It's a very serious subject, as we all know, but as this is Friday... In The Goon Show (1950s radio comedy) there was an episode where Harry Secombe was playing a refugee. He said: "I come here seeking political asylum!" To which Peter Sellers replied: "Go to the Houses of Parliament; that's the finest political asylum in the world!" :-)
