Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, delivered his budget speech to the British parliament today. Basically, it was to point out that the British economy is still fucked and getting more fucked by the day. Obviously, this will require more belt tightening as he said “hard decisions” have to be made. In other words, as Shakespeare put it… “It’s the rich what gets the gravy, it’s the poor what gets the blame.” Or was it Oscar Wilde? Anyway, some long dead Brit said it. OK, I know Oscar was Irish, but he could always be relied on for a pithy phrase. Anyway, it’s not all bad news. Osborne cancelled alcohol tax increases and “slashed” the price of a pint by one fucking penny. That’ll do it… Keep the plebs pissed. As soon as I collect my dole, it's time for a Boddingtons!
That means if I drink 200 pints, the next one is free!
