Egypt V Egypt V Brit Holiday Makers

Funny story written by Backandtotheleft

Thursday, 4 July 2013

Back and to the Left news has prided itself on throwing it's reporters headlong into the world's most dangerous situations to bring you the real stories. Somewhere which is about as safe as a hyperactive kid waving a lighter around in a firework factory is Egypt.

The land which kicked off the Arab spring which replaced a swathe of tyrants and dictators all over the Middle East with new tyrants and dictators, is at it again. It's people seemingly pissed off at perceived injustices by the ruling party have once again taken to the streets to throw bricks though shop keepers windows. Egypt once again stands on the brink.

And the worst thing about the whole situation? Not the inevitable loss of life, limb and property. Not the sixty rapes that have taken place over the course of the riots and not the fact that we are yet to see one protester wearing a comedy fez hat. It is the fact that these inconsiderate Arabs have decided to have their pesky country wide revolution just before our summer holidays.

How do they sleep at night knowing that literally hundreds of middle class couples from Essex are having to cancel their five star all inclusive holidays? It is outrageous. Mrs Devo-Langly from "The South" (being Northerners it's hard to tell where people are from) said:

"I just don't believe the Egyptian's, this is the fifth time we were going to go on a holiday of a lifetime this year and now we have to change our plans. I mean I know social and political upheaval and change is important but why couldn't they wait until the end of September?"


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