Here's a site worth checking out - BrainsTrust.co.uk. Pitching itself as the British Onion, it heartily embarks on that grand voyage of satire that had provided some of the most memorable sketches of politicians and celebrities in the last fifty years.

It being election time, inevitably, politics comes high on the site at the moment. And so you can read a leaked copy of Hague's concession speech, a report on David Beckham haircut's bid for the seat of Brent North or check out the "manifestos at a glance" (Race Relations: Conservative - Immigrants out!; Labour - Immigrants in! But not on the front bench, obviously; LibDem - Fast-track promotion for colour-blind police officers).

Or if you're sick of the election, read how the postal strike has extended to emails, James Cameron has started work on Hiroshima - The Movie or how the government has unveiled a link-up between the NHS and eBay ("from now on, all operations in NHS hospitals will be put out to tender on the internet auction service, eBay").

It's good. It'll cheer you up. ®
