Your host is revelling in the morning post, for a change, no bills, no junk mail just a cheque from Gordon Brown
Goldeneye gets his rebate !
Danger - the following post may contain rants
Yes folks, as previously reported Gordon Brown gouged Goldeneye some time ago, well several times actually but being specific, I was informed I had overpaid my income tax.
When they informed me of this a couple of months ago I objected strongly to their terminology.
Stating that I had overpaid I didn’t overpay I was over charged !
There’s a subtle difference, their choice of wording suggesting it was my fault.
Anyhoo, today a cheque for £654.08 fluttered gently from the letter box onto the Goldeneye Welcome Doormat !
It certainly makes a change to get something back from Gordon Brown, even if it is something that was mine in the first place and was cruelly taken from in error !
I shouldn’t be too hard on the miserable Scottish ******* I suppose, after all when he increased my income tax this year by abolishing to 10p introduction rate of tax he did make amends.
Apologizing on TV to the British people (pathetic thing to do) I was reassured to hear him say that in hindsight it was a mistake and the Chancellor of the Exchequer will sort it out and nobody will lose out this year - there will be a compensation package.
Here we go again with a difference of opinion in the meaning of basic English words.
You’ll note the word nobody highlighted in the quote from the Prime Minister (later confirmed by that idiot Chancellor whose name I cannot even remember) forgive my ignorance and don’t accuse me of pedantry but isn’t nobody an all encompassing term ?
It turns out what he really meant was:
Nobody as long as you have children, receive state benefits or a state pension.
We’ll not me then, nor many others !
Possibly that makes us “nobodies”
Pause to take several deep breaths …
The next question is what to do with the moolah?
Being heavily in funds may possibly have gone to my head already.
What should I spend it on ?
I suppose I could get that loaf of bread I’ve had my eye on for a while
It’s gone up about 40% recently but now I think my cheque puts me in that elevated position of the rich and famous and we all know that the Jet Set Brigade can buy bread and even, if Forbes is to be believed, eggs and rice
I sit here now awaiting the news that some unforeseen expense will come in totalling £655 !
