Limited time for blogging. Stumbled across this whilst searching for something in a folder of miscellaneous documents accumulated over many years - as you do. Gave me a good chuckle so, with due credit to its unknown author, and because it encapsulates the plague of 'Big (incometent) Government' from which we all suffer so much, here it is:
A major research institution recently announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element has been named "Governmentium."

Governmentium (Gv) has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces called 'morons' which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called 'peons.' Since Gv has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A minute amount of Gv causes one reaction to take over four days to complete, when it would normally take less than a second!

Gv has a normal half-life of 4 years; it does not decay; but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming 'isodopes.' This characteristic of moron promotion leads most scientists to believe that Gv is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as 'Critical Morass.'

When catalyzed with money, Gv becomes "Administratium' (Am) - an element which radiates just as much energy as Gv, since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.

    Found your blog after reading your comments on Iain Dale's Blog.

    Re your last comment - glad to see some one else feels the same way. The treatment of Patrick Mercer is shocking and makes me despair.

    Apart from that - cut down all this English flag waving nonsense - you lot cannot play rugby to save yourselves.
