Sportacus shuns UK viewers

Reykjavik, Iceland: Producers of the hit children's TV programme Lazytown, which is produced in Iceland, have retaliated over the UK Governments plans to sue Iceland's government, after the collapse of its number 2 bank Icesave which left thousands of UK savers in limbo.

Spokesman Sportacus said "If the UK wantz a war then we'll give em one. We are going to ban Lazytown from being shown on UK channelz az of today. No more sportz candy, no more good intentionz or healthy eating messages, no more Stephanie or Robbie Rotten."

Robbie Rotten, the villain of the series, also chipped in "Muhahahahaha the UK can go fuck itself."

Stephanie was less than impressed though and said in a squeaky voice "Aawwww why can't we just be friends"

Puppet, Mayor Milford, organised a protest through Lazytown holding placards and banners & burning the UK flag.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown retaliated after the shock announcement today with tit for tat threats of cancelling Blue Peter which is shown to Icelandic viewers.
