New York: New Sky Line Imminent

President George W Bush has, sensationally, revealed today that New York Harbour's Statue of Liberty is to be overhauled in a radical foreign relations endeavour.

American foreign policy has been under criticism for many decades now. Having stumbled through bungled efforts in Vietnam, Cuba, Iraq and feeling the chill of the Cold War, the president has decided to make a, somewhat different, gesture to Russia.

"The Rushkins are the only folks who haven't pissed us off for a few years now... that's what my dad says anyhow and I agree with him" began Bush in an address to Congress this morning.

In a remarkable piece of lateral thinking, the USA's premier has decided to replace the famous statue- a gift of international friendship from the people of France donated on October 28th 1886- with the figure of famous Russian drug dealer Victor Ivanov.

The Spoof's French correspondent, Pierre Charriez gave us an account of the French administration's feeling following the news:

"Nous voulons notre dos de statue. Nous ne parlons encore jamais en Amérique ou venons pour le dîner chez le White House".

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