New musical 'The Smell Of Nausea' today opened in London's West End theatre, The Hypocrodome, and stars Gordon Brown and Jacqui Smith, with co-stars David Cameron and Liberal Nobody, plus guest star Barack Obama.
The musical is set in Austria, and in it lots of childish MPs are being protected by Brown and Smith from the villain, Al Hysteria, whose job is to scare the public into letting the MPs be important again, and to persuade the public to hand over millions of pounds of taxes to the government, to pay the police to snoop on them.
Things get going when Obama appears and begins the first song, 'The Sound Of Bullshit', followed by Brown with 'How Do You Solve A Problem Like Fake Hysteria?'. Then the cast sing 'The Lonely Brown Turd' and 'No Way To Stop Doing What Obama Says In The Middle East', and Smith finishes Act One with 'So Long, Farewell, You One-Eyed Scottish Git', sung while she's dressed in her underwear and holding a leather whip, all of which she really bought for her husband, of course.
Act Two begins with 'A Sham Couple', with Gordon Brown, then 'My Favourite War Crimes' by all the cast, and then it's 'Sixteen Hundred Dead For Oil This Year', a solo by Barack Obama. 'Bomb Every Iraqi Mountain' follows, with all the cast again, plus 'Something Stinks', and the musical ends with the unusual 'Israeli Mass Murderers' with Barack Obama on his own, unusual as he remains silent throughout the song.
Tickets can be bought from Brown and DeVommit in Shaftesbury Avenue, Black and O'Liar in The Strand, and Smith, Smith and Ffilm in Blue Street. Ice creams in the interval will be served in the theatre by Miss Julie Andrew, tastefully dressed in a Nazi uniform, and Donald Rummy, ditto.
The world is alive with the smell of nausea - especially the stink coming from London and Washington.
