With measures such as the cancellation of housing benefit for under-21s, and the abolition of tax credits for more than two children, at last this Budget is taking money back from the groupwho caused the financial crash, people who were children when it happened.

The removal of tax credits applies to babies born from 2018, so that’s even more carefully targeted, at greedy bastards who aren’t yet alive. For too long these non-existent beings have been sponging off the rest of us, but enough is enough.
The reason for this is that astrologers have informed the Department of Work and Pensions that babies born from 2018 onwards will have Venus descending through their Taurus, making them claim disability benefit forever and eat trifle all day, paid for by hard-working Sagittarians, and that simply can’t be allowed to continue.
