In a shock statement targeted at the coalition the citizens of Lilliput have joined in with the row started by the Archbishop of Canterbury to voice their misgivings with David Cameron’s Big Society.
During a recent state visit to Lilliput the Prime Minister gave the island nation his assurance that he would “look after their interests” especially in relation to border conflict with neighbouring Blefescu.
A spokesman for the Lilliputians said, “We were initially very impressed with Mr. Cameron and his vision of the Big Society which we thought would work as a template for us. He came across to us as a giant of a man and we gave him honorary citizenship after he and NATO subdued the Blefescan fleet.”
Since then, in an attack by the King of Lilliput himself, the Prime Minister has been accused of doing a complete about turn. “We have observed him over NHS policies in his own land and suspected that he might do the same over the annexing of Blefescu to Lilliput. How right we were. Our nation is now in total turmoil. Big Society, my arse!”
Mr. Cameron said in his defence, “I simply refuse to be tied down by the Lilliputians and their unreasonable demands. In fact we are reviewing all of our foreign policies as a result of this. The previous government must have been blind to some of the issues that we, the coalition have inherited.”
Leader of the opposition, Ed Miliband said “The Big Society is a complete farce. It’s time the idea was scrapped before the Prime Minister embarks on any other fruitless missions either at home or in early 18th century diatribes.”
