JEREMY Corbyn and George Osborne are to share a constituency in a sitcom-style ‘odd couple’ scenario.
With both MPs’ constituencies due to be abolished, the Boundary Commission felt the best solution was for them to share an office and have frequent comic misunderstandings.
A spokesman said: “We envisage Jeremy and George sitting at desks in the same room, with administrative support provided by a long-suffering secretary who rolls her eyes a lot.
“This will save taxpayers’ money, allow them to exchange quips and compete for the affections of attractive female constituents visiting to complain about potholes, or, more likely, immigrants.
“Osborne will probably say things like ‘I’ll be spending the weekend at my estate’ and Jeremy will reply, ‘Aye, and not the sort with a bleedin’ burnt out police car in the middle!’”
Osborne said: “I’m not in favour of the arrangement because that dreadful little scruffbag Che Guevara will lower the tone of the whole constituency. What will the neighbouring MPs think?”
Corbyn added: “I’ve agreed to it on the strict understanding that romance doesn’t blossom between us like Michael Elphick and Angela Thorne in Three Up, Two Down.”
