Politicians are always an easy butt for jokes, and few more so than Alistair Darling. It must be those eyebrows… So let’s all indulge in vicarious afternoon of Darling bashing. NewsBiscuit, God love ’em, tells the story of an innocent game of monopoly at the Henderson family home, which takes a rather dark turn when the Chancellor turns up… Here’s a short exerpt: "A game of Monopoly being played by the Henderson family of Watford took a surprise twist today when the Bank of England stepped in with a rescue package to save one of the key players, Mr Henderson, from what the Chancellor described as ‘almost certain bankruptcy.’ The deal, which had been thrashed out in the early hours between Alistair Darling and Mr Henderson, who was acting as the banker, means that each player will receive a £1 billion pound injection of cash, (although this may take some time to count out what with having to use up all the yellow £1 notes). The short-term borrowing deal led to furious protests from the rest of the Henderson family, who complained that it was unfair to use their money to bail out Mr Henderson so that he could go back to ripping them off." RB thoroughly recommends you read the rest of this hilarious tale of Darling misdemeanors, bonkers banking and Brownite idiocy. And when you’re done with that, check out their "Poland overwhelmed by influx of British investment bankers" story. Oh. And this one too. Thank you, and good night. Picture source
