image for HMS Victory To Be Centrepiece Of Guy Fawkes Celebrations
A useless heap of timber (from a renewable source)

Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship has been in drydock in Portsmouth Naval Base for many years but is to play a leading role in the 2009 November 5th celebrations.

A volunteer crew of Royal Navy sailors reinforced by several gangs of immigrant workers will remove the ancient vessel from the dockyard and deliver it up the Thames to Westminster Bridge.

Once there, HMS Victory will be broken up and piled on the grass area in Parliament Square.

An effigy of Guy Fawkes will crown the giant pile and as darkness falls on the 5th of November, Lord Mangelson The Moderniser will set it alight.

Archaeologists and historians are up in arms at the proposal, but the Dark Lord is adamant that the Victory is an affront to our EU partners, the French and is probably riddled with woodworm anyway.

Make Blazing Saddle'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.
