In an effort to get the masses more interested in politics, Parliament has taken a cue from football and instituted a transfer deadline day, after which Party leaders are unable to make alterations to their cabinets. With just hours to go, BBC and Sky reporters sit outside the offices of the major political parties and have frantic roving reporters ready to jump in a helicopter to secure the first word on the latest transfers. In the studios, anchormen and women desperately try to separate fact from fiction, but can’t resist reporting on the most absurd rumours…
--- BREAKING NEWS ---
Ed Miliband, the recently-appointed manager of the League's second biggest team, has once again made an approach for veteran budget-keeper Vince Cable.
Cable is known to be unhappy after his surprise loan move to the Conservatives last summer. But a series of mistakes and poor performances have forced the former number two at the Liberal Democrats onto the periphery of the government's first-team squad.
The deal that took Vince to the blue half of Westminster also brought prominent team members such as Nick Clegg, Danny Alexander and Sarah Teather to the newly assembled 'coalition' squad, in what was the most audacious piece of summer transfer activity since the league's most successful manager in recent years - Tony Blair - was able to poach balding midfield general Shaun Woodward from his main rivals in 1999.
Others thought to be unhappy at his move last year include Chris Huhne, who many think has let his high-profile domestic problems and brush with the law affect his natural game. Slick coalition gaffer, David Cameron, is thought to be secretly considering making a shock move for the young striker David Laws, who was controversially released just a month after his signing in 2010.
Cameron has already shown a flair for working with players from the competition and has succeeded in pairing up long-standing, but rival, campaigners Iain Duncan Smith and Frank Field at the back; and himself successfully took centre-stage with red cult-hero John Reid for the recent Alternative Vote cup victory.
Other players up for grabs include the Speaker John Bercow, who is currently unattached, although remains an ever-present presence in the media thanks to his high-profile WAG. Bercow was released by the Conservatives last season after a decade at the club, but is not popular among his former blue colleagues and is thought to favour a move to Labour if he decides to return to first-team action.
There are just a few days left in this year's transfer window and Cameron, Miliband and Clegg will be working hard behind closed doors to get their last-minute deals in the bag.
One thing's for sure - with the coalition squad rocking, the next twelve months could provide some of the most interesting action seen in Westminster for many years.
