Charlie Brooker Hilariously Reacts to Cameron's Pig-gate


As political revelations go, this one puts Watergate in the shade. Profumo Scandal - who cares? And at least Bill Clinton was caught with a human.

Yesterday the world changed forever as it was revealed in The Daily Mail that our Prime Minister allegedly once had sexual relations with a dead pig. The news was revealed in the first part of a serialisation of a new book written by former Tory funder Lord Ashcroft and Isabel Oakeshott.

As if this wasn't crazy enough already - the idea of a Prime Minster having 'intimate relations' with a pig was actually featured in episode one of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror TV series: after a Royal Princess is kidnapped, the ransom is that the PM must go on television to have sexual intercourse with a pig on live national television. Similarly to much of Chris Morris' work, and the television ideas of Alan Partridge, things that were written as being hilarious satirical are actually becoming (allegedly) true.

Brooker took to Twitter to explain that he couldn't quite believe it either.


And finally, a word of advice for his new political rival:

If Jeremy Corbyn does nothing but make pig-related puns throughout Prime Minister's Questions on Wednesday then we're pretty sure the British public will vote him into office immediately. Frankly, it's a shame Ed Miliband isn't still Labour leader: he could finally have got payback for all those bacon sandwich comments...
