The LDP's cunning plan to solve the economic mess we are in:
- Give everyone a ¥12,000 payment (about a hundred quid) - amounting to ¥2 trillion which they can spend on, er, a week's worth of groceries and a case of shochu.
- Spend another ¥6 trillion on unneeded bridges and such (about three hundred quid per person)
- Pass the bill on to the next government (or generation).
- Wait for Obama to solve everything.
- Then flog more stuff to the Yanks.
