After allegations were made that David Cameron, wide faced leader of the UK Conservative Party, was behind the current economic crash, he has struck back claiming that the real reason was the weight of the American estate agents.
Mr Cameron Shouted at some Americans in the heart of London: "Your estate agents are so fat, when one of them falls over the entire world economy goes with them."
Mr Cameron was carried off by police but was released without charge on the express command of our lord and master Irn Brun, who is desperate to free himself of the special relationship with America, which he feels is a wast of valuable friend ship which could be better used on Scotland.
Americans in the city have recently be subject to a wide range of attacks on the state of their economy, ranging from the sedate: "The dollar is worthless when compared to our beautiful English pounds!", to the offensive: "Your money is as much use to us as an X-box 360 is to a child in Africa with no access to mains electricity!" This, shouted to the American ambassador by John Reid the former home secretary and angry bald man.
Whether this will effect the special relationship is unknown, but it is thought to be already having an effect in the heart of Washington.
