And the star declares an interest in the House Of Lords' gold throne...
Michael Jackson sang ‘HAPPY BIRTHDAY’ to recently appointed Cabinet Minister PAUL BOATENG at a surprise party in WESTMINSTER today (June 14).
The star also moonwalked in the Houses Of Parliament during a fleeting visit this afternoon.
He arrived at the Palace Of Westminster earlier today in a fleet of blacked-out limousines accompanied by spoon-bender Uri Geller and illusionist David Blaine.
He was met by Labour peer Lord Janner and given a tour of both The Commons and The Lords. During the tour, an assistant brushed Michael Jackson ‘s hair at regular intervals, while the star dabbed at his own face with a make-up sponge, the BBC reports.
In the Royal Gallery and Robing Room, Michael Jackson was mobbed by tourists and a group of schoolchildren, but stopped to shake hands and sign autographs. It was there that he moonwalked. When he was taken to the House of Lords, his favourite room in the palace, he pointed to the gold throne and cooed: “I want that.”
Michael Jackson was then taken to the Lord’s Terrace where he joined in a chorus of ‘Happy Birthday’ for newly appointed chief secretary to the treasury Paul Boateng.
“What a fantastic birthday surprise – I can’t believe it. It is the most incredible surprise. It’s the best present ever,” Boateng said.
Lord Janner then presented Michael Jackson with a House of Commons crystal bowl before he and his party were whisked off to meet their private train that will take them to Exeter City football ground where Michael Jackson will address the people of Exeter tonight.
