What planet do these politicians live on?

So Mr Noonan wants us to spend our way out the recession? Really, what planet do these people live on?

If you are lucky enough to have any cash, you need to consider that it is going to be taken from us in some form of 'time bomb charges' that are due to go off over the next year: water charges; property tax; septic tank inspection fees and private pension raids -- the list goes on. No, Mr Noonan we need to keep our cash.
