A motorist, on his way home from work in Westminster came to a dead halt
in traffic and thought to himself, "Wow, this traffic seems worse than

After a short while , he noticed a police officer walking towards him,
between the lines of stopped cars. He rolled down his window and asked,
"Officer, what's the hold up?"

The constable replied "Tony Blair is depressed, so he stopped his motorcar
and is threatening to douse himself with petrol and set himself on fire.
He says no one believes his stories; about why we went to war in Iraq, or
that there is no pensions crisis, or the worsening economy, or that

that his Party's proposed tax cuts won't help anyone except his wealthy
friends, or that his chairmanship of the European Community hasn`t just

A recent question in a the final paper for a journalism degree:

You are a photographic reporter tasked to record images of a terrible flood in East Anglia.

The Prime Minister is flying in to show compassion with the bereaved. His helicopter crashes not far from you. You rush to the scene and spot the PM struggling in the water. You are the only person around. You can either capture an image that will make you rich and famous or you can save the PM.

Discus your likely actions with particular reference to film speed, aperture setting and lense selection.

Laugh? Well, almost.
