Red Tories run out of cash

Over in the UK, Res Publica, the bastion of Red Toryism, source of the ‘big society’, home of the self-styled ‘philosopher-king’ Philip Blond, has run out of cash. Staff are being locked out due to unpaid rents, paychecks are empty … Looks like David Cameron’s cuts are coming home.

Where are those bloody elves and their bags of gold when the worthy folk of merrie England need them?

  1. Always refreshing when trash crisis is followed by cash crisis. I hope that particular dialectic will assume greater potency in the near future.

  2. Elves & bags of gold. Maybe you meant leprechauns and their pot of gold -but then that would be Ireland whose working class is also “sharing the pain” of austerity. Ain’t capitalism grand.

      1. Thanks for the link, I was wondering where my instinctive aversion to Tolkien may have been coming from. I guess, in a way, L. Ron Hubbard may have picked up the baton: basing a “Religion” on some turgid science fiction.

        On a sillier note and a re-doing of Katy Perry. I hope more of this is going on in the dorm rooms of America: I Read Some Marx (And I Liked It)
