Rain of terror

Gaddafi sheltering from the rain because he hasn't yet built a bandstand 

News broke last night that Colonel Gaddafi was reaching out to opposing factions with a last-ditch gesture of reconcilliation. 

The leader's olive branch is in the form of a bandstand; an edifice that he hopes will bring peace to Libya.

Colonel Gaddafi has been moved by the news that Petersfield Town Council has dismissed calls for a bandstand to be built, and, believing that it is a wonderful idea, is set to offer just such a monument to the Libyan people.

The Libyan dictator, broadcasting live on Al Jazeera TV, with umbrella in hand, said: "This structure will be a symbol of the harmony that has been reached between our peoples."

Newswire's roving reporter questioned the Colonel on why he had chosen a bandstand as the symbol of peace.

"Music is a manifestation of harmony," Gaddafi intoned. "But for harmony we must all work together. This is a beautiful and meaningful symbol.

"I was also moved by the turmoil endured by the people of Petersfield who are being denied a bandstand by a cruel and vindictive dictatorship - their Town Council. This form of tyranny should not be tolerated in our modern world and I beseech the people to fight for their bandstand."

Petersfield's bandstand is likely to make national news headlines as a result of Gaddafi's speech. A bandstand widely thought by the local population to be a fitting and appropriate momento of the Queen's diamond jubilee.

The stumbling block appears to be that a non-council member came up with the idea and the Town Council would rather burn the money than waste it on such an innovative and popular project thought up by a member of the public.

Gaddafi added: "England's Queen Elizabeth is a music-loving demagogue like me - and she would love such a bandstand."
