Yoko Ono jetted into Cairo yesterday to bring peace to the beleaguered city. On arrival she was whisked to the Four Seasons hotel and immediately climbed into bed in the Royal Suite, where she intends to remain with her retinue until peace is restored.
At a press conference this morning the conceptual artist and widow of Beatle John Lennon said, “I’m going to stay here for as long it takes, I don’t care who wins I just want to give peace a chance”. Propped up on a pile of pillows and wearing her trademark sunglasses, she denied rumours that a bed was being prepared for her in Tahrir Square, the scene of some the most violent protests, “John and I stopped the Vietnam war from a bed Amsterdam Hilton, so I know it works, plus I couldn’t function without air conditioning in this heat”.
Ousted president of Egypt, Mohamed Morsi, reacted positively to the news of the Bed in, “You may say I'm a dreamer, but it worked last time and it's good to know that Yoko's on my side”
