Trouble is looming for Britain's Big three broadcasters as it's rumoured they are set to file for bankruptcy following the fuel costs all three have incurred over recent days.
A Spokesman for BBC, ITV and Sky said, "I don't think any of us appreciated the costs of having helicopters circling Westminster showing endless shots Big Ben, The London Eye, Buckingham Palace and the Houses of parliament for 3 days solid. However the fuel bills have been presented and it looks like we'll all have to stop broadcasting after this weekend. Certainly the future of flagship programmes like The One Show, Coronation St and Britain's Top Mingers looks to be shaky."
Survival hopes now rest with a deputation from the broadcasters who will meet with the new Culture & Media Secretary and request a government bail-out; in much the same way as the banks were helped over the past two years. However it doesn't look good as a coalition source commented. "Haven't any of them heard of Google Earth for God's sake? What's wrong with stills? We don't need to see moving pictures all the time. The man in the street is not totally thick! Just tell him, he'll understand."
Satellite broadcaster, GOLD, looks set to fill the vacuum left should the plug be pulled, and has revealed plans to broadcast Only Fools and Horses on every available channel, 24 hours a day from Monday onwards. They released the following statement. "Lavvley jabbley my son!"
