Friday Caption Contest: MPs in the Age of Austerity Edition

Tom Winnifrith
Friday 11 January 2013

I have just worked a 22 hour day, juggling the needs of sick staff, bills to pay, deadlines to meet etc. That is what life is like in the private sector. The bit of the economy that employs folks, pays over taxes to support the State, etc. And the chances of myself or my staff getting a 32% pay rise this year are zippo. Frankly almost no-one in the UK will get that sort of rise this year.

But one bunch of parasites, tarnished by allegations of corruption, working 3 days in 5 and universally despised reckon they merit a 32% hike taking them from the top 5% of earners into the top 1%. Even had I worked only 21 hours yesterday I would still be livid.

This week’s caption contest is in honour of the scumbags who forget that they work for us not the other way round. Please post your captions in the comments section below.

The best caption will win an “It’s Time to leave T-shirt which you can also buy exclusively here.

For what it is worth my entry is: “How dare you compare us to MPs – we only spend some of our time at the trough.”

I am sure that you can do better

Last week I got a great response to this picture

Among those worth noting are

Brokerman Daniel: “That’s as close to The British Falklands Islands you’ll ever get Bitch!”

Chris G: “A gnarled and wizened old relic of a bygone era goes on display in Buenos Aires… …and a map of the Falkland Isles can also be seen.”

And Jon Pickles: President Fernandez: “We may no longer be able to afford a full-scale invasion but at least we can be justifiably proud that just 35% of Argentinian GDP buys this 1:500,000-scale chrome and pine replica. Salud

But for sheer malice a Piss off Argentina T-shirt goes to Brokerman Daniel.

You can of course buy your very own T-shirt here.
