The target for Comic Relief this year is £40million. A conservative estimation of the UK working population is 28 million. The cost of a new nuclear submarine is about £50 million.
So; we could fore go some useless life-threatening hardware or everyone in work could pay an annual levy of £1.50.
Either way we would save ourselves an evening of crap TV as celebrities attempt to revive their failing careers, or a day of attention seeking office jokers making tits of themselves.
I've just dodged a guy in the street dressed as a giant ladybird using his comedy-antennae to block innocent passers and saying 'you can't get passed me without giving to comic relief'. Now there's a challenge.
