image for Prime Minister unveils new Department for Sandwiches
One of the many sandwiches being overseen by the new department

In an effort to waste even more taxpayers money, the Prime Minister today launched his new Department for Sandwiches.

Headed by Secretary of State for Sandwiches, Ruth Kelly, supported by newly appointed Minister for Fillings John Prescott and Minister for Bread, the late Harold Wilson, the Prime Minister hopes that the UK will lead the world in ready-made sandwiches.

The Health and Safety executive will impose stringent new rules to ensure the department keeps up appearances, and Hyacinth Bucket has been drafted in as Sandwich Czar to ensure that not only quality ingredients are used, but that sandwiches conform to European standards laid down by the European Treaty of St Marks and St Spencer 1995.

Launching the new department, the Prime Minister was said to be thrilled that this new initiative got off the chopping board so quickly, while his returning minister John Prescott was said to be.....well we couldn't really understand as he had his mouth full with an egg and cress on brown at the time. Well, at least speaking with his mouth full, his egg and cress went partially on Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

For anyone in doubt, the new website specifying how sandwiches must now be made can be found at www.morepublicwaste.gov.uk
