Come the millenium

After the audacious foiling of a raid on the priceless diamonds held in the ‘Money Zone’ of the Millenium Dome, dome manager Pierre Yves Gerbeau was said to be ‘delighted’ with the outcome which has boosted attendance for the day by at least 34. He proudly said ‘The four robbers and the thirty policemen who captured them have made an appreciable difference to the days' attendance figures.’ His spokesman added that he hoped a similarly large police presence could be expected at forthcoming crimes expected to be committed at the dome. Rumours that these will include the attempted murder of Claire Short (who recently called the Dome a ‘disaster’) by an enraged Lord Falconer have not yet been denied.
