Don Foster denies Christmas single plans

From the Daily Mirror:
A Liberal Democrat MP was forced to deny he was releasing a Christmas single today after local journalists failed to spot a press release he issued was a spoof. 
Don Foster, the party spokesman for culture, media and sport, sent out an email to reporters entitled "Bath MP plots late charge for Christmas No 1", claiming the North Somerset MP was "releasing his first solo record in an attempt to gain the coveted top spot in the singles chart this Christmas" 
It went on to claim the MP would release a number showing off his skills on the ukulele after being inspired by Sir Cliff Richard's comments this week that "X Factor had killed the Christmas Number 1" and by Rage Against The Machine's bid to pip The X Factor to the Christmas 2010 top spot.
I can't help feeling that is a shame. It could have been key to holding those West Country marginals. Take it, George:

But how many puns can you cram into a 3 minute single?
