No stars, 700 keys

The current tension in North Africa has prompted the Libyan leader Colonel Gadaffi to offer would-be rioters holidays funded by the state.

Anti-government demonstrations in 2 of Libya's immediate neighbours - Tunisia to the west, where the president was ousted, and Egypt to the east has resulted in officials of other Arab states searching for a way to ensure that their own citizens have no incentive to riot.

As a result, the Glorious leader of the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya announced today that free holidays would be given to those thinking of opposing the current regime.

The Abu Salim resort in Tripoli has been named as the first place to welcome would be anti-revolutionaries. It boasts large high walls to protect those inside from the harmful rays of the sun, cosy accommodation within one of its many small rooms, one uncooked meal a day and a spa room where staff will demonstrate the use of water and electro therapy.

Despite the offer, no Libyans have applied to spend the next five years at Abu Salin. The government claims that this is due to the unswerving loyalty and unconditional love that is felt by all imperialist hating Libyans for their wise benevolent leader.

More once they untie me from the radiator.
