The Circus Animals Desertion

While we wait for the next instalment of Greece, here's a suggestion.

Move all the 39 or so circus animals left in the UK into the House of Commons and put the 650 MPs under canvas in an EU 'occupied field' - virtually anywhere in Western Europe.

For a modest admission fee the public could watch them balancing balls, jumping through hoops and sitting up to beg as the ringmaster - Herman van Rompuy - cracks his whip and chants haikus, while Baroness Ashton dances pointlessly about on her toes.
