Gordon Brown's government have decided to rename the terrorist group "Taliban" to the friendlier sounding "Moderate Taliban".
This is a major step forward in the government's policy of downgrading difficult situations with a more user friendly wording thereby enabling talks between terrorist organisations and the British Government to take place.
Gordon Brown told a small gathering of loyal supporters.
"I don't know why I hadn't thought of it before; it's such a brilliant idea".
It is now thought that renaming in other areas could be on the cards, assaults to "Mild assaults" along with burglary to "Placid burglary" could help free up the prisons for more important offenders.
The global war on terrorism will undoubtedly benefit from the British Governments fresh approach, Mr Brown went on to say.
"Once the newly named Moderate Taliban lean of there new found standing they will almost certainly change their ways and start to behave themselves".
Mr Brown was then asked to elaborate on the art of "renaming" but his summer holidays meant that he had to be elsewhere, he left the room waving and smiling.
The government return on the 12th of October when it is hoped terrorism will be a thing of the past.
