What an EXCELLENT Idea !

Spotted this on the Mossley Message Board (courtesy "Gadgie") - what do you think ?

Dear Mr. Cameron,

Please find below our suggestion for fixing the UK 's economy.

Instead of giving billions of pounds to banks that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.

You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:

There are about 10 million people over 50 in the work force.

Pay them £1 million each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire.
Ten million job openings - unemployment fixed

2) They MUST buy a new British car.
Ten million cars ordered - Car Industry fixed

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage -
Housing Crisis fixed

4) They MUST send their kids to school/college/university -
Crime rate fixed

5) They MUST buy £100 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week .....
And there's your money back in duty/tax etc

I'm up for it !!

Nice idea - as another over 50 I would like it.

I know it's only done in humour but we seem to be missing a sense of scale.

Where would David Cameron find 10 TRILLION pounds ! ? ! ?

Nobody knows how much was given to the banks but I think it was somewhere around 200 Billion so this would be 50 times that amount.
