Top BBC bosses were reconsidering their decision to scrap , Robert Kilroy Silk's morning show, following Gaddafi's claim that he was Kilroy's love-child.
Observers had often commented on the similarities in appearance of the two figures, but had put it down to pure speculation --- until now !
I want my daddy back on T.V. !' was the emotional appeal from the distraught despot as he spoke from his desert tent in Tripoli.
My mummy met daddy-Kilroy in London during the swinging Sixties.
'Naughty mummy had sex with Mr Silk, and produced identical twins : naturally the gutter press had a field day and called us the 'Tripoli Twins'.
'Unfortunately', Gaddafi wept , mummy and daddy split up.'
' I went back to Libya with my father whilst my twin sister Anne stayed in the U.K. with mummy.'
'And that's where it all started to go wrong!'
'I wanted to be the world's most hated dictator, but failed miserably.'
'But my twin sister, Anne- Robinson Silk, went on to become the most despised person on the planet with her 'Weakest Link' T.V. show.'
'Aint life a bitch ?'
