In a dramatic move, Prime Minister David Cameron has sacked his Cabinet declaring that his colleagues had failed to see the economic peril the Government was in.
Demonstrators on the streets are, however, unlikely to accept Cameron's move.
Everything depends on Cameron's new Cabinet.
Rumours are circulating in Whitehall and the comings and goings at 10 Downing Street are being watched by political commentators.
'I have seen several rats scuttling around' commented a BBC political hack 'my forecast is a swing to the Right.' Boris Johnson emerged in smiles, waved to the cameras and said: 'I am jolly well saying nothing. That is for the PM, you know. He has my full support. We will sort out this economic mess in no time.'
Tony Blair was seen at a back entrance. He has had experience with George Bush which should be helpful and his stance on Iran is certain to find echoes of jubilation throughout the kingdom. 'A good war will take our minds off our own troubles' was a comment from someone close behind Blair.
Rupert Murdoch was also seen knocking on the door of number 10, phone in hand. He is believed to have agreed to serve in the Emergency Cabinet as Communications Minister.
David Cameron came onto the steps of number 10 and announced that his moves would be temporary. 'An election will be held when we can afford it. The National Unity Transitional Succession (NUTS) will listen to the will of the people.'
The Queen has been kept informed about developments and has every confidence the wedding of William and Kate will go ahead as planned.
