I tried, but I couldn't.



I tried to come up with a more ridiculous idea than this. I tried really hard. I've been pacing up and down the living room all evening trying to come up with something even more boneheaded than this suggestion, I've worn a hole in the carpet, I've failed.

I'll just let this, I struggle to think of a term which doesn't go from dim, through absurd, racing through insane before stopping at inspired as it completes the cycle breaking through the divide at the back. I'll just have to use inspired.

I'll just let this inspired idea speak for itself.

[Bob Crow] The General Secretary of the militant Rail, Maritime and Transport union was booed as he outlined his idea for a 1p tax on each email during an appearance on a late night comedy show. 





















Errrrrm.


















No. I'm speechless.

Well it was a late night comedy show. Maybe he was just getting into the spirit of the show!

Or maybe not...

How about a tax on bright ideas? That would be consistent with Bob's philosophy without affecting anyone prepared to vote for him.

Interesting to see how the RMT contributes to both the Labour Party's coffers and its grasp of common sense.

Amusing update: I just clicked onto the RMT website to see if there was any mention of funding sources and was presented with the following gem,

"...If you haven’t registered, please click on the 'New Users' link. You will need your membership number and national insurance number to register.

IF YOU HAVE ZEROS IN YOUR MEMBERSHIP NUMBER, PLEASE ENSURE YOU ENTER THE NUMBER AND NOT THE LETTER 'O'. "

It almost suggests they were expecting their members to be really stupid.
