Gordon “Bottler” Brown, Scottish Prime Minister non-elect
Bottler has been at it again marching his troops to the top of the hill and marching them down again. He was again talking rubbish – this time about his plans to impose swinging new taxes on the English with a pay-to-throw rubbish tax, charging English citizens yet again for the disposal of rubbish. Then Bottler realized that this might not be a vote winner so, on the eve of a Commons vote, he engaged reverse gear again. Unfortunately for Bottler his hencemen refused to follow his latest retreat. The result is that ‘pilot’ schemes will be introduced and widened until the new tax is imposed throughout England. The money raised is expected to be transferred to Scotland in a further attempt to buy votes.
