The Little Voters and Taxpayers of Iceland

 

One day as the Little Voters and Taxpayers of Iceland were scratching in a field, they found a grain of wheat.

 “This wheat should be planted,” they said. “Who will plant this grain of wheat?”

“Not I,” said the banks and pension funds.”We can trust on bailouts from the government and our assets are price indexed. We don’t need  to help out.”.

“Not I,” said the richest people in Iceland. “Our savings are price indexed and we’ve got plenty of cash stored in tax shelters around the world. We don’t have to lift a finger”.

“Not I,” said the Dog.

“Then we will,” said the The Little Voters and Taxpayers in Iceland. And they did.

 

Soon the wheat grew to be tall and yellow.

“The wheat is ripe,” said the The Little Voters and Taxpayers in Iceland. “Who will cut the wheat?”

“Not I,” said the banks and the pension funds. “We can trust on bailouts from the government and our assets are price indexed. We don’t need  to help out.”.

“Not I,” said the richest people in Iceland. “Our savings are price indexed and we’ve got plenty of cash stored in tax shelters around the world. We don’t have to lift a finger”. .

“Not I,” said the Dog.

“Then we will,” said the The Little Voters and Taxpayers in Iceland. And they did.

 

When the wheat was cut, the The Little Voters and Taxpayers in Iceland said, “Who will thresh the wheat?”

“Not I,” said the banks and pension funds. “We can trust on bailouts from the government and our assets are price indexed. We don’t need  to help out.”.

“Not I,” said the richest people in Iceland. “Our savings are price indexed and we’ve got plenty of cash stored in tax shelters around the world. We don’t have to lift a finger”. .

“Not I,” said the Dog.

“Then we will,” said the The Little Voters and Taxpayers in Iceland. And they did.

 
When the wheat was thretheyd, the The Little Voters and Taxpayers in Iceland said, “Who will take this wheat to the mill?”

“Not I,” said the banks and pension funds.”We can trust on bailouts from the government and our assets are price indexed. We don’t need  to help out.”.

“Not I,” said the richest people in Iceland. “Our savings are price indexed and we’ve got plenty of cash stored in tax shelters around the world. We don’t have to lift a finger”. .

“Not I,” said the Dog.

“Then we will,” said the The Little Voters and Taxpayers in Iceland. And they did.

They took the wheat to the mill and had it ground into flour. Then they said, “Who will make this flour into bread?”

“Not I,” said the banks and pension funds.”We can trust on bailouts from the government and our assets are price indexed. We don’t need  to help out.”.

“Not I,” said the richest people in Iceland. “Our savings are price indexed and we’ve got plenty of cash stored in tax shelters around the world. We don’t have to lift a finger”. .

“Not I,” said the Dog.

“Then we will,” said the The Little Voters and Taxpayers in Iceland. And they did.
 

They made and baked the bread. Then they said, “Who will eat this bread?”

“Oh! we will,” said the banks and pension funds. “We can trust on bailouts from the government and our assets are price indexed. We get all the bread you have and get us some coffee while you are at it.”

“And we will,” said the richest people in Iceland. “Our savings are price indexed and we’ve got plenty of cash stored in tax shelters around the world. We also went into your cupboard and took all your biscuits and most of your jam”.

“And I will,” said the Dog.

“OK, OK!” said the The Little Voters and Taxpayers in Iceland. “Enjoy the bread. We have to go and bake you a cake.” And they did.
