image for Bristol Terror Alert: Spoof Writer Involved?
Politicalpop in his back garden - (archive)

Police in Bristol have this morning swooped to arrest a man acting strangely who could well be former writer for TheSpoof.com, Politicalpop, according to my imagination.

Politicalpop, 96, lives very near to where the incident happened in Westbury-on-Trim, and is known to be an Islamist sympathiser, at least, I think he is.

Police have not, as yet, revealed the name of their arrestee, but have confirmed that he is currently being detained under the Prevention Of Terrorism Act.

Pop, or "Mr Smith" as he is known to his neighbours, was, until recently, an avid writer of clever stories on the satirical news site TheSpoof.com, until his wife told him to: "Stop it!".

Latterly, he has written and produced several plays for the West End, amongst them No Sense Please, We're British, and Carry On Bombing, a study of spoofwriting, and a writer who, no matter what he writes, cannot achieve fame.

Mr Pop has been unavailable for comment since the incident, fuelling speculation he may, in some way, be involved. A lady who answered his door, claiming to be his wife, Bessie, told reporters:

"Clear off, the lot of you! He's down the pub!"

Make Monkey Woods's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
