AL-SUN PLOT TO BOMB UK TODAY
The plot, intended to target the unit of murdered soldier Lee Rigby, was disrupted after Islamic State informed the British police and security services of how the newspaper's journalists had made contact with them.
"They told us they were willing to do the work for Allah," said Abu Oo Ee Oo Ah Ah Ting Tang Walla Walla Bing Bang al-Farqu, "which tipped us off immediately. None of our recruits talk like that, as they aren't complete imbeciles. We realised from the start they were either a journalist, or an especially stupid spy, and so played them at their own game. We first asked if they had access to firearms, then gave them a bunch of fake ingredients and instructions on how to make a pressure cooker bomb. We even told them to film a martyrdom video, just to make it seem authentic. They even believed the crap we told them about spraying the shrapnel with rat poison, for goodness sake."
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "It is always helpful when journalists invent terrorist plots, as the Sun did in this case, as we clearly don't have enough to do already. It also makes the public more likely to jump at their own shadow and pick on brown people with backpacks, which is exactly the kind of behaviour we think should be encouraged."
Abu Rupert al-Murdoch could not be reached for comment.
