By George, he hasn’t got it…

There wasn’t much feedback on yesterday’s ‘blog, it received one ‘like’ – which has made this week a pretty popular one for the WOWS ‘Blog, albeit we’ve still had about more activity as the Syrian Tourist Board (note, people going there to sell weapons aren’t tourists).  


I was a bit surprised that I didn’t get any correspondence from any fans of Mr Bean – although I’m told that they’ve decided to stay silent… 


Anyhow, it’s time to move on to today’s ‘blog, which is about George Osborne and what a fine and honourable man he is. 


Sorry… I was getting confused there between George Osborne and Stephen Fry…


I don’t know much about George Osborne, although I know that he’s a keen fan of domesticated birds – hence his budgie being in the news a lot today or something…


It’s fair to say the George Osborne is a dreadful Chancellor and he’s also a bit weird as he used be married to piece from the board game draughts – hence him being called the Chancellor of the ex-chequer…


Hang on…


In today’s budget, he reduced the duty on a pint of beer by 1p! Whey! Osborne, you absolute LAD! (We’ll gloss over the fact that beer duty has risen over 40% since 2008). 


In all honesty, this will have no affect on any member of the public (least of all Osborne as he doesn’t know what a pint of beer is, although he thinks his butler may occasionally drink some of them) as the decrease in duty won’t be passed on to consumers – and even if it was I can’t imagine the 1p reduction in duty would be the turing point between having 6 pints one evening instead of 5 pints.  


If we take £3 as the average price of a pint of beer, with a 1p price reduction then you’d have to drink 300 pints before effectively getting a free one and drinking 300 pints isn’t easy – although Freddie Flintoff has offered to give it a go (he’s planning on starting tomorrow morning and he’s hoping to finish… erm… tomorrow morning…).


There were a few other points in the budget… for example the Corporation Tax rate is now 20% for all companies… except Starbucks… who’ve decided that they would rather continue paying nothing…

This week Jimbo (@JimboStudios) & Fisher (@CFishTank) tweeted all about services (public & private).

Jimbo – (@JimboStudios)

Poll Station – Out of all the services, this gets my vote

Library – I don’t go here anymore as me & my ex girlfriend split up in there. We just weren’t on the same page

South Yorkshire Police – a very p̶o̶o̶r̶ good police force.

Traffic Warden – my ex was a traffic warden who split up with me over bad parking. She said I’d crossed the line

Records Office – have details of every birth and death since records began, or since Bruce Forsyth’s birth date

Post Office – I got the sack from managing a Post Office for licking my staff. I was just stamping my authority

Citizens Advice – went to see these. They told me to wear green more often as it brings out the colour in my eyes

Polling station – out of all the public services, this one gets my vote

Recycling centre – I didn’t used to recycle but now I take my garden cuttings here. I’ve turned over a new leaf.

Dentist – I’m my dentists best customer, they keep telling me that I’m going to get a plaque

Fisher – @CFishTank

Motor breakdown service or Alcoholics Anonymous?

The Coast Guard – disappointingly, they’re doing very little to prevent coastal erosion

The Fire Service – is something that Alan Sugar provides.

Traffic Wardens – I saw one playing football – he was sent off after he got 2 yellows and was fined £30

The AA – they call themselves ‘the 4th emergency service’ – I don’t think Alcoholics Anonymous is that important.

Universities – they have Chancellors – all of which know more about economics than George Osborne.

Cave Rescue – they help people who are trapped in an abyss – but they’re yet to save Peter Andre’s career.

999 – is 1 less than the amount I hate Piers Morgan on a scale of 1 to 1000 (1 being dislike and 1000 being despise)

Mountain Rescue – they try to save people but it’s really hard for them – they often have a mountain to climb.

HM Revenue and Customs – this department is dreadful – it makes me wonder why I bother paying my taxes.

Doctors – I once saw one who asked me my opinion on suppositories – I told him that he could shove it up his arse.
