Hilary Benn Axed In Cabinet Shake Up

Hilary Benn has today sensationally been axed from his role as Rural Affairs Secretary. Benn will be replaced by children's cartoon character and all-round good egg Mr Benn. "It will save a lot of mucking about as we've just had a load of new stationary printed," said Prime Minister Gordon McBroon.

"Mr Benn is a fearless, mild-mannered sort of a chap who loves dressing up. Exactly the sort of young spunker we need to sort the job out," added McBroon.

The Prime Minister refused to confirm press reports that new Food and Farming Minister, Jane Kennedy will also be axed and replaced with Game For A Laugh's Sarah Kennedy.
