Lords Reform expose poor casting to play out Lucas epic

Funny story written by Munro

Monday, 9 July 2012

Throughout the corridors of power it is well known that the Prime Minister idolises the Star Wars antagonist Lord Vader and for some time many backbenchers have feared this obsession would play out in party politics.

Fourteen months since getting the nod from the media empire or 'Emperor', who also shows a love for the intergalactic trilogy, it has been revealed that the House of Lords reform is in fact simply a measure to live out a fancy dress fantasy.

The all powerful Prime Minister's plans to put forward a bill to restructure the Lords, reducing the amount and potentially creating a second chamber, have attracted much criticism and unsurprisingly created a 'Rebel Alliance' across the parties.

The whistle blower known as 'Wookie' is particularly unhappy at the idea that Luke Skywalker would be played by either Ed Milliband or Nick Clegg, Clegg being a more fitting candidate having already felt the dark-side of the force coupled with his ability to speak French, German and the tribal tongue of the Ewoks.

The PM is looking to reduce the house of Lords whom for years have been loyal to the evil warlord and this could see many of his subjects being given the leather glove, another subplot during this intergalactic banking conflict.

If he defeats the appallingly cast Jedi knights he could extend his empire with a replica of the house of commons, which if left boxed and sealed will be worth £2 trillion by the next election.

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