image for Voter asks Gordon Brown for his money back
Potential reply to Mr Crankshaft from the Prime Minister

Henry Crankshaft, a Labour voter from Westhoughton near Manchester, shocked the British world of politics when he knocked on the door of number 10 Downing Street earlier this morning seeking a refund.

The Prime Minister, answering the door in his slippers and smoking jacket - well the prime minister doesn't actually smoke, it was just that he had leant against the cooker while preparing breakfast and his jacket caught fire - welcomed Mr Crankshaft in, not realising what he was about to to be asked.

"I simply feel that because the Prime Minister and his team have made such a dismal mess of things, I'd like my money back.

"I didn't go to number 10 for morning coffee, or to shout insults at Mr Darling in number 11 - I just went for a refund, as is my right.

"For example, if you buy a skirt for the wife from M&S, and she doesn't like it, you take it back for a refund.

"I'm working on the same basis with the PM. Sadly I can't take the Prime Minister back to M&S, because we didn't buy him there, and besides, only part of him is paid for by me, but I would nevertheless like a refund for the part I have paid for over the past few years.

"That having been said, I imagine the quality control at M&S is much higher than we the voters have had to tolerate with the current bunch of politicians.

"Anyway, I'm just hoping I don't have to use the "Sale of Goods Act" and end up going to court. Hopefully he'll be man enough to return the portion of my tax which has gone to service him and his nice cronies."
