TMB chairman says "stick with austerity" in eve of budget speech

Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle has called on Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne to "stick with austerity," in an eve of budget address to the West Lancashire Women's League, earlier today.

Speaking at the meeting in Lytham St Annes, Sir Norman said: "This budget is the perfect opportunity for Mr Osborne to implement a programme of swingeing cuts to welfare spending. I have no doubt that, if he heeds my advice, it can only be good for tripe."

Sir Norman referred to research which showed that sales of tripe increased whenever people's disposable income was reduced.  "Mr Osborne might even want to think about making tripe consumption compulsory.  If everyone in the country was forced to eat just 60 grammes of tripe per day, it could rejuvenate the tripe industry overnight," he said.

In response to questions, Sir Norman said he was inspired by events in Greece, where banking controls had restricted individual account holders to withdrawals of just €60 per day.  "That sort of money doesn't buy much these days, but it certainly buys a lot of tripe," he said.
