There are 19 million in school. That leaves 11 million to do the work.
Two million are unemployed and four million are employed by the Government.
That leaves five million to do the work.
One million are in the Armed Forces leaving four million to do the work.
Three million are employed by councils leaving one million to do the work.
There are 620,000 in hospital and 379,998 in jail.
That leaves two people to do the work. You and me.
You are sitting on your backside reading this;
no wonder I'm tired._
