The USA Bankrupts UK

Postby ksl » Tue, 29 Jun 2010 3:44 am

America Bankrupts UK
The government also revealed that embassies in London owe more than £36m in unpaid congestion charges since the charge was set up in 2003.
It is disclosed by the House of Lords that this none payment of charges is disgraceful as the Country is suffering its worst economical period in history, One so called diplomat who goes by the name of SMS was actually caught drunk as a skunk chasing beavers down the high street of Oxford Rd on his mountainbike 9 times in as many days, and fined the maxium 1 pound, as the old Victorian bylaws have not been updated, since the penny black was issued in 1840.

The worst offender, the US, owes in excess of £3.8m.!

Sounds like Guillani's gripe against the embassy's in New York and the UN diplomats....
