A little masterpiece with  a bit of a Pete and Dud feel about it.  
 
All the same can't help feeling that paternalistic attitudes to "The poor" and assertions of property as theft were the stuff of satire 40 years back. 
 
Might just go right by young folks today.

Subject: Re: urgent CPUK press release 
 
Ah now surely this is a clever ploy to facilitate interaction amongst the 3 parallel workshops on the Thursday afternoon - media & press management; our online community; and developing our collective voice....it throws into relief all of these issues and how they intersect - who are 'we' as a community?  How does/can an online community function and make decisions?  To whom are we accountable?  And what relationship do we want to have with the media?  If this is what the mail was about Paul I think it's very clever and will follow with interest the debates that follow.....

Yes, quite. I think this was a test to see who has a sense of humour or who takes themselves too seriously...

> issue as a statement to the press tomorrow: 
> "We, as a network of community psychologists, support the criticism  
> made by the leader of the Conservative Party, David Cameron, of the  
> Chancellor of the Exchequer's suspension of the Stamp Duty for  
> properties under £150,000. We believe the poor should not be  
> encouraged to buy properties at a time of such economic uncertainty  
> and should instead be encouraged to rent property from housing  
> associations. Further, we believe all property is theft and that the  
> Chancellor's decision to stimulate the property market makes him an  
> accessory to a social crime and makes estate agents entrepreneurial  
> pimps (though we in no way condone the recent job cuts in the sector).  
> As a network of community psychologists, community activists and users  
> of psychological services we encourage the government to make greater  
> use of public-private enterprise initiatives in the housing sector to  
> ensure the poor have increased opportunities for housing as such  
> opportunities will provide the poor with pathways to full citizenship
