Good Friday-time, colonies! England, Land of Kings, would like to participate in what shallst now be titled, Thine Gloubal Tea Party Ninny Knickers Movement. The British Tea Party component shallst launch its first Proutestation this Saturday, and shallst be led by Sir Telegraph Writer Human Daniel Hannan, a “British fiscal conservative.” Actual tea shallst be there, unless certain Bostonian riff-raffs, wooled in uncouth Savage Knickers, destroy their tea again.
Mister Hannan The Leader explains:
Labour has raised more than a trillion pounds in additional taxation since 1997. Yet, unbelievably, Gordon Brown has still managed to run up a deficit of 12.6 per cent of GDP (Greece’s is 12.7 per cent). A far lower level of taxation brought Americans out in spontaneous protest last year.
Hmm… let’s suggest this is not the most accurate read of our American Tea Bagger movement? Get rid of that word, “spontaneous,” for starters. Then remember that the teabaggers’ protest came almost immediately after Barack Obama signed the largest middle-class tax cut in history, affecting 95% of Americans.
“Race” also played a factor, according to radical Internet liberals.
So just don’t even try to out-crazy our wingnuts, Lobsterbacks, got it? OOOOH MUMMY MUMMY PRIME MINISTER GORDON CHUMMINGTON TOOKETH MY NINNY-NINNY GOLDEN MONEY FARTHINGS, MUMMY MUMMY SAVE ME MUMMY, whatever. Try speaking American for once.
