Concern mounted about the Transport Secretary, Chris Grayling, after a reporter noticed that he hadn’t made a colossal cock-up in the last month.
The journalist, Ian Napton, broke the story ‘I was short of ideas the Sunday feature, and I did what I always do, went looking for details of Chris Grayling’s latest howler. There’s always one but this time there was nothing. I couldn’t find anything since he paid £40 million to run empty ferries to France and back. It was a concern, for a minute there I thought I’d have to do some proper work, then I realised this was the story.”
A nationwide appeal for information about his whereabouts yielded nothing. It seems that whilst everyone knows his name the public don’t recognise his face because, after every cock-up he goes into hiding. Now that Assange has been found The Bookies have made Chris favourite for the next Hide & Seek World Championships.
Eventually an inside source revealed the truth. The Prime Minster can’t risk sacking him, so Chris Grayling can’t go into his office, make any official decisions or been seen in public. Whilst, he has to attend cabinet meetings he doesn’t contribute but sits quietly in the corner with a colouring book and some edible crayons.
Surely it can only be a matter of time before once again Chris Grayling is firmly in the public eye.
