Godfrey Bloom receives bongos
Having publicly stated his unhappiness at the amount of UK aid headed for the now infamous ‘Bongo Bongo Land’, the right honourable Godfrey Bloom of UKIP fame is set to receive a brand spanking new pair of bongos from Dundee’s Rainbow Music.
In a public statement to Mr Bloom on the retailer’s Facebook page, Rainbow Music declared that it would be sending him the bongos on account of his somewhat lacking geographical nouse.
Indeed, having never heard of Bongo Bongo Land ourselves, we thought we’d share Raonbow Music’s Facebook statement in full.
Let’s hope Mr Bloom gets plenty of use out of them.
“Hi Mr. Bloom,
We are a lover of the bongos and sell many from our humble music shop, Rainbow Music in the bonny city of Dundee. It was to our surprise and bemusement that you wanted to cut foreign aid to Bongo Bongo Land, as we were not sure as to the specific geographical location of such a place and we thought you were referring to the places where Bongos’ are made and played. We were unaware that we were eligible for foreign aid it has made us further confused.
As an MEP you must be well informed of such foreign aid and would appreciate it if you could point us in the direction of any money that is coming our way.
In appreciation we are giving you a pair of the finest Cuban, Bongo drums which you can have a good session with. The bongos are a great way for a politician to unwind after a hard day of representing the people, particularly as you sounded rather angry and stressed out on the wireless this morning.
Also if you find yourself in the Dundee area, we would like to invite you into the shop for a wee dram and a mutual drumming of the bongos. We think it really would do you the world of good.
If you could take a photograph of yourself playing the bongos and send it to us, we would love to host it on our blog at http://www.rainbowmusiconline.co.uk/
We would also like to remind you that the Notting Hill Carnival is coming up and we thought it would be a great way for UKIP to connect with the people if you have a float with you playing the Bongos, I am sure it would put a smile on the faces of the people of this great nation.
We include a picture of the Bongos which we will be sending you.
