Prime Minister David Cameron has extended an invitation to the Daleks to join the UK's coalition government (but not the gay or Pakistani ones).
Phoenix Joe asked Mr Cameron to explain what was behind this latest rather perplexing move. "Well Phoenix, as you know we have created an eclectic coalition hell, I even asked a Labour MP to join us to help eradicate poverty - they created most of it so let them clean it up." He said with a huge grin. "So I thought why not go the whole nine yards and include an alien race as well - the LibDems are pretty alien to most people anyway" he chuckled. "Sorry Nick - just kidding!"
Including the Daleks makes a great deal of sense - for one thing when the cuts really start to hit and people are rioting in the streets, the Daleks are going to become pretty useful going around and keeping order and exterminating the trouble makers. On the whole they are about as trust worthy as the LibDems and they won't go back on the promises they made during the election just to get a sniff of power."
"We have agreed that the Daleks will get two cabinet posts (one will be the new ministry for Industrial Relations) and the other has yet to be determined. They will also get one PM question time slot per month, which should be very interesting."
"I am quite sure, Phoenix that Daleks will be a huge help in mending the broken UK society and if we get any more trouble from that black bloke in America about the oil spill, we can ask the Daleks to pay him a visit….. Bloody hell that's him on the phone again…"
