The budget deficit in perspective

The UK budget deficit is £13.3bn. In pennies that's 48 times smaller than Wales and 26,304 times heavier than whales.

So I guess to reduce the deficit we need to increase the size of Wales (by annexing NI perhaps) or the size of whales (by feeding them the casualties from the Wales - NI war?). It's a thorny issue.

Hideous Gideon's method is to take £7bn from the budget and give £6bn to Vodafone in tax relief. It makes just about as much sense.
