London - (Wingnuts Mess): Six harmless Westmonster Council sanitary operatives say their reputations have been trashed by Friday's arrest on trumped-up charges.
The North Agrican lads had been having a bit of a joke in the works canteen about ex-Hitler Nazi Youth Pope Benedict's London trip.
'Wouldn't it be funny if the Battle of Britain fly-past accidentally dropped some blue ice on the Pope's head, haha?' was the gist of their ribbing.
Unfortunately a Council snoop, acting under the notorious Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act, overheard the conversation and immediately rang Special Branch.
The dawn raid that followed saw the hapless street sweepers hauled off to the Met's state-of-the-art Counter-Terror interrogation suite.
Arrested at gunpoint under the Terrorism Act 2000 the workmen allege they were targeted in a Westmonster witch hunt to justify ludicrous Council spending on policing the ageing Nazi nutter.
"The far cheaper option would be arresting the Pope and his whitewashing kiddie paedo cover-up bastards," defending attorney Dame Sybil Sackcloth said today.
