David Cameron has been true to his word about introducing a new style of politics. His latest move (gimmick? No surely not)is to ask a young horse to join the government.
"I am excited about this move" Said Mr Cameron whilst he repeated patent leather shoe blows to Nick Clegg's solar plexus."Pickles is the right choice for a role on government. He stood head and shoulders above the other candidates - or rather hooves and haunches. He won hands down - or rather ten hands high.
"Also - I have no worries about any any sexual misdemeanours - he doesn't sow wild oats, he eats them!"
Some are comparing Cameron's latest appointment as an indicator of his increasing presidential - nay Caesar like - style. Nick Clegg - wiping away the blood from his mouth after a particularly ferocious punch from the Prime-Minister - said: "I don't accept that he is behaving like Julius Caesar. I mean, appointing a horse to government is much more like Caligula."
