After last Sunday’s sell-out success by Monty Python, the Liberal Democrats have announced that before they get annihilated in the general election they too are going to say goodbye to fans with a show at the O₂.
“Critics are saying that it will be embarrassing and that we are simply not up to performing at this level,” said Nick Clegg at a press conference today. “But we intend to put on a hell of a show. Vince Cable is practising his dancing, and Danny Alexander can’t wait to drag-up as an hugely unconvincing member of the Cabinet and talk nonsense in a stupid voice once again.”
While there will be some new material Clegg was quick reassure anyone buying a ticket that most of what they see will be utterly predictable.
“We’ll be performing all the old hits,” he confirmed. “The Post Office is Safe in Our Hands, We Believe in Social Mobility and Equal Opportunity and, of course, the all-time classic We Are Opposed to Tuition Fees. This will be a chance for people to see us in action one last time and have a bloody good laugh.”
