The protest movement in Egypt that brought about the downfall of long time dictator Hosni Mubarak was celebrating today with the news that the President's former ruling party had been officially dissolved.
Following last week's court order confirming dissolution of the National Democratic Party, all NDP members were marched to Tahrir Square in the centre of Cairo and thrown into vats of boiling sulphuric acid.
In scenes not a million miles away from the worst excesses of the French Revolution in the late eighteen hundreds, the closest political allies of the disgraced President were forced at gunpoint to climb up stairs to the top of wooden platforms from where they were forced to jump into large industrial sized vats filled with super strength acid..
Each "dissolution" was greeted by a cacophony of cheers from the assembled masses.
One jubilant onlooker said he hadn't had such a good laugh since " camel won Egypt's Got Talent".
