‘Who’s a big twat now, eh?’ jeers Marx from beyond grave

As Europe spirals into deeper economic depression, a smirking Karl Marx has broken decades of silence and spoke from beyond the grave to jeer: ‘who’s the big twat now, eh?’

‘Perhaps Mr Weirdy Beardy Lefty had a point after all, eh?’ taunted the father of socialism. ‘When I said the defining features of capitalism include alienation, exploitation and reoccurring, cyclical depressions leading to mass unemployment, you all just laughed. Not laughing now, are you? Eh?

Despite earlier declaring that capitalism was responsible for ‘revolutionizing, industrializing and universalizing qualities of development, growth and progressivity’ and was a great improvement on previous economic systems, Marx said that today’s problems ‘made all those miserable years in a London hovel almost worth it.’

‘You were all so cocky when the Berlin wall fell down, but what good did it do you?,‘ he continued. ‘Me, Engels and John Maynard Keynes are pissing ourselves up here.’
