image for Harry Potter To Become New Labour Minister For Magic
Not Harry Potter

Harry Potter, the JK Rowling creation, is to become the new Labour Minister for Magic, after the authoress made a huge £1million donation to party funds on Friday.

Potter is a little lad magician, and prone to performing magic spells, something Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his beleaguered fellow ministers could well do with, after a horrendous past twelve months, when everything they've touched has turned to excrement.

Rowling gave the cash to the government because she has too much, after writing the never-ending series of Daniel Radcliffe books.

Despite being able to wave a wand and pull rabbits from a top hat, Potter may well struggle to overcome Labour's seemingly insurmountable problems.

And author Rowling laughed as she said:

"I think we're all having a bit of trouble separating fact from fantasy with this Labour government. Even I would be hard-pushed to write a happy ending to this debacle."

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