A TV viewer has made a completely understandable error.

Barry Cooper, 67, was hoping to catch up on the latest round of fuckery from the Houses of Parliament, but accidentally tuned into UKTV Gold and is currently watching an old repeat of “it’s a Knockout”.

“Look at it. It’s chaos down there. Boris Johnson just has no control of anything. They’re all running about in daft suits and don’t seem to have a clue what they’re doing.

“There’s that scrawny bloke, Rees-Mogg, he’s just given up, he’s just lying there. No wonder they’re throwing custard pies at him, I would as well.

“Ooh is that Jeremy Corbyn?? I assume so, he’s got a beard…oh my, he’s opting to play his Joker! I didn’t know parliament did that. This will be interesting.”

“…is that Stuart Hall’s voice I can hear? I didn’t know they’d started doing commentary on the BBC Parliament channel. Oh well, livens things up I suppose. Bit surprising though, I thought he got sent down for being a nonce.”

Cooper’s wife said, “Typically I’d say this error has occurred because Barry’s a moron who refuses to wear his glasses, but it took me a good ten minutes to work out we weren’t watching BBC Parliament.

“I’m not going to tell him though.”
