In a surprise announcement to the House of Commons this afternoon, Geoff Hoon, the Defence Secretary, told MPs today that 850 British troops will redeploy from Basra to Eurodisney. Outlining a dramatic change in UK military strategy, Hoon pointed out that he had new intelligence indicating that things could get a bit hairy round Baghdad and he now had it on very good authority that the Sunni triangle was NOT a musical instrument. In recognition of this, and in order to accommodate the wail from the British media, Hoon explained that the Black Watch (Soon to be renamed the "Rainbow Watch") will be trained as crack aromatherapists and sent in to administer smelling salts to any distressed Parisians. Joininng the Army is not about fighting - it's about feelings, a contrite Hoon observed.
