Arise Sir Brucie!

The blame for the credit downgrading of France was laid at the door of Strictly Come Dancing presenter Bruce Forsyth today.

The Eurozone has been in crisis recently with bail-outs to Greece, Portugal and Ireland, while other countries like the UK and the US have been fearful of a downgrade because of investment and export income.

Forsyth today defended his involvement. "This is a total shock. I just rate countries credit risk as a hobby, you know, some pensioners play dominoes, others do the crossword or sudoku, while Strictly is off air. Someone must have seen over my shoulder in the local cafe and alerted the relevant authorities. It was never my intention to cause more tension between the Brits and our neighbours across the channel. Please tell Nicolas Teacosy I'm very sorry for the misunderstanding".

The three major credit agencies are Moodys, S&P and Fitch.
French officials will meet later in the week to discuss their options.

If they believe the downgrading was secretly planned by Downing Street, who were involved in Bruce recently receiving a knighthood they could send Eric Cantona to kung-fu kick David Cameron and Nick Flegg.

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