Swine Flu – The Upside

Swine Flu

Swine Flu

They say every cloud has a silver lining and for a Government that manages to colour silver grey, this could be a wonderful opportunity.

If  there is a major outbreak of Swine Flu the Government will no doubt offer vaccines to those less able to fight off the symptoms ie the very young or the very old (and probably Members of Parliament – this won’t of course be illegal and a committee will be set up to investigate if it undermines public confidence).

This will leave the bulk of the population unprotected but fear not.

On the upside, unemployment figures will plummet and there will be more jobs available. Less people will be on benefit and the housing shortage will end, pushing up house prices and kick-starting the economy. And of course shares in pharmaceutical companies will rocket which will push up the FTSE.

And when that happens we will all be grateful to the swine (no, not that one but he will take credit anyway).
