After last ditch efforts to avert a conflict Britain has declared war on Germany.
In a statement to a hushed House of Commons Prime Minister Cameron David declared : 'It is with regret that I have to tell you that peace negotiations over Europe between ourselves and Germany have failed and therefore we are at war.'
This comes as no surprise. Cameron always has to say something to get attention and this time his ploy certainly worked. As usual the Opposition was unable to get a coherent statement together: all Ed Miliband could say was 'What a pity.'
The French have not been helpful and Sakorsky has told Cameron to 'shut up and keep his nose out of Europe.'
Angela Merkel said the time had come to put Britain in its place - outside the door. 'The days when gumboots could be sent to a failing Empire have gone. There is no room for Wellington Boots in the modern Germany.'
The Euro picked up on the news whilst sterling took a nose dive, just missing a dammed river where Germany was building weapons of mass destruction - according to Tony Blair who has just joined the Government.
