image for Government denies Swine fever masks cover-up

The government today vigorously denied claims that a mass issue of masks - ostensibly for the use of preventing the spread of swine fever - were in fact an attempt to cover-up the spread of panic amongst members of the government, which, it is claimed, has already caught a disease which leaves it in terminal decline.

Responding to the story, a Downing Street spokesman dismissed the story, saying "It is simply ridiculous to argue that this government has any aim other than to protect the British public; we make their safety a matter of priority at all times."

He went on to add "We are determined to save Labour... er Britain from the a potentially deadly threat, which may incubate over the summer months, only to hit hard in the autumn and leaving us all stricken this time next year".

Conservative front-benchers scoffed at this defence; "This is another clear sign of the desperation and despair that has gripped an administration in decline" stated one shadow minister, adding "we should know - we were in the same position little over a decade ago".

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

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
