A UK Tory to advise banksters on the impact of Brexit, caused by Tories. Camoron hired by village as idiot, Mrs May retires to a nunnery (I made the last one up – the others are true).

Irony continues with “involved in setting up Prosperity UK” – the Tories introduce austerity into the UK. This led to an explosion in the number and use of food banks and the working poor. Fact, UK median wages remain unchanged since 2008. But now Benny (Hill) thinks it can be plastered over.

As for the revolving door problem: perhaps a new version of Cosi Fan Tutti is needed – some update lyrics with commissioners and ex-commissioners as the “ladies”. I use the word “ladies” advisedly, since ex-Commissioners behaviour after leaving their jobs would make a whore blush (yes Jose – I mean you – amongst others).
