image for Conservative Manifesto Nominated For Booker Prize
It's not easy writing a manifesto. You need to dream up some bloody silly ideas.

The Conservative Party's election manifesto has been nominated for the prestigious Booker prize. The award, given to the best work of fiction, has long been the goal of all authors.

The manifesto, "We're In It Together" tells of how an upper class dandy tries to make an entire nation believe that he understands their needs and that he really cares about them. In the story the dandy, Dave, travels all over the UK saying "Yah, I know what you mean" to a succession of misfits and losers.

This is the first time since 1983 that a political party has been nominated. Then the Labour Party were nominated for their horror story "We Are Going To Fuck The Country Right Up In The Unlikely Event Of Us Winning".

The Booker judges this year will be Susan Boyle, Peter Andre, Wayne Rooney, Rhian Sugden and Salman Rushdie. Rushdie was a surprise choice.

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