Viewers choked on their popcorn last night as Labour MP Anas Sarwar's pants caught fire as he pledged that labour would scrap the Unionist bedroom tax if they got into power. This was news to London Labour who admitted that they have pledged no such thing.
Mr Sarwar refused to answer any questions put to him by Nicloa Sturgeon of the SNP during the televised debate and decided to make up stories instead.
An unofficial spokesperson said that Mr Sarwar's nose started to get really long as the porkies spilled out of his mouth and then... kaboom !!...his pants burst into flames.
It was great telly to watch but a sad day for Mr Sarwar's career. Will the millionaire now join his dad in the Punjab ? That's the big question everybody is asking tonight.
Except BBC Scotland of course. They've 'mysteriously' missed the big bedroom tax story and are breaking on a dog being found in a layby with a matted coat.
