The £50 note!
In Parliament recently, a Tory MP related the following account in praise of the Prime Minister
"There was a father who gave £50 to each of his three sons and told them to buy something that would completely fill up a room.
The first son bought a load of hay for £50 - but couldn't fill the room completely.
The second son bought a load of raw cotton for £50 – he also couldn't fill the room completely.
The third son was wise and bought a candle for 10p – he lit it and the room was completely filled with light."
The proud MP declared: "Our Prime Minister, David Cameron is like the third son. From the day he has taken charge of his office, our country has been filled with the bright light of prosperity!"
After the applause from the Tory bench died down, Nigel Farage's voice from the public gallery asked:
"So, where is the remaining £49.90?
The whole country is asking this same question!!

I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.
