      Two illegal immigrants make off with their ill-begotten hand-outs from the British taxpayer, whilst a third makes sure his freezing hands sob story is a good one, even though they don’t look as if they need any help, and shouldn’t be here anyway.

      Meanwhile the lack of police officers in Downing Street shows that we really are all in this together, with Downing Street receiving the same non-existent service as ordinary Londoners!

          We three kings in Downing Street are,
          Weirdo gits encountered so far:
          Cam and Osborne, Clegg (the forlorn),
          Straight off the Euro star.

          Chorus:

          Sark and Merkle want a fight!
          Cam pissed them off – for once did right,
          UK leaving? EU disbelieving,
          Our future might be looking bright.

            Well done the Political elite for a great sham that has been sucked up by the Brain washed masses. Shame you ran out of money to support it, and now the real shit is going to hit the fan

            Everything is the fault of the Euro.

            Everything will be solved by bombing Iran.

            Then Syria. Then Pakistan. Then China. Then Moscow.

            And my favourite of all, Berlin, just because we can.

            Gillian Tett saying (from memory) “how could anyone look at the Euro and ever think that it could work” had me snorting my horlicks down my shirt.

            This was the very same lithpy drip who cheered the Euro to the rafters for a decade until it popped, who did the same for equities until they popped, who had to have the credit markets explained to her in mid 2007 just so she’d stop writing utter drivel, and who now is cheering on the printing press.

            Of course the BBC just love her. She is being elevated to the status of that other plebian’s guru, St Vince. The idea that this dozy bint understands global fixed income and should therefore be listened to is alarming.

    Now really is the time to understand, believe and confirm that we really never had any influence in Europe any way. They wanted our money of course, when the city was awash with funds, but now there are difficulties there, they lay their faults at the door of the City of London.

    How all the politicians and prime ministers of this nation over these last 60 years,have squandered our finances, world influences and productivity to the Euro dream and well and truly fucked the man in the street; but you know, they really couldn’t careless, you only have to look at the LibDems now, to confirm this, they do after all know best!
