A White House spokesperson has confirmed that the US President Donald Trump has granted political asylum to Tony Robinson.

He told reporters that the President couldn’t understand why the British government was ‘treating a war hero so badly.’

He added, ‘How can Theresa May’s administration do this to someone who fought in the trenches in World War One?’

‘Mr President saw a documentary about him on PBS last night. His poem about the conflict was incredibly moving.’

‘Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. Just so poignant and deep.’

‘Let’s not forget his service to Robin of Yaxley as well in his struggle against the Sheriff of Nottingham.’

‘2,4,6,8 Motorway was an absolute banger too.’
