Prime Minister’s Questions ruined by Andrew Lloyd-Webber


Britain’s Parliament was thrown in to chaos yesterday when three opposition MPs, taking the opportunity of being caught on television, launched in to an impromptu application to join the next series of hit BBC 1 series  How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?

Conservative spokespersons Alan Duncan, George Osbourne and Oliver Letwin brought Prime Ministers Questions to a halt with an acapella rendition of “Hello, Dolly!” (pictured), before Sir Patrick Cormack produced a snare drum and led the trio in a performance of “The very model of a modern major general” from the Pirates of Penzance.

Rumours that Greg Barker was waiting behind the Speaker’s chair dressed in fishnet stockings rehearsing “And all that jazz” from Chicago, could not be confirmed.

    Oh Fosse Fosse Fosse all the way.

  • I find the reference to ‘fishnet stockings’ nasty and in poor taste.
    It discredits you, and may prompt you to look in your own back yard before making such jibes.

  • Oh, do get a sense of humour 🙂 It wasn’t intended to be at all nasty, and in fairness the chap on the front of the Mail today is quite fit.
