"Big Ben Small Speaker"

The new speaker in the House of Commons has told MPs not to make long winded speeches. Speaking to an empty chamber John Cowbear said "If this place is to remain relevant then long speeches need to end."

Many people find it strange that he is unaware that nobody even goes to the Houses of Parliament anymore. They are all far too busy with their accountants. Indeed many MPs have kept it brief. On being told of the new speaker Sir Hugh Cash-in-the Attic said "Who?"

"Keep it brief" could be a political epitaph for Mr Cowbear. He may not last long in his present position. Or he may get lost behind the Speaker's Chair and never be seen again. Either way his time in such an important post could well be brief.

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