image for Spokesmen go on strike

Spokesmen throughout the UK have voted to go on strike indefinitely until their demands for more recognition are met.

It's thought that the action was brought about when a spokesman for Prestatyn County Council was mistaken for a bystander in a recent newspaper article. A spokesman for the spokesman's union refused to comment as they are on strike so the leader of the bystander's union, Mr Willie Loiter quickly stepped in announcing, "It's ok for these spokesmen going on strike but where does that leave all of us bystanders".

Former spokesman, Mr Rubberneck, said, "If this action escalates the bystanders could also decide to go on strike which could put national security at risk. The last time this happened we had to bring in the volunteer groups such as onlookers and eye witnesses, and that was a shambles".

In an emergency press conference Deputy Prime Minister, Screaming Lord Sutch, said, "We are trying to negotiate with the spokesmen's union but as they are on strike they are refusing to talk. We are currently using semaphore to communicate but for this we need translators who are on a work to rule". Ted Boffin, local butcher, refused to comment on the grounds that he's not supposed to be in this article.
