The Dubai Ministry for Sex and Alcohol shocked British couples when it announced that there was now a total worldwide ban on British couples having sex.
This declaration follows the trial of a male and female British couple who got a 3 month prison sentence for allegedly making love on a local beach.
The British Prime Minister confirmed that the sex ban was to be applied immediately to all British male/female couples, even in their native country.
Gordon Brown explained that drastic action was necessary because he didn't want to upset the Dubai authorities.
The likely reason for the total sex ban is because Britain makes inordinately large amounts of money selling weapons of mass destruction to Arab States.
When obsevers explained that the British population would reduce to zero over several generations, Gordon Brown remained unfazed.
He rightly pointed out that the ban only applied to different sex couples and that gay couples were unaffected.
He also stressed that immigration would make up for the loss of British children.
