image for Top London Barrister arrested for kidnap and false imprisonment of foreign nationals
Bridgee Murphy. Forced to write satire 18 hours a day.

The online world of pseudo journalistic spoofing was reeling today after one of the internet's most prolific writers, a prominent Barrister, was arrested by armed police and taken handcuffed with an extremely well powdered wig covering her face in front view of Sky News cameras from her plush London residence.

Sky News interrupted an interview with Victoria Beckham to break the story just after 8 am this morning, the exact reason for the incarceration is unknown but the rumours creaking around the Old Bailey at lunchtime today seem to indicate allegations of kidnap and false imprisonment.

One foppish olde wig who spoke to journalists under condition of anonimity said: "Yes we all knew. It was only a matter of time before she was caught. Winnie, that's what we called her would swan around making us read her Spoofy stories, her knowledge of Indian affairs and American politics was quite frankly astonishing, she even appeared to understand Northern Irish politics and let's be honest, nobody understands Northern Irish politics"

The woman arrested this morning was taken to the high security Paddington Green Police station and formally charged with kidnapping Irish, Indian and American University Graduates and forcing them under duress to produce amusing and sometimes libelous articles which were then posted on a notorious anti Tennis web site, TheSpoof.com.

The incarcerated scribe known only by her pen name "Queen Mudder" shouted to the cameras as she was bundled into a Police van.

"I'll ave you Jalapenoman, you wont get the number one spot you bleedin Texan, this is still Blair's Britain, we have wi-fi and laptops in every cell you little bolloxs!!!"

Make Fergus McCarthy's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
