Spoof of the Month on the 9th planet and Corbyn's policies

Thanks to Josias Jessup on "Political Betting" for posting this spoof report:

"American astronomers say they have strong evidence that there is a ninth policy in our Solar System orbiting far to the left of even Corbyn's existing policies.

The team, from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), has no direct observations to confirm its presence just yet.

Rather, the scientists make the claim based on the way other far-flung policies are seen to move.

But if correct, the putative policy would have 10 times the comedy value of Trident submarines with no missiles, and one-millionth the popularity of negotiating over the Falklands.

The Caltech astronomers have a vague idea where the policy ought to be in space, and their work is sure to fire a campaign to try to track it down.

'There are many telescopes on the Earth that actually have a chance of being able to find it' said Dr Mike Brown
'And I'm really hoping that as we announce this, people start a worldwide search to go find this ninth policy. After all, we're astronomers, and we could do with a good laugh.'"
