Oops - always log out David

David Cameron has been left red-faced after hundreds of government secrets were posted on Twitter. The secrets, ranging from the location of possible nuclear waste sites to which biscuits are eaten at cabinet meetings was Tweeted across the world wide web.

"At first we thought Downing Street had been hacked by a foreign power - possibly Syria," said M, head of MI6. "But then we realised that they wouldn't be interested in the bus time tables of central London."

Investigations by MI5, MI6, GLP, SOCS, GCHQ and Mattel, the makers of Scrabble, traced the source of the leaks to Downing Street itself.

"We realised that all of the secrets pouring onto the World Wide Web were originating from a computer inside Downing Street," said M.

With Bradly/Chelsea Manning now in prison in America for a similar release of secrets, albeit not quite on the same scale as the one originating from a computer inside Downing Street, the security services were put on high alert.

"There have never been so many followers of David Cameron on Twitter," said M. "He's normally very dull. However, his popularity rating was such that he had more followers than Simon Cowell, and that is an achievement these days."

After extensive investigations that involved driving round the streets of London in high powered vehicles with sirens blaring, lights flashing and heavily armed and armoured police officers crammed inside, the crowd of police arrived at Downing Street, close to where they started.

"Our police officers burst into Number 10," said M. "After an extensive search that uncovered Nancy Cameron in bed with her secret boyfriend and Samantha kissing Santa Clause, we found the source of the leak."

It turned out that Arthur Cameron, aged 7, was in the living room playing with his dad's laptop that his dad had left logged into Twitter.

"We took it off him," said M. "Then we told him he was a naughty boy and sent him to bed without any biscuits."
