Police in Westminster have, this morning evacuated the House of Commons and the area around it, after a suspicious amount of gunpowder was discovered in a basement room of the building.
The explosive material was packed into 36 beer barrels.
The find bears distinct similarities to that of November 1605 at the same location.

"If the blasted Supreme Court says we can't proro ... er, prorgo ... er, pororogo ... I mean, close Parliament, then we'll just have to blow it up!"
Meanwhile, Brexit is still uncertain.
