iPhone 4? That'll be £15,000 please"
We're living in scary times. In this week's budget George Osborne explained just how bad things have become.
The public coffers are empty, and that means we need to make sacrifices. The school leaving age will be reduced to six. Hospitals will no longer treat you unless you're spurting blood or other fluids. Benefits will be slashed, the unemployed will be forced to eat one another and Wales will be sold to the highest bidder.
So does Britain look like an outtake from The Road, with people chewing on babies and mugging one another for half-chewed Mars bars? Nope. We're all queuing outside Apple stores, and Vodafone stores, and Orange stores, and Carphone Warehouses.
At a time when the UK's so broke we might have to start being nice to the French in the hope they'll toss us the odd baguette, it seems that many of us can not just afford to spend thousands of quid on a phone that can't make phone calls, but that many of us are willing to queue for hours to hand over our cash as quickly as we possibly can.
Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
I think you are.
