Deeply suspicious: John Barilaro announces new job as UK Prime Minister

The UK Conservative Party have today defended the surprise appointment of former NSW politician John Barilaro to the role of Prime Minister, stating he was simply the most qualified person not on the long list of candidates.

“The fact is we went through a thorough and detailed selection process following all the regular protocols,” explained the UK government. “And then at the last minute we dumped that process and went with Barilaro. So it was completely above board.”

However some critics have pointed out that Barilaro’s appointment was deeply suspicious, before being immediately raided by the Fixated Persons Unit.
