The Tory Party Chairman (Grant Shapps – the Conservative Poster Boy) has just tweeted:
#budget2014 cuts bingo & beer tax helping hardworking people do more of the things they enjoy. RT to spread the word pic.twitter.com/5vbL7RDAg5
Has his account been hacked?The Picture?
It’s genuine! I don’t believe it! 10p reduction in bingo duty and 1p reduction in beer duty.
So what is the Chancellor doing for the those “who do not drink beer whilst playing Bingo”?
- Top rate tax dropped – for those lucky enough to be paying top rate
- More tax allowances – for those able to save £15,000 per year
- Abolition of starting rate taxation on savings – for those able to save
- More tax allowances – for those owning businesses
- Air Passenger Duty cut – for those able to afford Long Haul flights
All in it together? Let them
eat cake play Bingo and Drink Bear!

2/2 I’m Grant Shapps, and I approved this message.* *bingo marker not provided
So who will be the first politician to be photographed at a bingo club in the next few days? Why am I asking, it’ll be Farage won’t it.
I’ve got it. Everyone complained about the bedroom tax so this bingo thing is Osborne’s way of giving back to people who have a full house.
The worst of it is Grant Shapps is the only kind of grant the Tories are still happy to offer.
Grant Shapps‘ office currently full of advisors rocking in the foetal position amidst desperate cries of “Can’t we just say it was hacked!”
“David, it’s the phone for you; apparently Grant Shapps has tried to be clever again…”
@grantshapps Millions of us hard working Muslims will now have to start drinking and gambling to enjoy the budget.
