British Tea Party Launches!

Can we call it reverse colonialism? We're remembering in Chicago a year later--thank you Rick Santelli. Now our neighbors across the pond are joining us in the spirit: British Tea Party Movement to launch on Saturday (Note: they will be serving actual tea.)

(With a boost from Daniel Hannan.) Remember--he inspired us too! P.S. And the Financial Times reports the warning of one of our statesmen--Sen. Judd Gregg (R-NH): US senator warns of ‘financial meltdown’ risk

HT Lansing, Michigan Tea Party.

I love how it all sounds so British too - "Do try to come: here are the details."

and they're serving tea, love it!

This should be interesting to watch. Politicians everywhere: Beware!

Those lovely chaps who attended had a jolly old time. It was really rather good by all accounts.

However do not let the politeness of some British gentlemen distract from the strength of feeling on this side of the pond.

It speaks volumes that the political class is levelling pejorative statements about the American movement in an effort to undermine any attempt to develop a British equivalent.
