Pencil Tax

From the first of March 2013 the British Government will be instituting a new Pencil Tax as part of the new Green Deal scheme. The Tax will be implemented alongside other energy saving measures in a bid to maintain a healthy Ecosystem.
A spokesman for the initiative states
” we hope to prevent the destruction of our planets’s resources and any suggestion that we wish to control writers is seriously overblown. I think you will find our present predicament is the fault of previous administrations.”
