Us and Them

You couldn’t make it up. TORIES ON A DIFFERENT PLANET shock, episode 96. Grant Shapps decides the budget needs a little extra boost, so he puts out a poster claiming that beer and bingo tax cuts will help “hard-working people do more of the things they enjoy.” He doesn’t enjoy these things, but he knows that “they” do, and that’s why he feels so confident that he can tell us about what’s good for them. It would be funny, except that someone’s voting for people like this to be in charge of us.
