National have announced their nuclear ships policy for this week:
"Nuclear ships will not be okay with us this week," said a short but wringing wet party spin doctor, "and will probably be okay, or not, next week either." Pressed to clarify his remarks as a pool of wetness grew around him, the spokes-spinner went on to say that "he wished to make the policy clear, quite clear, so that this issue will no longer be an issue --except if it becomes one -- and so there are no further misunderstandings about our position, which we do have, and about which we've always been very certain. Very certain indeed. Except when we weren't."
The spokeswaffler went on to apologise for his uncharacteristic display of forthrightness. "We're really quite firm that we're not firm about this anymore," he was heard to say to the few remaining people who continued to take him seriously.
