There was shock today on the Conservative front bench, when it was announced that Tory leader, David Charlatan, was to step down from his role after only 15 months in charge.
Mr Charlatan, 19, became leader of the Conservatives in December 2005, when it emerged that nobody of any substance, including him, wanted the job. Since then, he has bungled around several key areas of policy, changing his mind about things as often as he changes his underpants.
Undecided, and willing to compromise on virtually anything, he appears to be almost a carbon copy of his Labour Party counterpart Tony Bliar, and has been described as Tory Tony, after the PM.
Indeed, and not a lot of people know this, Mr Bliar is, in fact, Charlatan's father, a secret so secret, that neither of them know about it.
The only person privvy to the information is Cherie Bliar, a real hound.
Charlatan, when asked about his immediate plans, said that, as he had always felt so close to Mr Bliar's political philosophy and, even, his physical appearance, he might join the Labour Party, and run for the leadership when it becomes available later this year.
Reacting to this, Mr Bliar, who, as well as Mr Charlatan, was a crackhead at University, said:
"Mmmm...he reminds me of myself sometimes."
