  • Clegg regrets his choice of new cabinet minister as he lets rip a massive fart in celebration of his new post.

  • Nick couldn’t help but grin as his patented knuckle-crusher handshake caught yet another victim unawares.

  • Tony Dawson 4th Feb '12 - 5:57pm

    Is this where the hand-wringing finally stops?

  • “That’s it then, my masterstroke – now we’ve got you, our own ED in the cabinet!”

  • Following Chris Huhne’s precedent, Emily Davey accepts the post of Energy Secretary.

  • Ed Maxfield 4th Feb '12 - 9:25pm

    Ooh, that’s the spot, Nick, right there between the shoulder blades.

  • Ed Davey: “Ouch! Does that mean you’re 33rd degree?”

  • Nick…”Well done Ed; you won on points”

  • Nick’s new joke shop venture was going well; another satisfied customer had the handshake buzzer demonstrated.

  • Nick,,,,,,” Welcome to the ‘big league’ Ed, just remember, here, three points is a loss…..

  • “Congratulations on your win”, says Nick, “I’ve never seen anyone eat so many pies in one sitting”

  • Will Barter 5th Feb '12 - 11:38am

    “Remember Ed – Points do not mean prizes.”

  • OK – thanks, Nick. You can stop twisting my arm – NOW please!

  • or, better rephrased, “Congratulations on your win”, says Nick, “at £10 per pie you’ve just raised hundreds of pounds for charity”

  • “…..and so Ed, tell me, does your wife drive?”
