BARRY Chuckle has taken a shock three-point lead in the run-up to the general election.
Although the wiry Chuckle sibling is not currently running for office, a YouGov poll showed that he was considered ‘most trustworthy’ on issues such as the economy, education and manoeuvring bulky objects through doorways.
Labour and Conservatives have already suggested they would consider a coalition with Barry Chuckle on the understanding that his panto work did not interfere with the duties of deputy prime minister.
Chuckle’s popularity with the voters has caused a rift with his brother Paul, who studied Political Science at Cambridge and has worked in an advisory capacity for a number of left-wing think tanks.
Meanwhile Channel 4 has commissioned a speculative docudrama titled The First 100 Days Of Chuckle which shows Barry accidentally covering Angela Merkel in paint during an EU summit and getting his head stuck in the Speaker’s Chair during the state opening of parliament.
Barry Chuckle said: “I’ve seen the projected borrowing figures for the next three years set against expected trade growth. Oh dear, oh dear.”
