British taxpayers are refusing to bail out Greece. It was decided they should do so under a sneaky European Union deal.

"It's just not fair," said one British taxpayer, Arthur Giblet, of Berwick Hills.

"They did it in a bloody sneaky way with just some of 'em at the meeting and our Government wasn't even put together. Not that A vote meself like. A don't 'ave time coz I'm always lookin' for jobs, or avoiding 'em."

Apparently Darling Alistair will be flying to Brussels for a meeting after promising to leave Ossie Osbourne and Bob Cable, his Tory and Lib counterparts, totally in the dark about the goings on at the meeting.

Euro-zone leaders are attempting to get round objections from other countries by invoking Article 222 of the Lisbon Treaty which allows decisions to be made on major issues without needing a unanimous agreement to ensure its passage.

British taxpayers have decided to do something about this situation, which they felt, at first, was totally out of their hands. THEY ARE BOYCOTTING GREEK YOGURT, FETA CHEESE AND BLACK OLIVES!

"We'll not go down wi'out a fight," said Arthur Giblet.
