£44m for govt. sex hotline

In an echo of Major's cone hotline, the government are to spend £44m to set up a bonking hotline to enable people to text the government for help if they suspect their partner of rumpy-pumpy.

The Mail reports:

Robert Whelan, deputy director of the think-tank Civitas, said: "It seems you can't get away from the government - every intimate moment of your life the state wants to be in there telling you what to do.

"Electronics are wonderful in their place but you can't expect them to tell you how to cope with your wife's adultery. That's a bit beyond the scope of text messaging."

In the Alice in Wonderland world of Zanu Labour, that £44m is about 25% of the extra amount the government have put into enhanced flood protection for the nation.
