This is known in the trade as a trivial solution. Carried to its
logical extreme, the supermarket delivery trucks won't get to the
supermarkets and nor the customers in their cars, and the bulk of the
U.K. population will starve to death. The investment bankers in London
will survive, fed on their regular diet of Nepalese quails eggs
delivered by helicopter, and the U.K. economy will look much healthier
- the costs of the education system, the health service and so forth
will be drastically reduced.
Dubba seems to be in the process of implementing a similar solution in
the U.S. We may expect a chorus of right-wing approval from those too
stupid to realise that they are part of the expendable majority.
