The Con/Dem government was in turmoil today as ministers discussed whether to ban farting in public. In a recent case in Malawi two judges argued over a bill to ban farting in that country.

Prime Minister David Cameron is all in favour of this and states that the amount of gasses people emit is too high and to get our carbon footprint lower we must make sacrifices. Ed Milliband the Labour leader asked how would this ban be policed. Will we see police on the streets with Fartalysers as well as Breathalysers and stop anyone who looks like they are just about to let one rip.

Government sources say a ban on farting could lower our carbon footprint by 50%. MP's will vote on the bill in the spring. Sidney Droppone of the Fartlighters Union said They need not introduce a ban as there is enough wind in Westminster to power a small country
