Vicky Pollard, off to the museum?Vicky Pollard, off to the museum?

We are at war. We have a gigantic national debt. We have severe winter weather and cannot even grit our roads. We have a surveillance state: a country covered in CCTV cameras and policemen who cry:"terrorist", when they see a man painting a watercolour of a factory. Our prisons are full and we shall soon have an energy crisis.

So, what is our government doing? Well Ed Balls (incidentally the man who gave the term endogenous growth theory to his pal Gordon) wants to ban family tickets for museums and galleries, because they discriminate against single mothers. At least fiddling whilst Rome burnt showed some musical talent.
