Her Majesty the Queen has reversed an Honour given to Zimbabwe dictator Sir Dr Robert Mugabe, it has been announced, with the reversal to take immediate effect.*
It was in 1994 that Dr Mugabe had received the honorary Knighthood of the Kingdom of the Bath, but recent violence, intimidation and other such normal African antics have led to widespread condemnation from the Philistine outside world.
Mugabe's reversal means he will now be known as Ebagum Trebor, a ridiculous moniker, and his claim to the Kingdom of the Bath has also been annulled.
Earlier in the day, Ebagum had tried to force the Queen's hand when he threatened to call off a tour by the Zimbabwe cricket team unless she outlawed the Switch Shot, practised by Kevin Pietersen, something Her Majesty scoffed at.
"Ebagum! That'll teach his little black ass!", she tittered.
