(not satire – it’s the coalition government!)

As a satirist I am outraged!
On behalf of UK satirists and political sketch writers everywhere, I demand an immediate end to the coalition’s uncompromising drive to caricature itself relentlessly.

Or that disability is not caused by being disabled?
Oops – I nearly forgot. Duncan-Smith has already got ATOS proclaiming that one.
