Kinnocks in cash tidal wave

with 5 comments

Neil and Glenys Kinnock

“It was frightening” – Journalist

The couple were only out enjoying the summer weather on the beach at Calais which had been strangely deserted after their arrival in Europe, strolling nonchalantly along the gravel they were surprised and shocked when the tidal wave of cash crashed around their ankles almost sweeping them away.

Journalist photographer Sam Snapper was there:

“It was frightening” he said

Although a little shaken by the incident, the former Labour leader was reported to have told the small assembled coterie of journalists

“We’re not bad, it wasn’t that much of a shock really. We should be OK when we are settled back in London”

A visiting English tourist chipped in:

“I’d never seen or heard of such huge amounts of cash floating about, and it looked to me as though the Kinnock’s weren’t that bothered and took it all in their stride”

There were unconfirmed reports in some newspapers that the couple had been seen stuffing their pockets and filling carrier bags before heading to the ferries for the return journey.
