Well-Hung Rumours Pounded Down Currency Market

Funny story written by Backandtotheleft

Sunday, 4 June 2017

The value of the pound has slipped after Back and to the Left news declared the possibility of a "hung Parliament". In our defence we never said there was going to be a "hung Parliament" we said "we should hang all of Parliament". There's a definite difference.

The pound got so weak at one point it was taken round the back of the bike sheds by a couple of Euros and beaten up for it's lunch money.

One part time political commentator said:

"It's slipped so far if it were an Olympic ice skater.....it would get zero points"

A strange but chilling analogy. Which is something we hope people think about our eulogy when we die.

The pounds recovery could of course be stunted by the fact the Tories have wrecked the emergency services. Meaning that the pounds 999 call won't be answered until the middle of the week.

Leading financial expert Lord CashMoney appeared from behind a golden statue of himself and said:

"Obviously we're hoping the pound doesn't fall any further. I once had a pound fall down the back of my sofa. Didn't find it for a week! Can't let that happen again. Definitely not what I voted Brexit for."

Hopefully the pound can regain it's pre-eminent position as totally the best piece of tasty currency ass in the world.

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