130. The MP for Islingworth

The MP for Islingworth rose to her feet. She had prepared a scathing speech for the Prime Minister. The subject: his refusal to hold a Commons debate about what was clearly an inevitable path to war with Liechtenstein.

    Good setup and a great punchline.

  4. As Bruce says above, this made me laugh out loud!

    Brilliant. Completely unexpected.

  7. If that was what really went on in Parliament it’d be a sight more entertaining!

  8. A great way to begin a day and end a 12 hour shift – with laughter. Thank you.

    I’m impressed. 300 stories. Looks like one a day. You must have a fertile imagination. I can follow a theme for a novel. But 300 separate ideas. That’s a lot of thinking.

  10. This is just stating explicitly what politicians always seem to be telling each other implicitly …

    Freakin’ Awesome!

    LOL… Extremely clever little piece, well done!

  13. b00kreader says:

    Ha! I laughed out loud at this one.

    (Please read this in a whispered and anal-retentive font:) “then” in second paragraph s/b “than” and should third paragraph start with two “is”es?
