In a bold attempt to halt the devastating slump of the country’s morale, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will fart the national anthem live on The One Show.
“The cost-of-Living crisis, war in Ukraine, strikes, we can understand just how difficult life is at present,” said a spokesperson for Number 10.
“What we need is something to rally around, something to remind us what it means to be British, and what better than seeing our Prime Minister fart the tune of ‘God Save the King’ live on the ever-popular The One Show.”
The Prime Ministerial musical flatulation will take place this coming Thursday. The show will open with the bass-player from the Charlatans making the draw for the next round of the FA Cup, then there will be a report from Martine McCutheon on model railway enthusiasts in war-torn South Sudan.
Finally, Rishi Sunak will take to a specially constructed stage on the concourse outside the studio to fart the National Anthem.
Viewers at home will be encouraged to go out onto their doorsteps and sing along or, if they feel suitably confident in the strength of their bowel muscles, to even fart along themselves.
It is expected that this will be the most significant moment of Rishi Sunak’s premiership so far. If it goes well, then there are plans at work to release the performance, along with the PM farting other popular songs such as ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ and ‘Jerusalem’ as an album in time for Christmas.
