Quandary Resolution 7124
feint, angle parking, diaphanous, bhangra

"We interrupt The Adventures of Daphne and Maude to take you over to Downing Street, where Prime Minister Theresa May has just addressed to the assembled Press Corps, after losing a crucial vote on the Government's Brexit Legislation and our Political Editor, Laura Kuensberg, is waiting to tell us what happened; Laura, what did Mrs May say?" "you may well ask, Hugh, because that's what everyone here is doing! no-one is quite sure exactly what Mrs May may or may not have said for when the door of Number 10 opened, the PM sashayed out in a diaphanous blue chiffon sari, to a bhangra beat from the Bombay Bay Boys – her backing group, made up of a number of her Cabinet members, who spread out behind her like a phalanx of angle-parked Special Branch Officers, and after the song, Āpani āmākē māratē pārachēna nā kāraṇa āmi nijēkē nā nā nā nā! which apparently translates as You can't beat me, cos I beat myself na na na na na! the PM blew a raspberry and cocked-a-snook in the direction of the Houses of Parliament, feinted to right and left to avoid questions being thrown at her and danced back inside, followed by her backing band; over to you Hugh!"
