image for Pentagon's Madoff gunboat diplomacy as USS Big Schtick moors opposite Houses of Parliament
Security concerns prevent publication of the aircraft carrier's concealed image

London - (Gunboat Diplomacy Mess): America's massive new aircraft carrier the USS Big Schtick has moored on the River Thames slap bang opposite the Houses of Parliament.

The move has been described as the ultimate in US/UK Special Relationship gunboat diplomacy following frantic G20 whorsedealing last week about Bernard 'Ponzi Scam' Madhoff's missing billions.

With its 90 attack jets and helicopters and an aircraft runway the length of 10 football pitches the carrier's presence has a poignant message from the Pentagon.

Any connection between the missing Madoff $50 billion hedge fund caper and a two billion pound MPs' Iraq War expenses slush fund is purely fictitious say CIA London sources.

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