Theresa May Farted With Disappointment When Election Result Became Clear Claims Tory Insider
by Danny Soz

A source close to Prime Minister, Theresa May, revealed last night that she broke wind as news of her impending disaster at the polls became clear last June.

The anonymous insider told us: "I was standing right behind her when the exit poll results started coming in.

"Seconds after she was handed the forecast on a sheet of paper, she broke wind. 

"It was pretty loud and the stench was absolutely outrageous to be fair.

"I remember Boris Johnson exclaiming, "What a rip-snorter Prime Minister. You could sew a button on that"

"David Davies and a couple of the PM's advisors actually started gagging, while Andrea Ledsom hurried from the room with a hankie covering her nose and mouth just seconds afterwards.

"The Prime Minister seemed oblivious to the furore to be honest, but she did walk over to the window to open a fan light a minute or so later"

This latest revelation mirrors a disclosure made by the late, former Foreign Secretary, George Brown, who revealed in his memoirs, that, in 1964, the then Minister of Transport, Barbara Castle, unleashed a thunderous "double-barrel' during a summit conference with Russian President, Leonid Brezhnev, when the Russian challenged her stance on his nation's nuclear weapons build-up.
