Chancellor George Osborne has denied allegations from Labour’s Alistair Darling that he gave the go ahead for Downing Street to be re-tarmaced without getting a written quote first.
Witnesses say they saw Osborne bundled into the back of a white transit van and taken to a cash point in the high street, where he was forced to withdraw £7bn pounds in cash, before handing it over to head ganger Toby Shaw.
The gang say they needed the cash up front in order to buy tarmacadam and promised to be back Tuesday afternoon to finish the job, just as soon as they have finished emptying the coffers over in Brussels – a job which they started a few months ago but had nearly finished.
‘Toby said if I paid cash in hand he wouldn’t make me get down on my knees and gravel over the tarmac’ said Osborne ‘but as I told him, we don’t want gravel.
You’ve got to watch these road crews or they’ll just take advantage.
At least I got the road crossing sign thrown in as part of the deal’.
