image for An Interview with Geoff Orill, Satirist Here at the Spoof Institute we have many famous writers, all of whom are under strict curfew

Today I had the pleasure of talking to Mr Geoff Orill, renowned political satirist, about his latest book "They're All C*nts".

Me: Mr Orill, what was the idea behind this story?

Geoff: Well, Geoffroy, I imagined a world in which Daily Mail readers had been given the vote, and the horrors that could be unleashed when an incompetent government held a referendum on a very contentious but important issue without preparing for the aftermath.

Me: Ok. Now, forgive me, Mr Orill, but isn't that just what has happened here in the UK in the last year?

Geoff: Is it? Oh shit, am I awake?

Me: Yes I believe so.

Geoff: I'm always having this dream that I'm a writer and I write the most amazing things when I'm asleep. But sometimes when I'm awake I don't remember where I am.

Me: So you wrote this book in your sleep?

Geoff: No, I wrote it in a dream that I had while I was dreaming that I was asleep, which turns out to be reality.

Me: Ok, I'm not sure I understand. Moving on, how do you think this work compares to your previous work, "The PM Is A C*nt", which was about David Cameron.

Geoff: Is David Cameron real too?

Me: Yes.

Geoff: Then I'm very embarrassed. I've just been writing down things that have been happening in the news and presenting them as satire.

Me: But we have enjoyed it.

Geoff: They seemed so ridiculous, how could they not be satire? But all this time I've just been writing news. I feel such a fraud. Just one question. Who is the President of the United States?
