In the short term, all he needs to do is cut off our precious tax pounds from the accounts of those blood-sucking leeches grin. Bingo instant savings!

Also what about not holding the olympics here? Surely we cannot afford it?

MrsGrouchoMarxMerryHenry Tue 13-Jan-09 20:57:04

Hey, DPB, how much would we save from that, then?

But they bring in more than that in tourism.

So we cut their allowances and turn Buck House into a Big Brother house and flog the TV rights to the rest of the world and voila - lots of money to help with large hole in economy!

pocketmonster - Do all the tourists come just to mock us for hanging on to this weird anachronism? And paying so much to do so?

MrsGrouchoMarxMerryHenry Tue 13-Jan-09 21:55:54

Zen - they would if we created Big Bucker (as per Yadda)! Remember David Blaine's glass box? I rest my case!

zenandtheartofbaking Tue 13-Jan-09 22:03:55

Ah - I like that. And then they'd be laughing with us, not at us.

MrsGrouchoMarxMerryHenry Tue 13-Jan-09 22:34:22

What? I don't want them to enjoy themselves, I want them to suffer! (mwa hahahahahahaharrrr)

No, no! [horrified emoticon] the tourists will laugh with us ... .

No, no. I cringe with shame when our delightful Royal family humiliate us, their loyal subjects and wage-payers, by doing stuff like this.

A little humiliation of them is truly owing.

cool. yes slash the royals budget.

let's not have an elected head of state though. we might get a george bush

MrsGrouchoMarxMerryHenry Tue 13-Jan-09 23:35:15

Oh! I thought you were referring to the Royals laughing with us, zen!! (I was rather confused, I must say!)

Phew!

God preserve us from George Bush. Actually, having said that, elections gave us a Tony Blair and that wasn't anything to laugh about. What's a new democracy to do?
