July Theme - Empty

The coffers are empty.
Here at Treasury the pot is more than empty. There is a shortfall of something like £17.5 billion.

No worries though Gordon (he's the unelected bloke in charge of the country at the moment) has got a few ideas to fix the problem. A big spend up next year, cos it's election year and to just print more of the stuff.

Meanwhile at the other end of this street lives Liz (she's the one who wears a crown every now and then), seems Gordon wont give her any of this printed stuff to fix up her house.

I figure that as we (that is you and I who pay a wee bit of the tax) seeing as we are in debt for the payout to the bankers of £19 each and Liz costs us a mere .69p each we should fix up her house. I also figured that if every tourist that visits her pad donated £3 each that would be enough to cover the amount she needs.

Otherwise it seems her purse is going to be empty in 2012.

That's my empty today. Visit all the other versions of empty here:

Well said, Mo. GB is causing a lot of anger, robbing Peter to pay Paul.

Absolutely brilliant Mo. And while we pay nothing for the Queen here, our Governor General who is Queen's representative does cost us just a wee bit. We could always ask her to donate have of what we pay for her to 'Liz' for her house since our Governor General just had her place redone after moving in ;o)

I wonder why Liz can not pay for her own house. I am sure Liz does not pay for the fixing of your house, does she?

Great post! I've just scene empty urinals and that was my favourite post but now this wins the award for best post of the day! Made me laugh. If it weren't so true I think we'd all be crying. Oh, it is true!

Great shot! It will be great if we can ever get out from under the mess.

Its the bankers who have been emptiest - empty of morality, common sense, etc. etc. The only thing that is not empty about them is their pockets - STILL.

Great interpretation. Maybe Betty should take a trip to The Colonies. Then we have to foot the bill!
