Mayor Ken's secret plans for London!

Written by: Niloc Published on: 14 Nov 2000

Over the past few weeks Britain has been plagued by railway crisis and storms of terrifying intensity. However, DFTFC can now reveal the incredible plot that this chaos is being used to cover up. The separation of London form the rest of the United Kingdom! We have uncovered important documentation that shows the entire plan.

Since the new mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, came to power he has been constantly driving new policies that have separated London further from the outside world. This began with congestion charges on the roads - a subtle encouragement to ensure people stayed out.

However this did not do enough so Ken secretly organised lorry drivers to block the road entrances to London hidden under the banner of so called “fuel protests”.

These events were only the beginning stages of his master plan, as we discovered he has now moved to phase 2. By employing a crack team of saboteurs known simply by the mysterious codename Railtrack Ken has managed to cripple every rail-link into London! Then using his influence as London mayor to ensure that these same saboteurs have been given the job of fixing the broken tracks. The masterminded brilliance is clear to see.

Finally the true scale of his plans only became clear last week. With excessive flooding reported all over the nation we saw parts of the M25 ring road closed due to flooding. However,

this flooding was not from rain but secret reservoirs built under the motorway. The claim of flooding due to rain was a cunning lie to fool the public so the truth remains hidden. DFTFC have discovered that last weeks flood was only a test to ensure the system works. Ken has been planting massive reservoirs under the entire M25 and when the time comes he will be able to release all of that water and flood the entire road turning it into a giant moat! With this extra line of defence he will be able to keep out the rest of Britain and rule London independently as a new country!

Obviously this is all in good humour if you don't think so then you don't have "good humour". This is of course only a sarcastic sceptical FICTITIOUS (yes thats right it's not real! - It's actually made up! - Welcome to the world of satire), view on life the universe and everyone in the public light... hey it's all supposed to be good fun... honest :)
