Superannuation Under Surveillance

Superannuation Under Surveillance

Not since Leacock's Boardinghouse Geometry has there been so striking an example of applied mathematics as was evidenced in the recent Court proceedings in the case The Pres v. National Superannuation. The Defendant had been under surveillance for some time, and on coming out into the open was duly taken Into custody and charged (on information laid by Sundry Editors) with having insufficient lawful means of support.

The police stated that at the time of the arrest the Defendant was lurking about Parliament Buildings. In his possession was found an unexpurgated copy of Professor Murphy's treatise on The Canons of Taxation. After being cautioned by the Associated Chambers of Commerce the Defendant said he had no further statement to make.
