image for Britain is Flat Broke!
Britain is flat broke and even QEII is on the street queing up for her Salvation Army soup!

The latest financial figures to shock the UK have just been released and it ain't good reading. In fact, Britain is flat broke. That's a fact.

The UK government, a beaming guiding light for its people, is broke too!

Even Fred Bloggs unemployed plumber from Deptford, London and his scabby dog called Blair, have declared themselves bankrupt, but can't afford a lawyer.

In fact the amount of personal insolvencies has risen and risen over the last year and Jaggedone's 105 year old Granny is also bankrupt, even had to pawn her hot water bottle, AAAGH cold feet!

The rich and famous are getting away with it but the Queen and her Royal Family are being warned, "there's an icy wind a blowing in the direction of Buckingham Palace!"

In fact the Salvation Army have been asked to supply the Royals with soup, Queen Elizzy loves it!

American Express, Visa, Mastercard and others are hoping to stem the tide by extending their already stretched limits and have offered poor Brits an escape clause:

Instead of paying the balance now they can continue to "shop till they drop" but must overwrite their debts to their children and grandchildren at 16,5% interest.

There has been a massive exodus of Brit Teenagers and kids seen heading for India applying for 'Slave Labour Jobs' in Calcutta, at least it's warm there!

Make Jaggedone's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
