Club Osbourne

Today is the day of the budget
When the Chancellor gets busy with his boxes
When Osbourne sets out again to fudge it
And takes our money for his taxes – we begrudge it.

George Osbourne likes his Clubs.
One to munch on,
Another for luncheon,
A member of all the 'too much' clubs
The leader of the 'out of touch' club.

He will only cater for the elite Tory Boys club,
the rest of us peasants he will certainly snub.
Soon, like Cyprus there'll be no cash in the machines,
poor old Georgie Boy will have to come clean.

He doesn't live in our world
Where biscuit crumbs matter,
He's the king of the cats
And just keeps getting fatter.

Biscuit: Club Biscuit (we tried orange and mint - greedy!)
Taste test: 9 out of 10
Cost:  Jacob's Club Variety Pack (24 biscuits) £3.99 from Tesco in Brockenhurst


  1. Bit of politics, bit of politics - very Ben Elton!
