THE MINISTRY OF DISTRACTION

‘What’s it to be today, Sir?’

‘Options?’

‘Well, we have the usual of course: immigration outrage, racial injustice, free school meals for the poorest children…’

‘Stop, stop, stop. Are you mad? All of those can be linked back to me. What else?’

‘Ah, you want something a bit juicier, more conspiracy theory. How about the Flat-Earthers? We could disseminate something there to keep the Tweeters distracted. Or a bit of celebrity scandal, just like the good old days.’

‘That’s more like it. I leave it to your discretion to get the timing right. The latest infection and death figures are announced at midday. Make sure they are buried.’

‘Of course, Sir. We aim to please.’

‘And tomorrow we’ll have to announce the no-deal Brexit. Make sure you have something big ready for that one.’
