Could YOU bang this up and down and shout "Order!"?

Never let it be said that the canny executives at ITV are slow off the mark when seizing a new broadcasting opportunity, and the crisis at Westminster over the MPs expenses claims has afforded them a chance to catch public attention yet again with a new Saturday night show.

Following on from the success of Pop Idol, and in tandem with the resignation of the House of Commons Speaker, Michael Martin, ITV 1 will commence its search for Mr Martin's replacement next week with Speaker Idol.

The show will invite big mouths from up and down the country to pit their wits against each other in an attempt to become the next Speaker in the House.

Already, there is a massive amount of interest in the show, which will, of course, be hosted by Ant and Dec, those Geordie idiots.

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