Cameron Appointed Bankrupt To Run Public Finances.
David Cameron has come under increasing criticism today for reappointing a bankrupt as the head of the Public Works Loan Board charged with overseeing a budget of £60 billion in public funds. Although Tony Caplin was originally appointed by the previous Labour government he was confirmed in the job during 2012 within weeks of filing for bankruptcy. We asked a government spokesman how this could have happened; "Well, he is one of us isn't he? Obviously a man as important as Tony Caplin needs several hundred thousand pounds a year to live in the manner to which he's become accustomed. I should think that, being bankrupt, he probably needed the job, which might explain why he "mistakenly" forgot to tell us about it. But, let's face it, anyone can make a mistake - look at Maria Miller for instance, not to mention all the other MP's and public servants who are far too busy to make sure they're also honest." We asked if anyone in the government asked Mr.Caplin about his finances before confirming him in his position; "Certainly not! One does not ask a gentleman about his finances. Where did you grow up? On a council estate? I've never heard the like. What you people fail to appreciate is that important people like Mr.Caplin live by a different set of standards to the peasants, hoi polloi and plebeians. My God you'll be telling me next that we should pay taxes!"
