SARAH Clarke, also known as Lady Usher Of The Black Rod, the ceremonial face of British parliament and a key player in yesterday’s re-opening of the House Of Lords, is back to her day job rodding drains with the ever-busy drain-rodding company Dyno-Rod.

Trading her black-and-white ceremonial garb for an orange high-vis jumpsuit, Lady Clarke opened up to WWN about the pomp and ceremony surrounding the Queen’s speech to parliament yesterday, all while breaking up a big dump that was clogging a sewer in a housing estate in Ipswich.

“I spent fifteen years in rodding school, and it has really set me up for a career in rods of all sorts; from the Black rod, to these yard-long screw-tops that we use for stopping toilets backing up” said Clarke, knee-deep in sewerage.

“Yesterday was nice, I got to go into the House Of Lords and dress up and do the whole knock-three-times shite… meet the Queen, be part of the whole ceremony. It’s well paid, but in honesty it’s a bit ridiculous. Here we are, weeks from Brexit, negotiations going down to the wire, and we’re all playing dress-up for half the day. That’s what I like about Dyno-Rod; there’s none of that fucking around. You see a massive poo and a load of nappies blocking a sewer, and you mush all that up and drag it out. Job done. No messing”.

Clarke has another appointment in Westminster this evening, although this one is a Dyno-Rod call-out to see if they can do anything about the overwhelming bullshit that has clogged them up for over three years.

ONE MORE THING: Like what WWN does and think Satire (known in Ireland as 'taking the piss') is worth supporting as we face the threat of legal action, the permanently offended and 'Big Tech'?
