Yesterday The Spoof reported on Tony Blair's alleged addiction to fruit machines in London's gaming arcades and how it is driving him to bankruptcy. Well the story has taken a dramatic new twist as cash for peerages has now be come intertwined with the whole flipping business.
Our computer bod has today discovered that there is somebody on eBay offering 'UK peerages' to the highest bidder. The seller, calling himself Tonybee, asserts that they are the genuine article and 'good as gold' and has marked all three with a reserve of £20,000 each.
It is strongly suspected that Tonybee is none other than Prime Minister Tony Blair and that the money is needed to cover his debts believed to be racking up at some £1000 a day.
A London hardchaw and debt collector, Arthur Bastard, told us:
"I can't say much but I 'ad to go round Downing Street the uvver day to collect a monkey, so you do the sums pal"
The beleaguered PM has issued a statement saying:
"I don't owe nobody nuffink and if I do, I expect to settle up pretty soon. But of course this won't be necessary because as I say, I don't owe nobody nuffink and if I do, I expect to settle up pretty soon. Right?
