Banking bailout debt sparks online Brown-bashing game

23rd January 2009

Aldershot, UK) Fresh plans announced this week by Gordon Brown to use tax payer cash to sort the chaos in the banking system have prompted a UK web publishing company to create an addictive online game where players can pelt the Prime Minister with wads of cash.

BailoutBrown.com states: "If Gordon Brown is so determined to spend our cash, let's at least have some fun giving it to him!"

The aim of the game is to hit Gordon Brown with as many wads of cas as possible in 30 seconds, whilst he ducks behind cameras in front of 10 Downing Street.

A counter keeps track of how much money has been thrown at Gordon Brown to date.

"There is no doubt that the second banking bailout was timed to be wiped off the news agenda by Barack Obama's inauguration. People are really angry - we get thousands of emails from visitors to our other websites, PetrolPrices.com and HousePriceCrash.co.uk, many of whom have strong opinions on how the problems in the UK economy are being handled."

"We want to provide British people with a way to release their frustration at the way our money is being spent, and the debt generations to come are being saddled with. BailoutBrown.com is really addictive. The 'thwack' sound it makes when you hit Brown is so satisfying."
