image for Royal Script Writer Sacked - Prince Philip Speechless
Fitted with device

Prince Philip had no comment to make today after his script writer, Arthur Askie was sacked for making a grossly unacceptable gesture while prompting the Duke as he was uncovering a bust at a conceptual art exhibition at the Tate Modern.

Former Bernard Manning script writer, Arthur, said "He was ad libbing all over the place as usual and I happened to put my little finger in the air to examine a sore cuticle. The Queen saw me and took it to be an obscene gesture".

A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said yesterday that The Duke was to be fitted with an electronic shocking device to prevent him from talking altogether, so it didn't matter.

"The only drawback is that when someone speaks loudly to him he gets a taser shock in his back passage, the only place we could fit the device undetected. On test trials with the device, groups of students shouted ar his sensor microphone, sending him into a kind of jerky "robot dance", but we have put filters in the equipment now and it seems to be fine. Barking dogs still set it off though."
