image for Ken Livingstone worried over strikes
What's next? Restrictions on pie and mash?

King of London, Ken Livingstone, is 'in a right two and eight guvnor', as news breaks tonight about wild-cat strikes among chapters of London's Pearly Kings and Queens.

Firebrand Pearly Shop Steward, Stanley Jobbins, told members of the PK&Q Union, that it was "Down the frog and toad brothers and sisters!" at a mass meeting held on London's famous Lambeth Walk.

The Spoof understands that the action is being taken as a result of draconian new rules, due to be introduced by meddling Brussels Bureaucrats, limiting the numbers of buttons that may be sewn onto the costumes that these colour characters wear.

A puce with rage Mr Jobbins told our reporter, "It's a flamin' liberty son! What's it gonna be next eh? Next fing'll be restrictions on pie mash and liquor sales"

The newt-loving monarch, Livinstone, is not too pleased and has spent all day running up and down the 'apples and pears' between his office and fax machine trying to broker a deal that will see these loveable cockney nutters back on the streets before the holiday season.

However Mr Jobbins, resplendent in a be-buttoned rig-out complete with peaked cap and red neckerchief, commented, "Things are at an impasse son! And I can't see any good coming of all this malarkey."
