Deputy Dawg announced today he will resign his post, pending the outcome of charges against him. In his trademark “hillbilly” redneck accent, Mr Dawg told reporters: “I fervently deny all the allegations made by the parliamentary group known as the ' varmints', that is to say Muskie Muskrat, Moley Mole, Possible Possum and Ty Coon.
Mr Dawg continued: "We have to conclude that the place where we do our business is truly a dog-eat-dog world. Nevertheless I fully intend to clear my name through the due process of British justice. It is those who perjure themselves who will eventually find themselves in the traditional Jailhouse at the end of this sorry episode. They have shown by their actions and allegations that they are no better than animals. Judicial protocol prevents me from elaborating on my defence, but every dog will have his day, and I look forward to seeing them in court. THey can expect nothing more than ruff justice. A hirk.”
The allegations come after a period of significant unrest in Mr Dawg’s constituency, with the alleged murder at gunpoint of his senior colleague, and the admission by a Mr Clapton that he fired a single shot and “left it at that.”
Meanwhile, it is expected that Mutley from Wacky Races will take over Mr Dawg’s former position, despite recovering from a long term chest condition, leaving what one expert, Huckleberry Hound, called “an attractive opening” for Scoobey Doo.
