There was shock today as David Cameron executed the biggest political shake-up of modern times by sacking the entire Cabinet and replacing them with members of his own family.
“While me and the former Cabinet made lots of hilarious gaffs and got into wacky scrapes I was aware that the British public didn’t seem to have warmed to us,” explained the Prime Minister at a press conference earlier this morning. “Then I saw that Mrs Brown’s Boys topped the Christmas Day television ratings and I instantly knew what needed to be done. People love Mrs Brown because Brendan O’Carroll filled the cast with his family which creates a unique atmosphere so I thought I’d do the same and soon we’ll be national treasures too.”
This change has created the most age diverse Cabinet in history as the age range goes from the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Cameron’s two year old daughter Florence, to his mother, Mary, the newly minted Secretary of State for Scotland who is seventy-nine. Surprisingly, the new cabinet is also much more socially diverse than the Cameron Cabinet of yesterday as there are now more woman, less Etonians and only eighty percent of them were educated at public school and then Oxbridge. Though this will change if the Tories win the next election when some of the youngest members of the Cabinet start big school.
Asked if he was also going to start dragging up like Brendan O’Carroll does in his role as Agnes Brown, Cameron looked a little shifty, muttered something about “only at weekends” then quickly brought the press conference to a close.
