In a surprise move, PM David Cameron has appointed Bernard Madoff party treasurer to replace Peter Cruddas. "I haven't met Mr Madoff personally, but Jonathan Aitken shared a cell with him and he assures me he's a jolly nice chap and as honest as the day is long.", said Mr Cameron in a statement. We understand that Madoff will be working mainly at night.

Cant help but think there is a Jeffery Archer reference lurking to out (pardon the pun) there!
Nice - does this need a bit of expansion to NiB length?
I wondered about having Archer and Aitken as Madoff references; perhaps it should be something like:
"I bumped into a good bloke called Jonathan Aitken,who said he once shared rooms in Belmarsh college with a chap called Bernard Madoff. Jonathan assured me that Bernard's a good bloke, but I'm not daft, so I asked Jeffery Archer - he's a good bloke I met over dinner once and he told me that Madoff was his co-pilot on the space shuttle a couple of times; you can't get to fly one of those without being a good bloke, so I was sold."
At first glance I thought it read 'Cameron appoints Baader Meinhoff...'
