Peter Snow, who was last night prevented from wearing his blue suede shoes because they were likely to infer political allegience, was livid that his Swingometer Party failed to register a single vote in this year's local elections.
Mr Snow takes up the story:
"The Swingometer party is traditionally neutral, in that it appeals to the widest spectrum of voters in the country.
"Our policies are one of openness and neutrality - we swing either to the left or to the right, irrespective of the political bias. We are proud that, for example, when we swing to the left, voters don't have to worry that we're going to harass them out of their cars, make them eat organic roots and take away their 42" plasma screen TVs, or if we swing to the right, migrant workers don't have to worry they might be rounded up and shot at dawn.
Previously, Mr Snow's Swingometer Party was always first to declare, although they never ever contested seats and the reason they usually fail to gain votes is that no one actually votes for them."
But in the world of reality TV that is the BBC late at night, no one seems to be the slightest bit bothered.
