It was a bit of job to get any members of the Government to reveal anything about the new Government strategy to come clean and speak openly and honestly in future press conferences.
Eventually I found one, who agreed to meet me in the back of my Skoda Estelle, and answer my questions - he would not reveal his name, and it cost the Spoof nearly a months back-hander money. I can now reveal how the interview went, as he climbed into the car, hiccuped, and dropped his cigar on the floor.
I asked, "Mr X, is it true that the Government is committed to plain straight forward answers in the future?"
He scratched his lower regions, passed wind, and answered, "I'm glad you asked me this question, because it needed asking, and rightly so. The Minister of Information only the other night, dismounted his rocking horse, put away his toy soldiers, and addressed this issue, promising to consider the possibility of such actions being considered for being put forward as a draft proposal, potentially to be analysed, and appraised, for consideration to be taken on board, and interpreted, investigated, and deliberated, for the evaluation of the estimated prospective affects this may have on the overall merited appreciatory advantages that can be accrued, by the very acceptance of very existence of any, although it may be clandestine, readiness to advance to the stage of actually listening to such a wonderful idea, then taking it to the next level, for it to be thought as green paper worthy.... what was the question again?...Hic"
As he got out of the car, he caught his head sharply on the car door... but didn't seem to notice?
