Shadow cabinet downgraded to cupboard


In a shock move by the political credit ratings agencies, the Shadow Cabinet has now become the Shadow Cupboard. Now that Labour now longer has enough MPs ready to serve in it, said Moody & Poor’s, ‘we think that a smaller cupboard, perhaps the one under the sink where you keep scouring pads and washing up liquid, would be a more appropriate fit for the remaining members’.

The move follows desperate attempts by Labour to preserve their Shadow Cabinet status, including offering to fill the spaces in the cabinet with brandy and Scotch. However, whilst apparently tempted by the innovation, the agency declined the move, leaving Labour relegated to political minnows alongside that bloke who stands around in clown make-up at the counts for bye-elections, though their rating still remains some way above the Liberal Democrats.
