Phone buggers: Coulson booted out after latest fracas

London - (Snoopers): Conditions were today described as ideal given media saturation coverage of the Jo Yeates murder probe and Tony Blair's Iraq War posturings.

Shadow Chancellor Alan Johnson's wife's extramarital shaggings also rather helped deflect attention - given the involvement of a police protection officer in the sordid adultery.

"Couldn't have come at a better time," No 10 spin doctor Andy Coulson told colleagues as his resignation letter was posted online.

The Downing Street communications chief has clung on to his job despite the furor of the News of the Screws phone tap scandal.

But new developments in the police probe saw him squirm like a worm on the end of a phishing hook as the evidence began piling up against former newspaper colleagues.

Coulson will stay on until the end of the month and may collect a megabux payoff rumored to be a whole year's salary.

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