image for Wombles To Act As Consultants To Green Party
Leave it to the Wombles!

The Wombles, those pointy-nosed furry creatures that mope about on Wimbledon Common collecting and recycling rubbish, have been recruited as consultants by the Green Party, it has been revealed.

A meeting between Green leaders and head Womble, Great Uncle Bulgaria, took place this week on a bench on the Common, and a deal was struck which will see Londoners in the furry grip of the Wombles should the Green Party candidate Sian Berry achieve success in the forthcoming London Mayoral elections.

Speaking at the launch of the Green Party's waste plan for London in Lewisham yesterday, Berry said:

"We want to Make Good Use of Bad Waste. To push that plan forward, we have enlisted the best role models for waste recyclers Children's TV has ever produced - the Wombles."

Opponents have accused the Greens of a shabby publicity stunt, and say that the Wombles' systems of collection and recycling are outdated and unworkable in 21st Century Britain.

But, answering the criticism from his burrow on the Common today, Bulgaria said:

"What a load of old rubbish!"
