Boom-Bust-Boom ! Juss Like That ...

I overheard Gordon telling the Army Chief of Staff he wanted attacks on the Taliban. I butted in and suggested 45p in the pound.

When I was getting ready for my Budget broadcast, the spin-doctors told me I needed to prepare my pitch. I couldn't find any pitch, so I used creosote.

I went to the doctor the other day, I said “with all the excitement of the Budget I can't sleep'' he said “Try lying on the edge of your bed, you'll soon drop off”

Peter Mandelson told me he was forming a group of choirboys. I said, “Are you having me on?” He said, “Well I'll give you an audition, but I'm not promising you anything.”

So I said to Gordon,
“What on earth shall I tell them the economy is going to do in 2010 and 2011?” And he said . . . . .

Tell them what they want to hear.

To hell with the truth, they are all brainwashed, dumbed down, fools.

There is no room for the truth on my watch.

Now, watch and learn while I crash sterling.

Debts, what debts?

Very good. But could someone take the PM and Chancellor to one side and explain the Martha Stewart Law Of Revenues to them. " Only the little people pay tax." There is a meeting at LSE next Tuesday when Mr. Timms will have it all explained to him, that is anyone who is really rich, or well off with access to a private bank account and advice, will not be paying 50%, or indeed much at all. A few better off may get caught, but the rest have all long gone.

Welcome, OldSouth - glad to see you like Bearwatch, we're fans of Sackers here too

but Were I King of the World, I would ban rugby ... - steady on matey, what's that all about ???

Too right, Demetrius: I was in a Building Society (no longer mutual; and had better remain nameless) to discuss a Cash ISA, and the salesman offered me a 'product' that would solve the problem of the new higher rate ...
