    Will David Cameron Defect to UKIP?

    Or another example of wacky news stories are those hilarious Immigrant rants that the Mail On Sunday comes out with,

    The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom had weathered a truly awful day. Everyone had thrown awkward questions at him and probed for answers they knew he couldn't and wouldn't give, and they kept it up for the entire day.
    It was entirely too much.
    He made his way to the large desk dominating the central room within No. 10 sat in his well appointed leather chair, and opened the lowermost and smallest of the drawers within which sat a small unmarked wooden box with a simple bronze clasp.
    David stared into the drawer for a moment before reaching down to retrieve the box and place it on the desk.
    Again there was a moment of inaction, of indesicion as he wrestled with the problem before him.
    "No. I can't." he muttered to himself "There's only one left."

    There was silence and stillness for a good five minutes before David slowly reached forward and undid the clasp, opening the box to reveal a bundle of crumpled tissue paper within which was a very old looking dessicated monkey paw.
    A paw which almost formed a tiny fist, except for a single gnarled finger extending from the knuckle.
    "Might as well get it over with then." the Prime Minister said sounding somewhat more determined as he reached into the box and grasped the ancient limb by the wrist.
    David closed his eyes and said to the paw
    "I want to do the one thing which will unite the entire political spectrum overnight."

    Almost immediately the final digit of the paw curled inwards and then remained still.
    The Prime Minister went to return the relic to it's box but as soon as he let it fall from his grasp, it turned to dust.
    "Well. I feel better now." David declared to himself, and set about tidying up before returning home for the evening with a smile on his face.

    This thread has languished a bit recently, hasn't it? So here's one:

    Public Enemy fan drives band to gig

    The story in brief: this guy went to meet the band at a record shop, but their taxis didn't wait and they asked if anyone had a car. He did, so took the band in his Ford Focus -- including a bit of headbanging to "Bohemian Rhapsody" in true Wayne's World style! :p

    Ex-England rugby international foils robbers with tea mug - BBC

    The moral of the story is: do not, under any circumstances, come between the English and their tea. You will regret it!
