In a surprise move, the Labour Party today unveiled Lord Heehaw as its new leader.
According to political commentators, this is the first time for at least two hours that the Labour Party has been headed by an ass.
Lord Heehaw, who stood in the New Forest in the recent election, is believed to be locked in secret discussions with Tom Jones, leader of The Green Green Grass of Home Party in bid to form a new Government.
Lord Heehaw is prepared to completely abandon Labour's manifesto promise to declare war on Wales - despite his recent claims that the country had weapons of mass destruction.
This is now believed to have been a breakdown in communication. In fact, wool from Welsh sheep is been used to manufacture tampons of massive proportions.
"This was an easy mistake to make and I can assure the British people that it will be the first of many under my leadership," said Lord Heehaw. "But rest assured that we will probably drop a few bombs on Wrexham in any case."
Lord Heehaw also hinted that his new cabinet will come from Ikea.
