Crematoria ‘to help supply national grid’ says PM
With energy costs at their highest yet, David Cameron promised: ‘With the first three months of the year traditionally having the highest mortality rates amongst the elderly, people can rest assured that energy supplies will not be affected’.

Under which scheme, relatives of the deceased will be encouraged to take redundant wooden canes, rocking chairs and old copies of the People’s Friend to collection points to provide extra fuel for the grid.
Mr. Cameron explained that recycling the elderly was a noble sacrifice: ‘As your light goes out you’ll be illuminating another.’Click to send this story to a friend
