New name negates National Debt

The United Kingdom is OFFICIALLY OUT OF DEBTwe can exclusively reveal, following a statement by Mr. George Osbourne earlier today.

The UK has managed to clear all of it's National Debts in one go.

But it's at a cost.

Earlier this year, Newcastle FC managed to sell the naming rights to their original stadium. Instead of St. James' Park, the Stadium is now called "Sportsdirect.com@St James park", which many will be excused for thinking is an email address. This reduced the £100 debt spent on pork pies within three seconds!

So, in an attempt to reduce national debt the Queen of England has sold the naming rights for the United Kingdom.. Which means all the maps need to be reprinted. The English football team will have to change it's name. The flag may need to be redesigned.

Because ladies and gentlemen, you are now all citizens of Chavlaa-Rooneytropolis-Amazingprimeminister-Prettyshitville.

That's right. We all come from CRAP.

Controversial? Just a bit. But at least it's a mild improvement on Welsh village Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerwychwyrndrobwllantysiogogogoch.

One was made up. The other wasn't. I'll leave you to debate it ;)

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