Why bother?

When putting out an advert for a future Prime Minister, recruitment firm Wet Sprocket forgot to put the important disclaimer 'Previous Applicants will not be considered'.

Wet Sprocket press bod, John Grayling, said 'It was a simple oversight on our part, we seem to be getting through a fair few Prime Ministers, and it is a sought-after job for anyone who was not loved enough as a child'.

Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, and Jeremy Hunt have sent in exactly the same CVs they did last time, whilst giving no heed to what they have learnt since 2016.

'We are just looking for someone with a sensible head on their shoulders to lead the country, again,' said a despairing Grayling.

He is no relation to Chris Grayling. One of them is fictional.

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