Tory MP feared drowned after falling off raft of clichés into Sea of Hyperbole
Emergency services today called off their search for Harvey Jackson MP who fell off the raft of clichés that he unveiled during his speech at last week’s Conservative Party conference and hasn’t been seen since.
Eyewitnesses say that Mr Jackson, 49, had started his journey in calm conditions, but his barnstorming speech whipped up wave after wave of enthusiasm among delegates until a veritable storm of pre-election frenzy flooded the entire arena. Reports suggest that for some minutes Mr Jackson comfortably surfed the crescendo, but quickly lost his footing and disappeared from view after turning towards the choppy waters of Europe.
David Cameron demonstrated that the party had learned from the tragedy by today putting on Wellington boots and a pair of Speedos to pay tribute to a man he described as ‘undoubtedly the greatest politician in history’.Click to send this story to a friend
