Grand Old Putsch

I would donate it all to Tea Party Republicans, who would thence commence to destroy the world's economy. In glorious tatters I would then declare myself the last multi-millionaire on Planet Earth!

Well I think they should...

Just renationalise BT and then roll out FTTP at cost and and for free to the consumer and make enough to cover the costs from business and overseas users.

"Won't somebody think of the shareholders!!"

No.
