image for Cameron's Liner U Turn Shock
New Liner for the Queen

David Cameron has shocked his colleagues by deciding to support the suggestion from Education Secretary Michael Gove that the Nation should buy the Italian cruise liner 'Costa Concordia' as a present for the Queen on her Diamond Jubilee.

Initially Cameron had thought the use of £60 million in this way would be contrary to the atmosphere of austerity he has been encouraging but a word from Prince Charles has caused a dramatic U Turn.

Charles told a thoughtful Cameron that the gift of a liner to the Queen would be a lovely surprise - 'She could go on a cruise with 500 flunkies as a retirement present. This would allow me to take over and follow in her footsteps, just as Coming Un took over from Coming Ill in North Korea.'

A Cabinet meeting is due to make a final decision shortly. Fierce lobbying from millions of unemployed young people, who have the effrontery to suggest that the £60 million could help them find jobs, has been dismissed by a Cabinet sauce as 'typical student politics'.

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