Merry Christmas: You're Fired.

The Department of Social Scrutiny has announced new measures to combat depression delivered by the overwhelming power and irresistible brute force of official forms. The new scheme - which seeks to deliver common official communications, but with a lighter touch, has already been piloted in a number of run-down godforsaken areas of the UK such as "The North" and has been declared "a success" in a peer-reviewed academic study by a cash-starved former polytechnic, miraculously saved from closure at the eleventh hour.

New forms - such as the Xm45 (below), the Christmas version of the P-45 - are now set to gather and collate official information in a non-alarming, non-confrontational manner, while spreading seasonal greetings to ameliorate the effects of losing one's job at this special time of year.

Merry Christmas
