This I love! I remember playing around with this last year too. Yes, it's the eponymous, ubiquitous BBC NEWS's Be the Chancellor of the Exchequer 'service', where you can carry out your long- and deeply-held economic policies and view the results. Don't like tax? Abolish it! Don't like cigarettes? Triple the tax on them! See where that lands you. Well, technically speaking, it would land you in one heck of an economic mess, but I want you to find it out for yourself. I managed to abolish unemployment, but not without getting 16% inflation and a 7% budget deficit. Oops. There goes my political career.
