Stop Surrealist Interludes in Parliament!!!

"We noticed that Peter Done of the Untied Party has said that surrealism was creeping into the debate over the Employment Relations Bill. Now, there is good surrealism and bad surrealism."

"Good surrealism is Andre Breton's "Spanking Madonna", which has the Virgin Mary spanking the Baby Jesus for manifesting himself all over the carpet. The Corrective Party views this as an image of religious devotion."

"Bad surrealism involves unseemly spontaneous mutations into things that should not be there. For example, our reputation as a mad cow free zone could be under attack if the Royal Commission on Genetic Modification does not recognise that Margaret Thatcher and the BSE virus are closely connected. Do we really want a rampage of steely-haired iron matrons stalking the countryside with their handbags, or the damage that would result from such sudden acts of mutation? Or the fact that a hitherto unknown Simpson, D'oh!ver, somehow disguised himself as a Laboured MP, and got elected to Parliament?!!!"

"The Correctives want an end to this naughty version of surrealism!!!" exclaimed Sister Psychotica, Mistress Superior of the Corrective Party
