Department of Ill-divided worldliness (From The BBC)

The Scottish council tax freeze disproportionally benefits the wealthy, according to research by a union.
Unison said people in the most expensive Band H homes saved on average £441 per year while those in the cheapest homes saved £147 a year.
The union claimed increased charges for services such as rent had far outweighed the claimed savings.
A Scottish government spokeswoman said the freeze had provided "much-needed relief" to hard-pressed families and rich people.
Refusing to speak to The BBC, Professor Beaker of Dundee's Department of Public Policy For Dummies, commented to us:" When the right-wing press are strangely quiet , year after year, on a particular bit of taxation you can bet your arse its because rich people are benefiting from it."
