A spokesman for clowns said, " It should be noted that clowns have recently celebrated several successes in politics, notably in Italy and the election of Boris as Mayor of London."
He continued, "Oh sure most of us have white faces, but that is a cosmetic choice and not at all racist.".
Mr. Tumble, commented, "Yes we often put our big feet in it, and trip ourselves over, and yes the doors and wheels always fall off our cars, but we have never brought down our own aeroplane with one of our own banners!".
Pooter the clown, added, "We all have sensible faces and our clothing looks positively sober compared to the 'Mr. Toad' outfits worn by their leader".
But the final word went to Bozo who pointed out, "At least we all have sensible names, I mean, Nigel Farage, who's going to believe a name like that?".
