image for Buckingham Palace Facing Axe Flouts Planning Regulations
"It's all gonna have to come down!": Bert Clapdoctor

Officials in the City Of Westminster Planning Dept have shocked the Queen by sending her a letter stating that Buckingham Palace hasn't been built in compliance with the correct planning regulations and that it will have to be razed to the ground in March of this year.

Bert Clapdoctor, planning supremo for the Borough, told The Spoof:

"It's all been done without the proper paperwork being sorted out you see? According to the planning application we have on record, submitted by Sir Norman Foster, permission was given only for a chicken coop and call me pedantic if you will but what we have here is definitely not a chicken coop.

"It's all gonna have to come down and although I won't enjoy calling the bulldozers in, it's more than my job's worth to let it stay there"

Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, when told of the surprise development was quoted as having said: "Tough titties but them's the breaks quite honestly. My hands are tied on this one"

English Heritage is said to be going to fight the decision and will lodge an appeal on behalf of Her Majesty. However The Spoof understands that should this prove unsuccessful, then the world famous tourist attraction will indeed be demolished and replaced by a Starbucks super coffee shop and a branch of the popular high street computer gaming store, Game.
