It is reported that Labour cabinet minister, Clare Short, has taken her bat home, during a round of indoor cricket in the parliament offices. She says she's resigning as well.
Short's team were playing a team captained by the prime minister Tony Blair. Short was first up to bat and with 9 players out, they had scored just two runs.
In an emotional interview with The Spoof, Ms. Short blubbed, "This is just typical of Tony Blair and the way he controls the Labour government. You just can't win against him. The only people he likes are 'yes men', how else do you think that daft bitch Ruth Kelly's kept her job! So I grabbed my bat and I took it home. And said to Tony he could stick his job."
Short has been made increasingly upset recently by being passed over for promotion within the government and is said to be insanely bitter and jealous of those who have.
Short was also said to be very annoyed with John Prescott (also on her team), as she remarked, "That fat bastard won't run for anything except the ice cream man."
