Lib Dem MPs to form rural puppet theatre company

THE remaining Liberal Democrat MPs are to tour the country in a people carrier re-engaging voters via a hard-hitting puppet show.

Since resigning as party leader, Nick Clegg has already started writing the show under the working title of Vince Cable and Danny Alexander Are Dead.

The marionette-based play will tour village halls, post offices and launderettes throughout the UK for the next five years.

Clegg said: “Now that all of the Liberal Democrat’s elected representatives can fit neatly into a Mazda Bongo, the time is ripe to take to the road and commune with the ordinary people of Britain via politically-charged puppetry.

“Mark Williams has started constructing the set out of an old bed sheet and a torch, whilst Norman Lamb and Tim Farron are composing a haunting score for recorder and kazoo.

“The other four will mainly be coming along to pad out the audiences and make cups of tea.”
