image for Ed Miliband Questioned by Police About Red Plot
Red Ed is also a suspect in the mysterious bus painting incident.

Ed Miliband has tonight been questioned by police after he was found to be in possession of a suspicious pot of Red Paint.

The paint is believed to be of a particular shade of red that was found at the scene of a very serious crime.

That crime was the vandalism of the front door of number 10 Downing Street.

The door, which used to be Black, was painted Red this afternoon, whilst most members of Parliament were listening to George Osborne's budget speech.

Ed Miliband said that he could not possibly have painted the door red because he was also listening to the budget. But insiders at the house of commons have said that they saw Ed arrive at the House late, and with suspicious red paint on his hands.

No one suspected anything was amiss at the time, but now with hindsight, everyone is pointing in the direction of Ed as a possible suspect.

One elderly back bencher called the police the minute he found out that the door had been vandalised, and said that they should question Ed because he and his friends believed he had been caught red handed.

Ed was held by the police for 20 minutes, during which time he refused to remain silent and told the Police about another crime. The Budget. Ed spoke for so long about the Budget that the police let him go without questioning him about the red door at number 10.

The police took samples of the paint on the door, and the paint in Ed's paint pot. They were both sent away for forensic examination.

After David Cameron got over the shock and horror of the situation he eventually began to see the funny side. He is now said to be quite amused by the whole situation. It gave him an opportunity to say a line from one of his favourite songs to his painter and decorator. That Line was: I see a Red door, and I want it painted black"

The door was restored to its original colour and an extra guard was placed on duty outside 10 Downing Street to make sure it didn't happen again.
