The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond, and other members of the cabinet, are at loss as to how it’s possible for the budget deficit to have widened by a massive 14.5% in only one year?

A government spokesperson said: “We are looking into the reasons why this dramatic turn in the countries finances has taken place; but it clearly has something to do with us getting less money from somewhere for some reason.”

The institute for fiscal cleverness, an independent think-tank, thought it might have something to do with us giving Europe the ‘bird’ and the rest of the planet recognising what a monumental fuck-up that is, therefore, selling down our currency by 20%.

They went on to say; “So, if you’re a company that imports anything, or moves anything, or needs energy for anything then your income will be down and you’ll pay less tax!”
