Shop windows have been unboarded, the bunting has been put away and cats, dogs and small children can be let out to play: The Chaps
have returned home from their tri-annual 4 Chaps event. Speaking to a representative of The Swindon Mayhem Containment Society (SMaCS), Mike Bawden (the Mayor of Swindon) was heard to say "Thank God that’s over for another 3 years". As Tudor, Scott, Long and Smith-Ferrier, aka 4 Chaps From Blighty, left Swindon under police escort, the military begun the process of stepping down. A local Swindon man (who for obvious reasons did not want to be named) had this to say: "Forget 120 arrests in Stuttgart. We survived a visit by The 4 Chaps. And most of my family are still alive". He went on to say that a lovely semi-detatched with resplendent rose bushes and floral arrangements is expected to be for sale in another 2 years and 363 days.

When criticized that putting the Royal Navy on full alert and cancelling all leave was over-reacting the Home Secretary had this to say "Everyone thought all of the preparation for the Y2K bug was overkill after the event. But what would have happened if we hadn’t done all that preparation ?".
4 Chaps spokesperson, Steve Tudor, left with these final words: "Honestly, I don’t know what all the fuss is about. We just came to have some beer and a chat. I really think you’re over-reacting".
