Online game lets you take revenge on 'Bail out Brown'

If you're fed up with Gordon Brown using tax payers' cash to bail out the UK's banks, then a new online game could be just the thing to soothe your frustrations.

According to the creators of Bail out Brown, the aim of the game is "to hit Gordon Brown with as many wads of cash as possible in 30 seconds, while he ducks behind cameras in front of 10 Downing Street".

The website features a list of the top 10 players, presumably those that have hit Brown with the most cash, and a counter that keeps track of how much money in total has been thrown at the PM to date.

At the time of writing, this figure stood at just over £11.2m. And if you're in any doubt, Bailoutbrown.com also offers a timeline detailing how much cash has been donated by Brown and to which banks.

"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," said a spokesman from Fubra, the company behind the website.

"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."
