Flare-ups in the budget review.

"Look, we've gone and blown all the cash and with a credit rating worse than Madoff, no-one's gonna lend to UK p.l.c. It's time to face facts. We can't stage this white elephant properly. What we need now are excuses. Big sound-bite excuses. The wackier the better. Ok? Let's brainstorm. Bad weather? Nope, Beijing did that. We could flood London? Like your thinking, but that would cost too much to clear up. Solar Firestorm - Bingo! Give that girl a gold star. Right get me some boffins, organise a press conference and most importantly, where are we going for lunch?" - excerpt from 2012 Budget Review Meeting.
