Coming soon: political amnesia, on tap!

Following the success of my classic story Alzheimer's Cure Worries I have, in all modesty, decided to return to this delicate subject.

Top Alzheimer's researcher, Dr Brain, is working at the forefront of helping evermore people remember things they had forgotten.

A number of prominent figures, in particular, several members of the Conservative Party have been cured through the results of his research, not always with expected results. Some of these people have now formed a committee to complain that science is sometimes a hindrance to humanity.

Several Tory politicians have been seen demonstrating outside Dr Brain's London clinic, urging the public to sign their petition, demanding an end to this cruel research.

"Please sign our petition," they urge passers by.

Surprisingly, few people want to engage.

Theresa May commented: "When I was home secretary, I did things I would rather forget. Now, Dr Brain is helping me to remember them. It is most upsetting. He should have his research stopped!"

Conservatives have pledged that, following Brexit, funding for mental health will be redirected to a programme of adding midazolam to the UK water supply.

Midazolam is a medication which can be used to induce sleepiness, decreasing anxiety, cause a loss of ability to create new memories, and create amnesia.

In a surprise step, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has announced that he wholeheartedly backs the government's future plans.

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