North of England flooded with Southerners’ taxes

The north of England is facing severe flooding over the Christmas period as too many shipments of cash from southern taxpayers arrived at the same time. An official at the Northern Development Executive blamed ‘bad planning’ as the usual truckloads of benefit money arrived at the same time as the Northern Powerhouse grant and some high speed rail link.

Parts of the north are now impassable because of the torrent of cash flooding the streets. Worst of all, there are fears the problem will trigger further compensation payments from Westminster, leaving the north in a vicious spiral until the whole country north of Watford is entirely submerged in fifty pound notes, at which point the new high speed rail link will stop working anyway.
