On the day the BBC revealed that it was scrapping the flagship show for geeky, nerds who never leave the house, Robot Wars, Boris Johnson has told the Andrew Marr Programme that the government intends to use the House Robots to fight the enemy in Syria.
Mr Johnson explained that the attacks would be led by Sergeant Bash, Shunt and Dead Metal, with Mathilda, the Matriarch of Mayhem, adding a more caring, supportive side to the fleet, while at the same time goring the enemy with her pneumatic tusks. Sir Killalot, who was recently knighted in the January Honours List, will provide tactical and moral support.
If successful, added Mr Johnson, other killer robots will be added to the fleet. These include the terrifying Beano, Bojo, The Blonde Bombshell and WiffWaff.
