No-deal saves Brexit suicide plan from accidental death

Theresa ‘Mayday! Mayday!’ May has suffered an inevitable, yet predictable, loss of her Brexit withdrawal bill.

“We want Britain’s economic apocalypse to have a timetable,” said a Tory spokesman wearing a tartan noose and a T-shirt saying ‘Not Waving, Jumping’.

“We mustn’t commit suicide without a plan. Someone might get hurt.”

Pundits gauge Britain’s chances of survival as somewhere between zero and a believable love song by Oasis.

The future of Britain is now in Germany’s hands. Again.

Godliness next to right wing nuttiness

Former obsessively-moderate Deputy PM Julie “What Women Problem?” Bishop is being replaced by Celia Hammond, the former moderately obsessive vice-chancellor of Notre Dame University.

Professor Hammond has previously expressed ideas on abortion and gay marriage that could be politely described it as ‘conservative’, ‘hyper-conservative’ and ‘cheque, please!’

“We are digging our way out of the right-wing hole,” said a government insider embarrassingly close to the situation.

Professor Hammond, a staunch, no-raunch Catholic, has previously described the Rainbow Flag as divisive and politically charged, according to The Australian newspaper.

Professor Hammond was concerned students may be “threatened and/or confused” by the rainbow symbol.

Surprisingly, Almighty God continues to baffle students by occasionally filling the sky with rainbows.

Re-Joyce!

The latest Barnaby ‘Baby Bump’ Joyce crisis-what-crisis is another blow-suck-blow to Last PM Standing Scott Morrison’s Newspoll numbers.

They are falling faster than a sugar-daddy’s stubbies.

The furore/kerfuffle/blip follows Barnaby Joyce’s declaration at the weekend that he was Australia’s “elected deputy prime minister”.

Despite the fact this is an accurate fact, other Nationals have subtly urged him to “just shut up”.

A Nationals MP in a toga said: “Barnaby should know that being elected as leader has nothing to do with remaining a leader. Being elected as leader is a sure-fire path to the backbench.”

A Nationals insider mixing cocktails in a sauna agreed.

“Look at former Prime Ministers Whatsisname, Thingummy, Whosit and Whatchmicallit.

“If ScoMotion wants to stay prime minister, he should start undermining his own leadership, gather the numbers and topple himself by surprise.

“And Barnaby should do the same, though I think we’d all agree he’s sheep-drenched the element of surprise.”
