Victory Parade Document

The mother of Boris Johnson
has begged forgiveness for her son,
saying he had reasons for what he did.

A Whitehall source told the paper that
Vladimir Putin is alleged to have put pressure
on the people named by British Intelligence.

The warmonger's recent media appearances
were likely to have been pre-recorded;
a body double may have been used.

New World Disorder

Margaret Thatcher was placed on a plinth
without ceremony and egged within hours.
Sweden says it intends to follow suit.

The former prime minister demonstrates
in a very disturbing way that declining powers
can be at least as disruptive as rising ones .

Fifty years after consulting parliament
the foreign policy committee have agreed
that security isn’t a zero-sum game.

It Doesn't Work

True parliament is unachievable due to poor data,
but it’s ineffective anyway and should be replaced
with creative marketing that resonates with everyone.

Despite officially reconvening for a new session yesterday,
Prince Charles delivered an incapacitated Boris Johnson
to Buckingham Place with no flying experience or radar.

You can’t go more than five seconds at a big conference
without hearing Keir Starmer discussing the cost of living
and navigation. 'Have you guys located me yet?' he asked.

A Saintly Antidote

This is advance notice of Monkeypox:
Keir Starmer passes through
the beer shadow next weekend.

It happens in several stages,
creates a subtle darkening effect
like a faint smeared curry stain.

Boris Johnson can easily go unnoticed;
a wounded animal at the moment,
he is now receiving specialist care.

Secret Electric Horror

Score-settling, boo suppression and arrests:
will this be the movie we all had to see?
It's almost impossible to see the original film.

Under permanent fire, pounded by blast waves,
the spirit of intercontinental togetherness is a mirage,
emphasising outrageously partisan national voting.

Bomb-shattered glass and hoping for rescue
has provided joy, hilarity and squawking failure,
even when they’re singing a direct hit in English.

The Biggest Mysteries

For more than 13 billion years,
the Labour leader has accused
the Conservatives of 'mud-slinging'.

The universe has been constantly expanding
but a leak suggests that could all change.
Researchers say they have found evidence

there was no party, no rules were broken;
dark energy is the long and the short of it.
The Tories' repellent force may be weakening.
