Harry Potter had one and so did everybody else at Hogwarts. Earlier today Ed Miliband and The Labour Party promised me one.
“George Osborne can only offer you more austerity, David Cameron has failed to get us a better deal in the EU, but Labour will give everybody an owl, the press release said.
Ed was onto something, Briton’s used to dream of owning a home of their own but now we have discovered the disadvantages of mortgage slavery we understand that it is far more important to the pursuit of happiness to have an owl of our own.
Unfortunately, having raised so many hopes it looks as if Labour will let us down again. Beore making such a rash promise they should have looked into the practicalities of sourcing sixty million owls.
