Prime Minister David Cameron has today been in talks with Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy in an attempt to diffuse tensions between the two countries over control of Bongonbongoland.
Spain is now claiming that the previously inconspicuous British territory is rightfully theirs due its proximity to Spain, and Spanish border officials have been causing severe delays to anyone attempting to cross the border with Bongobongoland by carrying out lengthy checks on vehicles. In addition they have been charging a 50 Euro (100 Bongoese Pound) fee, and have also been threatening to investigate the tax affairs of any Bongobongolander living or working in Spain.
'It's completely unacceptable' blustered Cameron, 'and I've told Mr Rajoy as much. I'm hopeful that we can reach a resolution quickly so that we can all go back to not ever having heard of Bongobongoland.'
However, the matter seems unlikely to be resolved anytime soon, as Argentinean President Cristina Kirchner has also waded into the debate, claiming that Bongobongoland was stolen from Argentina by British settlers and is rightfully theirs. 'I can see no reason why the British Government won't enter into talks with us over the future of Bongobongoland' she announced. 'I've asked the UN to recognise our claim to the area that we know as Malvinovinoland, and I'm seeking the support of our fellow South American states, the Pope and any Americans stupid enough to get involved.'
David Cameron reacted angrily however, stating 'What she fails to realise is that the people of Bongobongland have confirmed their desire to remain a British territory in a recent referendum. We recognise their right to self-determination and so should she.' UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom disagreed however, saying 'if we can get the Argies or the Dagos to pay for Bongobongoland, let 'em, that's what I say. And I apologise now if those phrases are by any chance found offensive by anybody.'
