The Business Secretary, Vince Cable, today declared that he had got 'a very good deal' by selling his Rolls Royce for £10.
'I saw the advert on the telly,' he explained, 'you know, the one with people floating around on balloons. And they said that it was better than part exing, whatever that is. So I rang them and 5 seconds later a gentleman called Mr Goldman Sachs appeared on my doorstep. He said that £10 for my old car was very good value, so of course I took his word for it, as I am a gentleman too.
'Unfortunately, my wife called me a senile old sod who hadn't got the sense I was born with, but I told her that I stand my my decision. And anyway, I enjoy sleeping in the shed.'
