I love this bit:

Going to school, however, is thought to be not harmful at all. The report gives five as the precise age at which a child suddenly becomes able to leave its mother, although in areas where reception intake is at four, the number '5' is crossed out and '4' written in instead.

Defo a joke. Good though!

It wasn't until I read this bit that I realised it was a p*ss-take...

"most women do not need to work outside the home, and only do it to 'buy trivial luxuries, such as salad.' Nurseries and nannies, it says, are extremely damaging to children, causing them to fail their exams and become shoplifters in later life"

I had to giggle thinking of all the SAHM's (of which I am one myself atm) reading the title of this thread and being incensed!

LOL - Door tax - How would they know if we left the house? Would they employ a door watcher?? And would it only be out of the front door or would the back door count too?
Also do you reckon they offer a bonus for not leaving or staying in the kitchen all day?

Yes, it's satire. Very Onion-esque.

And very funny!

'Most women do not need to work outside the home, and only do it to 'buy trivial luxuries, such as salad.' SALAD???? Salad is the one of the last things I'd be thinking about buying... and I certainly don't consider it a luxury. What planet is this person on?? Very strange.

note to self.....stop buying salad........
