image for Politicians Ignoring Polygamy

The idea that British Politicians were ignoring polygamy was reinforced today when it became clear that although Conservative MP Monty Bedwetter claims expenses for a wife in Kings Lynne and another in Thetford, he actually spends most of his time in his brother's wife in London.

The MP married his first wife in 1982, but because she kept her surname he says he thought he was allowed to marry again. His second wedding was held in Mauritius, and although Hello magazine said 'yes' to the 'just cause or impediment' question, nobody took any notice.

When asked in a recent press conference what his views were on monogamy, Monty said it was fine as long as it was only felled from managed forests where replacement trees were planted. He said he couldn't stand the idea that monogamy was sometimes illegally harvested in the Amazon rainforests where the polygamies lived.

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