Public not ready for 2010 Switchover claims new Report

A newly published report reveled that the majority of the public have not even begun to prepare for the switchover to 2010, which is scheduled for midnight on 31st December.

The opposition immediately blamed the government, with a Conservative spokesman noting that consensus still has not been reached on whether the upcoming year will be called ‘two thousand and ten’ or the snappier ‘twenty ten’ in line with plans for the 2012 Olympics. Meanwhile Help the Aged said the change was being implemented too quickly, with many pensioners expected to be writing cheques dated 2009 well into April.

Number 10 have refused comment, but rumours circulating Westminster suggest Gordon Brown is considering emergency legislation to phase in the change more gradually with a plan that would mean May 2010 is not scheduled to arrive until August 2014.
