The moment has been prepared for...

The country is agog with the news is that Britain's leading unrealistic fantasy series, Our Government, has undergone a complete recasting, in the hope of coaxing back some of its lost fans. Publicists claim that the new leading man will be playing it dour and enigmatic, and keeping his original Scottish accent.

Critics, however, have been quick to condemn the appointment of Alistair Darling in the sidekick role of The Chancellor as a cheap attempt to create some sexual tension by having Gordon address him as "Darling" all the time.

Meanwhile, the hardcore New Labour fangirls are up in arms, fearing that the revamped show will be unable to recreate the chemistry of Blair/Brown shipping, and are all busy writing Brownsday fix-it fic, in which Tony makes a miraculous comeback from the parallel universe where he has been stranded and promises Gordon that they can be together forever and have lots of exciting policies of their very own.

The production team denied speculation that viewers will switch to the other side, saying: "Who gives a toss about David Cameron and a bunch of dinosaurs anyway?"
