Lowering the Tone

‘WE INTERRUPT this message for an important message. Our great and super leader Tony has made the following announcement, reported in the pages of the Independent, under the headline: “Blair: I will abandon presidential leadership”.

Blair will never be President so long as Bush is in charge

Tony called a meeting of his “cabinet” – a loose grouping of followers whom he occasionally convenes in order to inform them of his latest edicts. Yesterday, they were thrilled to hear that the Leader’s new idea is to abandon his “top down” style, in favour of, er… something super that will be worked out at a later date.

“We will be more open to change when it is right to change,” commented a minister afterwards.

How sad that this exciting news was delivered to late to sink into the consciousness of the electorate of Brent East, who shamefully abandoned Tony’s earthly representative in yesterday’s by-election.

The Lib-Dems won, but the immaculately turned-out Anorak candidate managed to push the rather scruffy Tory into fourth. May we take this opportunity to thank all those who voted for us, and remind them that the special offer on our autumn leisurewear range still holds good.’
