Time to meet
WE, <em>the Bankers and financiers of the CITY of LONDON</em>, do challenge thee – <em>OVERPAID, UNDERWORKED public sector workers</em> – to a series of CHALLENGES on the day of your SO-CALLED ‘strike for the alternative’. <strong>CHALLENGE:</strong> a football match. Our team, BANKERS CITY FC, should like to match up against your PUBLIC SECTOR UNITED FC. <strong>CHALLENGE:</strong> a pillow fight. You may bring feathered cushions, our pillows will be stuffed with CASH. <strong>BRING:</strong> pillows. <strong>CHALLENGE:</strong> mud-slinging. We expect you SCROUNGERS to put up a rather good fight in this one, what with your UNFOUNDED ACCUSATIONS of TAX DODGING and huge SUBSIDIES. <strong>BRING:</strong> a strong throwing arm. <strong>CHALLENGE:</strong> a water fight. So we can give you a proper good wash to remove the STENCH of SOLIDARITY. <strong>BRING:</strong> water, balloons. All challenges will be adjudicated by THE COALITION GOVERNMENT, who have proven themselves time and time again to be respectable, NEUTRAL facilitators of our disputes. Location: Westminster Central Hall, Parliament Sq. Time: After the RALLY at the end of the MARCH, approx. noon <em>Look out for the bankers’ black umbrellas.</em> SPECTATORS: free entry. Bring big spongy hands, whistles, vuvuzelas. (Given the possibility of no genuine bankers turning up, please come dressed as one so the challenges can proceed!)
