Prime Minister Tony Blair dramatically broke down during police questioning over the 'cash for honours' scandal.
Police had visited Mr Blair early this morning whilst continuing their investigation. When asking Tony Blair for the one hundreth time whether or not he sold honours for cash, "he started leaking what looked like battery acid," stated DC Peter Platt. "smoke was coming out of his ears and he just seemed to keel over and stop."
Prime Minister-in-waiting, Gordon Brown, was on hand to issue a statement to the press. "Mr Blair seems to have experienced some form of malfunction. Of, course, whilst we are waiting for Tony to be repaired I shall be taking command of the country."
When asked why it wasn't revealed to the nation before that Mr Blair was in fact a being of mechanical proportions and not actually human, Brown replied, "We didn't think it was important. As long as he was performing his normal day to day functions and ran the country to the best of its ability."
Tony Blair will be sent to the Central Agency for Mechanical Biotechnics Department a unit which houses similar types of mechanical machines such as, Vernon Kaye, Beyonce Knowles and Shilpa Shetty to name but a few.
