10p beer mat

I10p beer mat 10p beer mat reverse

I seem to remember a few days ago that Iain Dale was looking for a design for a new beer mat to commemorate the passing of the 10p tax rate and the revolting Labour MPs, (not to mention Darling’s decision to increase the price of a pint). It took a while coming Iain but here are the obverse and the reverse

Remember, about 5.5 million low paid people, those earning below £18,000 pa., are now going to be hammered with higher taxes after the abolition of the 10p tax rate by Gordon Brown in his final Budget. He hailed it as a “tax cut” at the time to ridiculous cheers from Labour members. Well they’ve seen the light now, and realised that it was one of the biggest con tricks ever pulled by Brown. Even Socialist Worker is rounding on Brown today, ridiculing him for making the rich richer, and the poor even worse off!

Well, it won’t be long Mr. Brown before we have our shout, we get the first round in on May 1st. Brown “bottled” the chance of a general election last year, let’s see if there is any “body” left in his beer now, or is it all froth?

With apologies to the world famous “Brown Dog”

  2. Perhaps they look a little bit too much like the real thing to be noticed straight away – especially after a couple of pints! Still a good idea though, I’d have a few.
