image for Sir Fred to the rescue
Money destined for an MP's pocket

Sir Fred Goodwin, the former boss of the wheezing and coughing banking giant, Royal Bank of Scotland, has leapt to the defence of MP's who are coming under scrutiny for their excessive expenses claims.

Speaking via satelite phone from his personal A380 Airliner, Sir Fred claimed 'this furore is nothing but a storm in a teacup of Earl Grey' before pausing to ask his personal assistant to change the caviar to the crystal bowl.' It's quite clear to me that the MPs have kept within the rules and regulations and this was done with the full knowledge of the government. After all, that's how it was regarding my pension and nobody made a big song and dance about it'

When we approached No10 for a comment, a government apologist said' Gordon doesn't think this is helping'

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