A French practitioner of the Hollywood adult movie industry trend of anal bleaching, today claimed that the practice had extended beyond adult movie performers and spread its tentacles into the world of international politics.
Raymondo Derriere, of the Ecole De Blechemente Coulez Parisienne said that the practice was being increasingly embraced by corrupt politicians, whose sole intent is to promote a squeaky clean image to the electorate.
"It is simple," Derriere explained. "If a politician is asked at some point if he or she is clean or dirty, zey can abandon les pantalons and tell ze public: Examine ziss arse. Does ziss look like a dirty corrupt arse to you?"
Which seems on first reading to be fair comment, but on further examination can easily be exposed as a lie by a discerning member of the public, on the grounds that all politicians - like bankers - are full of shit.
They are just slightly more experienced in disguising the fact.
Because they'll go to any lengths to save their disgusting arses.
More as we get it.
