Lord Noes, General Alarm and Sir Rah Sera lunched at the Club last week on paella washed down by a quite memorable pinot noir from the Marlborough region of NZ which the wine waiter served by mistake.

“I say” said His Lordship “I thought young George did a quite reasonable job with the budget”

“It was a laudable effort” said the General “calculated to keep that ghastly Gromit person out of number 10”

“It’s so terribly difficult to produce budgets that make sense” said Sir Rah “when we getting so little economic support from the EU and the rest of the world”

“I know dear boy” said His Lordship “how on earth can you turn a surplus when the wheels of our economy are being Greeced so much, the sanctions against Russia are hurting us as much as them, the Chinese economy is like a rice pudding and then there’s climate change, the Obama effect and the Coalition with the Lib Dems?”

“But credit where credit is due” said the General “Angela and the Krauts are still making a quid or a euro or whatever. If the Frog economy gets much worse I can foresee the day when we shall have to march in to Paris with the Krauts to save their arses again. Over the years we’ve managed to save the Frogs from most people but the trouble is we’ll never be able to save them from themselves”

“There’s no question” said Sir Rah “that this budget is proof that David and George are getting the economy right. When was the last time a budget reduced the price of beer and didn’t increase the price of petrol and cigarettes?”

“Heaven help us if that meat-head Miliband gets in” said the General ‘we’ll be governed by a Coalition of Labour, the EU and the TUC”

“Don’t forget” said His Lordship “that the only way Miliband can form a government is with the help of the SNP so there would actually be a UK  Coalition government between the EU, the TUC, the SNP and Labour”

“I can’t help feeling that Nigel is right” said the General “we’d be much better off on our own. If I had my way I’d have a referendum on not only breaking away from the EU but Scotland and the TUC as well”
“Absolutely right” said His Lordship “and we should definitely break away from the US if Hillary gets in. The joint be consumed by a titanic struggle to achieve equality for men”
“By jove” said the General “all I can say is thank goodness we’ve held onto Gibraltar and the Falklands”
