John Cleese: ‘Syria and Alert to threats in Europe’


21st Century Wire says… When this story was originally published there was speculation as to who the real author was, with most people saying that it was he of Monty Python fame. Based on the skilled prose, we’d have to agree with the mob on this one. A masterpiece nonetheless…

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Syria and have therefore raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.”
