Henry: A Just Kind of Guy?

Extracts from this document...


Henry: A Just Kind of Guy? "News just in. A rumour has been spreading around the country about taxes being raised. Here at the impartial BBC World Service, acting on behalf of Henry's Conservative Party, we believe that no taxes will be raised although we do suggest that you get all the overtime in you can to pay for taxes on funerals, bread and baptisms. Thank you, we will keep you updated on this story. In the meantime here are the headlines. And that fluffy kitten played with that ball of string all through the night. On a lighter note two tax collectors were brutally murdered today. One was hung and the other was savaged brutally by wild dogs. And now I have joining me in the studio a true Yorkshire man called Robert Aske. ...read more.

So as I said before there will be no more tax rises. And now we are going to the same prison where the fluffy kitten was executed to witness the execution of the fluffy kitten's owner. Now who's that? Is it the King? It is, what is he doing here? Oh its alright listeners, they are not going to kill the King, they are here to kill the 200 pilgrims that's all.
