How the goverment works

It's a slow day in a little Scottish town.

The sun is beating down,and the streets are deserted. Times are tough,
everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit.

On this particular day a rich tourist from down south is driving through

He stops at the motel and lays a £50 note on the desk saying he wants to
inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one to spend the night.

As soon as the man walks upstairs, the owner grabs the note and runs next
door to pay his debt to the butcher.

The butcher takes the £50 and runs down the street to repay his debt to the
pig farmer.

The pig farmer takes the £50 and heads off to pay his bill at the supplier
of feed and fuel.

The guy at the Farmer's Co-op takes the £50 and runs to pay his debt to the
local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer
her "services" on credit.

The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel

The hotel proprietor then places the £50 back on the counter so the rich
traveller will not suspect anything.

At that moment the traveller comes down the stairs, picks up the £50 note,
states that the rooms are not satisfactory, pockets the money, and leaves

No one produced anything. No one earned anything.

However, the whole town is now out of debt and now looks to the future with
a lot more optimism.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the British Government is conducting
business today..
Makes you think doesnt it?

But the prostitute jst paid the hotel owner the £50 she owed him and he gave it to the rich guy - so now the hotel guy is £50 (he should have been £50 richer, having been repaid the postitutes debt)

Or is that the point you are trying to make? :?:thinking::-D
nobody is any richer, debts all paid but everyone is still exactly the same situation!
