A new test on the credibility of MPs has resulted in the dismissal of several of the worst offenders. Warnings are being sent to several others.
Chief among those 'lacking all credibility' are a number of Cabinet Ministers who 'continually fail to provide a reasonable approximation to the truth'.
This devastating shock to the political system is likely to cause several bye bye elections where the offending MP's will have to face the electorate again wearing 'WE ARE NOT TO BE TRUSTED' T shirts.
The organiser of the tests on MP's declared 'the shock and horror' he felt at 'the total lack of shame' which was displayed by the accused MP's.
The Queen, distressed at this news in her Jubilee year, has asked her son Charles III, to get the House of Parliament in order before the Olympic Games when 'the eyes of the world will be upon us'. Charles III is filing for a divorce from Camilla and aims to marry a three time divorced former stripper. 'If this doesn't justify my abdication I don't what will' he said.
