Bizarre Things You Are Paying For

Post image for Bizarre Things You Are Paying For – Number 279.
I can see this series getting ever longer – and I am sure you will be glad to add to it.
The last time I worked out the value of One Drone - the amount the government can expect to rake in from one minimum wage worker in one year – it was £1,816.19.
That was at 2009 values. Let us roughly adjust for 2013 to £2,000 to make the calculation easy.
Which means that 10 drones have worked full time for a year to pay for – what exactly?
Erm, the storage charges on 40,000 mobile phones.
Why is the government storing 40,000 mobile phones?
Because they can’t sell them.
Why can’t they sell them?
Because they have all been retrieved from ‘orifice searches’.
