Hollywood Terminator turned Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is understood to have been offering to help end the stalemate that's paralyzing British politics, following Thursday's inconclusive result at the polls.
Schwarzenegger, a well known supporter of the Right and who 'tweeted' a 'well done' message to the Conservatives seconds after 10pm on Thursday night before any results had been declared, is said to be sriously embarassed about having been made to look such a fool. A close aide confirmed that "Governor Schwarzenegger wants the situation cleared up as soon as possible to restore some kind of respect for himself and his administration, and to wipe the egg off his face, if you will."
It's understood that the former tough-guy has been in touch with David Cameron again offering him some advice; although whether or not Mr Cameron feels he can "Kick some ass", by entering the talks, stripped to the waist, toting a flame-thrower and hurling grenades at his opposition remains to be seen.
He told the press earlier. "Well of course Governor Schwarzenegger and I share common political goals, but just let's say that his methods are perhaps a tad more prescriptive than what I'd care for. However the one thing that he and I do have in common is that when I last spoke to Nick Clegg I did say I'll be back"
Mr Cameron was then bundled into a waiting car by William Hague, who was laughing so much at his leader's joke, that several of the media scrum dialed 999 fearing that he was going to self-combust imminently.
