Student Left Takes A Joke
Breaking News: Yesterday at 4:35pm some student pals were hanging out, sipping on a hoppy beer and chatting about the political situation in Britain. Nothing unusual in that. However, as one of the students became a little bit bold with the golden hoppy ale in her belly, she suggested that John McDonnel might be genuinely “bat-shit-insane” and said some other funny things that were missed . Teviot fell silent with an audible hush, everyone knew that a student on the far left of politics was bound to have heard to the slight….
Seconds felt like minutes, as the whole Student Union awaited the over the top, horrified and unrelenting leftist response. However, it never came. In fact one well known trot even laughed, because who can’t acknowledge that a man who quotes from dictators who murdered millions isn’t a serious political figure?
A second joke was even made about how Corbyn, despite being a million times better than the alternative, had done gone and been very silly quite a lot since he became leader (#DavidCameronIsAPie). Silence fell on Teviot once more, but this time several leftists joined in the chuckling.
Ne’er have the halls of the Student Union been filled with such joy and mirth. Long may this new found sense of humour and merriment continue…..
