GADAFFI FLEES TO COSTA DEL FAILED DESPOT by Wrinkled Weasel
Tonight sources in the small island on the South Coast of the UK (teletext) have claimed that the Libyan Leader and camping enthusiast has moved his tent and cadre of highly trained pneumatic guardswomen to the Isle of Wight. Speaking from Newport a speaker said that the Colonel will be accomodated at Carisbroke Castle, scene of King Charles the First's exile. Meanwhile, the Intenational Community have condemned the move, declaring that the Isle of Wight has become a haven for "Despots, brigands and Jet Harris, formerly of The Shadows". Local residents are known to have mixed feelings. "Well he seems like a nice chap, but the erection of tents and portaloos is strictly controlled on the Island after the trouble we had with hippies and Robert Stigwood", said a local, "And this time of year he risks the danger of getting his assets frozen".
