In a shocking development yesterday, aides to Prime Minister Gordon “Scrooge Mc Duck” Brown released a video onto the youtubes admitting that the government does, in fact, have a sense of humor. And a good one at that. Full video after the jump.
About a year ago someone came up with a petition to install Jeremy Clarkson as Prime Minister. Rather amusingly, when questioned about this veteran motoring journalist Clarkson, the outspoken host of BBC’s Top Gear who has garnered a cult following all his own, stated that he would make a “rubbish Prime Minister” and that “the government should build park benches and that is it. They should leave us alone.”
I filled out the petition aeons ago and forgot all about it, until I received an email from No. 10 yesterday stating:
“You signed a petition asking the Prime Minister to “Make Jeremy Clarkson Prime Minister.”
The Prime Minister’s Office has responded to that petition and you can view it here:”
Here is the offical Downing street response to that petition:Vodpod videos no longer available.
Rather predictably, the Tory party used this as an excuse to demonstrate flawlessly that, unlike the current incumbent Government, they have absolutely no sense of hunor at all, stating:
“While the British public is having to tighten its belts, the government is spending taxpayers’ money on a completely frivolous project.”
“This shows how detached the Labour Party has become from the concerns of the British people.”
To which a Downing Street spokesman replied that the film had been made by someone in a spare half hour and had cost nothing to make.
Seems to me that the Tories are the ones out of touch with the realities of modern life…making a youtube video that involves filming a Downing Street staircase and the door requires spending money? Jeez. Go back to sleep.
