Party activist found in Japanese Jungle, unaware Labour have lost next election
Japanese returning officers on a routine trip to a remote jungle island hve discovered a surviving Labour activist, cut off from civilisation but continuing to ‘canvas’. Geoffrey Richardson was found placing ‘Vote Labour’ posters on trees and asking the voting intentions of passing lemurs, apparantly unaware of news that Labour has long since lost the next election.
Mr Richardson, formerly an Allied Carpets store manager from Sunderland, at first refused to believe the reports of Labour’s catastrophic loss, allegedly repeating ‘And how is the nice Mr Campbell doing?’
When presented with press cuttings and transcripts of recent speeches from Gordon Brown, lifelong Labour supporter Mr Richardson immediately surrendered his principles to the officers, handing over a late postal vote for UKIP for them to deliver.Click to send this story to a friend
