The number of scapegoats in their natural habitats around the Downing Street area of South West London has increased according to a Scapegoat Society survey.
'The recent release of several Westminster scapegoats into the wild has led to a big rise in their numbers,' the survey says.
The survey shows that the Bulgarian and Romanian scapegoat is currently the most seen followed closely by the migrant benefit tourist variety.
'Both these varieties are often the most numerous when the government needs to have someone to blame for the lack of jobs and housing,' the report says.
George Osborne is reported to be hunting for a scapegoat for the next time he messes up the budget.
