The government is to introduce an internet voucher rewards system for the UK's hardworking people.
Grant Shapps, the Conservative Party chairman, announced the scheme at a tech show yesterday.
The former housing minister said: "Britain's hardworking classes deserve a boost. Our voucher system will ensue they get the things they need."
Created by Californian firm Michael Green Technologies Ltd, the site - www.thethingsyoulike.gov.uk - will go live in early May and promises to deliver a bumper selection of common goods at "everyman discounts".
Though a comprehensive list of the goods that will be made available is yet to be finalised, Tory HQ has confirmed the following offers:
25% off fish. To include all the main fish that they enjoy. Cod, eel, sardine etc
15% off pub snacks. Redeemable at up to 75,000 UK pubs, the deal covers salty items such as nuts, crisps, pork scratches and other ‘nibbles’ enjoyed by hard-workers.
2 for 1 cider bonanza. A staple for hearty hard-workers everywhere, commonly used by them to relax after a hard day's hard work.
Pennies for dogs. A few free pennies to play with at the whippet track to get them started.
Grant Shapps said: "It's not all about hard work. It's important that they, our hard-workers, feel sedate and calm.
"We have big plans to offer money off deals on holidays for the places they like to go, such as Ibiza and Blackpool."
A Tory IT spokesman confirmed that the deals will be accessible via special codes to be dished out from over 200,000 proletarian service outlets across the country.
As well as being linked to purchases, the voucher codes will also be allotted for cases of “exceptional hard-work”.
