At some point during of the premiership of Gordon Brown, the following joke crossed my radar once or twice. You may yourselves have seen it.
In the spirit of recycling, I present it to you again. All I’ve changed is the names.
A driver is stuck in a traffic jam on the M25. Nothing is moving.
Suddenly a man knocks on the window. The driver rolls down his window and asks, ‘What’s going on?’
‘Terrorists down the road have hijacked a coach containing the Prime Minister David Cameron and his top aides Nick Clegg, George Osborne and Theresa May. They’re asking for a £10 million ransom. Otherwise they’re going to douse them with petrol and set them on fire.. We’re going from car to car, taking up a collection.
‘The driver asks, ‘How much is everyone giving, on average?
‘Well, most people are giving about a gallon.’
