There was pandemonium at 10 Downing Street today, as one of the Nations largest and most influential Unions threatened to take strike action. In doing so they would leave the public without spoof news for an indefinite period of time.
A source with close ties to the Government was able to speak to us on the condition of anonymity. (Former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith)
"It's a difficult situation, although it isn't about me or my abuse of tax payers money, so I really couldn't give a shit."
It is thought that the Union is claiming massive compensation from the Government for discrimination, by bringing the very foundations of spoof writing into disrepute.
"By not stepping in to bring equality to the Media business us spoofers have become 2nd class citizens and that's just the popular among us. Many others would be delighthed to make it into the top 10 in the citizen class. We can not go big bellying around, with expensive food and wine, like a tabloid column writer. The worst part is, we have an even harder job. I don't think a real 'journalist' would be able to walk a day in our shoes.", claimed a Union spokesperson.
"Not only do we work long hours, creating fictional tales, and lampooning real news and celebrities, but the people in the so called "Media", only have to report on an event as it happens. A nut-less monkey could do their job, as the great Les Grossman says."
