A distraught grandmother has revealed how a callous scammer tricked her into proroguing Parliament.
The victim, who lives in the London area, doesn’t want to be identified because she feels deeply upset at the con trick. So she’s asked to be referred to by a nickname, Queenie.
Queenie has been completely outraged by the trickster, saying he’s shown a blatant disregard for basic decency and honesty.
“At first the fellow seemed to be perfectly plausible,” sighed Queenie as she lovingly stroked the ears of her pet Corgi.
“But looking back on it, even then there were tell-tale signs that he was a Wrong ‘Un. The ruffian had masses of unruly blonde hair and reminded me a bit of that awful Marilyn Monroe whom my husband keeps lusting after.”
Queenie said the scam couldn’t have come at a worse time, as her family was already going through a difficult period.
“One of my sons is currently in a bit of bother with the police, well the FBI Anti-Paedophile Unit actually,” she explained.
“Then there’s my eldest lad. He’s a right dimwit and just keeps talking to plants. The muppet wants to take over the family business that I run. But I’m sure he’d be useless at it, so I’ve just got to keep going as best as I can.”
Queenie shuddered as she recalled the fateful meeting when the con man struck.
“He was just like a double glazing salesman, talking for ages and wouldn’t take no for an answer. Suddenly he pulled out a vellum parchment from his top pocket and said all I had to do was prorogue on the dotted line. I wanted him out of the gaff so just did it. I bitterly regret not reading the small print.”
The country has been in uproar ever since Parliament was suspended.
Queenie added: “I’m very tempted to take this dreadful man to court over what he’s done. I’m sure I’d win, after all I own the courts.”
