A Spoof journalist found himself on the receiving end of Prime Minister David Cameron's ire today during a Downing Street press conference.
It was when our political correspondent Paxton Quigley attempted to ask a question that the prime ministerial hackles rose. He asked Quigley for which newspaper he works and was told the Spoof. We quote Mr. Cameron's response:
"The Spoof? That rag? It just prints scurrilous nonsense about the royal family, the Chancellor and me. If you really want a career in journalism I suggest that you work for a proper newspaper. Next question."
The Spoof's humiliated reporter was forced to leave the conference to the sound of drunken jeers and guffaws from fellow members of the alcohol sodden Downing Street press corps. He later consulted the National Union of Journalists about his treatment but was told that the union agrees with Mr. Cameron's opinion.
