Britain’s ‘Yellow Streak’ protesters have continued another day of rioting in the Houses of Parliament.
Many are furious at the new demands that have been imposed on them.
‘This isn’t why I got involved in politics at all,’ said one Prime Minister, who begged to remain anonymous.
It’s thought that the root of the dispute is that the Yellow Streaks are being asked to undertake democratic duties. The edict comes not from their immediate managers at the Houses of Parliament, who are generally considered to be on their side. For years the two have worked hand in hand to agree on everything from expenses to rule waiving. However, in recent years, the holding company for the Houses of Parliament, Great Unwashed Public, has begun to pay closer attention to the workings of MPs.
Recently, in an extraordinary ungenial meeting, the Great Unwashed held a secret ballot about their happiness with a key tenet of the democratic process.
Despite strenuous efforts by the BBC, the EU and several powerful global media organisations to sway the vote, the so-called Referendum went badly for the Democracy Deniers.
They were instructed to withdraw from the European Community, which was considered one of the major perks of a career in politics.
A job within the EU was known internally as a UN3 (unearned deference, untaxed pay, and unscrutinised activity).
However, the edict from the Great Unwashed Management put them in direct conflict with British MPs.
They have been registering their displeasure by erecting a series of obstructions on the main route to democracy.
One well-nourished individual with officer worker’s hands was seen holding a mace for several seconds, before he got tired and had to put it back again.
The leader of the democracy deniers, Theresa May – chief of the faction called Continuity Remainiacs – has gone into hiding in Europe in an attempt to buy time.
‘There are two chances of the Great Unwashed Public getting a say in the running of their country,’ said one Yellow Streak protester. ‘May do. And No can do. And May do ain’t in town at the moment.’
