The Foreign Office is still trying to work out how to bring home thousands of journalists in Libya who had gone there to report on the hundreds of people trapped there.
The Foreign Secretary said (his words have been translated from the original Yorkshire) 'That John Simpson and as many spongers as could get away with it from the news channels and the papers headed to Libya hoping to film people who couldn't get out of the place, and bring stories of tragedies and, with any luck, death. Unfortunately, the dozy gits didn't realise that they couldn't get out either.
'So now we've spent millions getting the ordinary people out with the few men that are left in the army and airforce after Cameron's got rid of them don't put that bit in, and we're left with a desert full of blokes with tons of camera equipment and computers all filing reports as if their lives depended on it. Which they do, because with the price of petrol going up, and Cameron slashing away at armed forces numbers like Errol Flynn in Robin Hood don't put that bit in either, we can't afford any more rescue operations until next year at the earliest, and even then it'll probably be Corporal Clott and a Jeep.
'I'm sure our brave reporters can find enough of their own human tragedies to report on in the mean time. And by the time we get to them, with any luck they'll have eaten each other.'
