts and expected benefits in full.
"April, June, September and November are to be extended by 1 day each so are now 31 days long, whilst we intend to make February 31 days also, giving us the extra 7 days we need. This means that every month now has 31 days in total (Putting his FX-82B to the side)"
Benefits of this extension is that there will be 7 more days of tax, interest and payments being receipted into the treasury and that things such as benefits and pensions, that are not increasing in line with the extra days, will also cost the Government proportionately less.
"Just like when we opted out of joining the Euro, all those years ago, the creation of a new UKalendar is a momentus decision in the shaping of this nations future. We will no longer be tied into months of inequal lengths or having to add a day every 4 years, instead we will have a beautifully symmetrical year which is the same month in month out, just the sort of stability this great nation needs!" Declared the PM.
Sceptics have been keen to point out just a number of issues, such as the amount of money required to add 7 days to the 2011 calendars and diaries that are being printed as we speak. Also, quite how we will align with the rest of the world on dates etc, as well as the whole births, deaths and marriages scenario.
