London Freed from Tyranny, Bush Statue Toppled By Scott Ott
Citizens of London streamed into the streets, filling the air with cheers and celebratory gunfire as a crowd toppled a statue of the infamous tyrant George Bush.
The exuberant mob gave vent to the long suppressed hopes of a people who had suffered for almost three years without freedom under the iron fist of Mr. Bush and his puppet, British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
“I can now speak freely,” said one Londoner through tears. “It is like a great darkness has been lifted from us.”
The search now begins for the British torture chambers and mass graves which the Bush-Blair regime kept full during their reign of terror. The hunt is also on for the two despots who were last seen entering Mr. Blair’s underground bunker at No. 10 Downing Street.
And while leaders in the jubilant crowd called for the immediate institution of democracy in England, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan urged caution.
“We welcome the fall of these tyrants,” said Mr. Annan, “but it is a well-known fact that English-speaking peoples are not advanced enough to rule themselves.”
