Margot Wallström’s distress on collapse of Persson government.
Exiled peroxide hamster Margot Wallstrom struggled to contain her trademark public grief this weekend as news came through of the collapse of Goran Persson’s centre left government in Sweden’s national elections.
Aides grimaced through her personal sadness as the EU Commissioner for Chaff told reporters that the PM’s ignominious slide from power ‘couldn’t have happened to a nicer persson.’
And the news that ‘doughboy’ Persson would be stepping down in March amid the shame of defeat filled her ‘with no glee whatsoever.’
‘It’s all I can do to stop laughing through the pain.’
