Updated: Jul 7, 2020
Writers of satirical articles have taken a week off from writing as they are unable to top the story that Chris Grayling was announced as the Head of the Intelligence Committee.
The Tory minister has long been ridiculed during his previous government roles but still finds himself in a new important role.
A spokesman for the Association of Satirical Writers welcomed the break from work.
"This is an unexpected surprise, we never know when there are real stories so ridiculous that you just can't compete with them by making something up.
"Trump usually gives us something for a nice break and the Tories on occasion have done so too but this one might take the cake."
