Don't suppose you could invite Gaddafi? BP asks Kate
BP has asked Prince William and Kate Middleton if there is any chance
they could invite Colonel Gaddafi to their wedding in April.
The oil giant hopes the Libyan leader can be squeezed in beside the King
of Bahrain or, if space is tight, he could even just come to the
evening reception ‘for a drink and a boogie’.
BP head of corporate affairs and former MP for Sedgefield, Tony Blair,
said Gaddafi was fine with the no-kids rule but he is lactose intolerant, doesn’t eat fish and he’s a psychopath.
Blair added: “He doesn’t mean to be a pain but if he has dairy products
his face swells up and he gets this really nasty rash under his arms.
“If you could ditch the cheese course and replace the chocolate mousse with honey-glazed pears that would be brilliant.
“Also, if anyone says anything he doesn’t like he will shoot them right
in the face, so if you can put him on a table with people he knows that should
prevent a horrifying bloodbath.
“The last thing you want is Colonel Gaddafi sat next to some marketing arsehole asking him what he does.”
A spokesman for Clarence House said: “If we invite Colonel Gaddafi then
we have to invite Brian and Susan and if we invite Brian and Susan then
Gemma has to come and before you know it you’ve invited Robert
Mugabe, Kim Jong-il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. And we really don’t want to
Across Britain opinion was divided with some insisting realpolitik
required Britain to invite Gaddafi while others said what in the name of
the fuck is wrong with you, he’s a murdering psychopath and if some
people at BP lose their jobs they can always spend a couple of years
working out whether unemployment is better or worse than being machined
gunned in the head.
Helen Archer, from Stevenage, added: “While he does seem thoroughly unpleasant, they have invited David and Victoria Beckham.”
