Grey squirrels are seeking protection from ethnic cleansing in a new bid to establish immigration rights in the UK.
It was emphatically not the Tufty Club. It was emphatically not Squirrel Nutkin. It was emphatically not the anti-split-infinitive Society's annual bash.
It was humbling and inspirational to see this tiny band of tiny creatures protest against the threatened squirrecide promoted by the Red Squirrel Brigade.
"After all", said Gary Squirrel, a spokesbeing for the movement, "we were brought here against our will, crammed into tiny ships in cages, welcomed at first as we took the dreys and food that the native Reds were too proud (or fastidious) to accept - and now we are threatened with a cull! We have not chosen to live in exclusive communities - it is only the way it has worked out".
"This is why we have brought our protest to the steps of the Europ........................".
At this point, Gary Squirrel was run over by a Eurojuggernaut.
Further protests from the Squirrel community are expected.
