Gordie shows off new cabinet

The Prime Minister created a stir in parliament today with the unexpected announcement of a new cabinet.

With the recent resignations over the ongoing MPs' expenses scandal, the last thing expected from Downing Street was the news that Gordon Brown had put together a new cabinet.

For an exclusive preview, the Prime Minister had invited Nick Robinson, political editor of the BBC, into Number 10 to see the new cabinet, and the following is a summary of his findings.

It seems that it's a 'Shmeckdrek', 4-compartment cabinet from IKEA's popular oak-effect range, and with a Phillips screwdriver and some Bostik wood glue, took the Prime Minister, with encouragement from his wife, only 3 hours to assemble.

Nick Robinson went on to say that "As with every domestic home-assembly, I can categorically confirm and furthermore state in a very serious political voice, nodding my head and waving my hands around a lot in a very sincere manner that there are three screws, a piece of wood and a strange metal round thing left over.

"I spent an hour with Mr Brown and the assembly instructions, and agree with him that the bits left over do not affect the final outcome of the cabinet."

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