London - (Ass Mess): Albion's ancient prophecy that the ravens will leave the Tower of London when the UK's Prime Monster is finally arrested for treason appears to be hours away from its chilling fulfillment.
This morning barely a handful of the fabled black birds were left in the medieval fortress after a gaggle of them were seen by Yeomen Warders, flitting into the Summer Solstice sunset last night.
Gone forever, some believe.
For the last six months covert refurbishment of the Tower's ancient dungeons has been conducted under utmost secrecy by the mythical battalion garrisoned at the walled castle which is responsible for any incarcerations imposed by enactment of the Treason and Felony Act of 1837.
And with the UK jails full to bursting the move is unsurprising.
Sources close to Scotland Yard have said that the cash-for-peerages evidence dossiers may be stored at the medieval stronghold in its impregnable vaults under the Jewel House.
"They've waited years to nail the little tosser," a Tower source admitted today.
"HMP Belmarsh is like the London Hilton compared with what awaits at Her Majesty's Pleasure."
