Oh boo hoo hoo. Poor ickle Tony Wony can’t stand up for himsewf. He’s had to get the big boys to protect him.
See, that nasty Conservative Michael Howard has been picking on Tony coz Tony’s fallen in with a bad crowd. They made him tell lies and got him involved in a fight he shouldn’t have gotten into, and Michael’s been telling everyone about it.
But George says Michael’s being mean. So George got his friend Karl to tell Michael that he can’t come over to their big white house to play. Karl was vewy angry. Karl threw his toys out of the pram.
But the funny thing is, it’s Michael’s job to be mean to Tony, especially when Tony has been telling fibs. See, Michael is the leader of the opposition. He’s meant to oppose when he thinks Tony’s been naughty.
And you would think that trying to fiddle with the democratic process in the country that’s meant to be your best friend is a dumb thing to do. Especially when the person being leant on is supposed to be a natural political ally.
But Michael is an old fashioned conservative, beloved of grumpy old men and ladies. He’s not a neoconservative nutjob, and that means George and his buddies don’t have to be friends with him anymore. Michael’s tried hard not to cry.
Of course Karl and George accidentally made Michael more popular, because British people, on the whole, don’t like George very much.
But nobody ever accused this White House of being too smart.
