Top Tipple

Guido is slow to this one, but it turns out someone does have a sense of humour after all.

After the furore over “Top Totty” resulting in it being banned as a guest ale in the Strangers Bar, a brewery have sent over “Kangaroo Court” as a replacement.

Here endeth the beer story.

    Great response. Well Done that brewery!!

    Pity they couldn’t have put the MP’s face on the kangaroo.

    Pilkington says:

    Funny how the beer was legal for sale all over the land… but not suitable for the legislative body of the UK.

    Stop watching The Daily Politics!

    Bongler says:

    They should have sent some wine called “sour grapes” to the busybody MP who was too busy worrying about beer labels to vote in favour of the benefits cap to control scroungers.

    I shall only ever drink beer named after a place, person, or year of first brewing. Or Black sheep.

    It’s from the Salopian Brewery http://salopianbrewery.co.uk/specials.php
    who have many other suitable ales:

    Black Ops, Red Herring to name but two.

    Local MP: Daniel Kawczynski

    They should have the one with the picture of Al Capone and Che guevara on it.

    Another option would be to send over a few barrels of ‘Miserable Cow’ .

    Some Geezer wot actually did check out their website says:

    He’Brew– the Chosen Beer!


    Let’s add Strangers to this list!

    Probably a good thing then, Eh ?

    Displaced Brummie. says:

    So you’ll not be drinking a pint of Dog’s Bollocks, then?

    The Golem says:

    I recall visiting the Black Sheep Brewery back in the mid-naughties. Well-worth going out of your way if you’re “up-north”.

    genghiz the kahn says:

    Or Brecon Brewery’s Red Dragon.

    Campbell goes BUPA says:

    These are modest changes and if they succeed in upsetting vested interests like the highest paid cadre of doctors and nurses in the world… good.

    FFS get some Spesh on draught.

    lets heat it for a pint of the court of public opinion … unless its something that labour dont want to think about … like immigration or bringing back capital punishment or PFI or the iraq war or blair or brown.

    Fuck Off and Die Campbell.

    I will haunt you to the grave you evil son of a bitch.

    This looks like good game. Politicians as real ale.

    I’ll start with Coach House’s “Ginger Nut” for Danny Alexander.

    Old Peculiar for Dennis Skinner

    Naice one.

    Dennis Skinner is one of a seriosly endangered species. He is truly a Right Honourable Member. He has a very high attendance record. He doesn’t abuse the expenses system. He is good at deflating devious ex SPAD Oxford PPE graduates who have crawled up the greasy pole to Government.
    He is proper Labour, unlike Millipuppet & Co.
    I don’t agree with many of his left wing views, but the House of Commons would be better if it had a lot more conscientious guys like him.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
