Proof there are no businessmen in Government

And there you have it my friends

In black & white

“The Treasury” expects to save £8 million …

… at a cost to industry & other departments of £80 million!

then has the cheek to say this will save the taxpayer money

Sorry to use profanity but thats just …

Unbe-fu***ng-lievable

Oh, and dont think it would make any difference which party was in power, as this country is run by people other than the puppets you see on screen

 

Your comment? ….

How much is enough?

An American businessman was at the pier of a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked with his catch of several large yellow fin tuna. The America complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them. The Mexican replied only a little while.

The American then asked why didn’t he stay out longer and catch more fish? The Mexican said he had enough to support his family’s immediate needs. The American then asked, but what do you do with the rest of your time? The Mexican fisherman said, “I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take siesta with my wife Maria, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my amigos, I have a full and busy life, senor.”

The American sniggered. “I am a Harvard MBA and could help you. You should spend more time fishing and with the proceeds buy a bigger boat. With the proceeds from the bigger catch you could buy several boats, eventually you would have a fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your catch to a middleman you would sell directly to the processor, eventually opening your own cannery. You would control the product, processing and distribution. You would need to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to Mexico City, then LA and eventually NYC where you will run your expanding enterprise.”

The Mexican fisherman pondered this, then asked “Senor, how long will this all take?” To which the American replied “Well, maybe 15-20 years.”

“But what then, senor?” The American laughed and said that’s the best part. He explained that when the time is right you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and become very rich, you would make millions.

“Millions, senor? Then what?” Said the wide eyed Mexican

The American said, “Well, then you would retire to a life of ease my friend. Maybe move to a small coastal fishing village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take siesta with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings where you could sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos.”
