Amid growing concern and fears for public safety, illusionist extremists The Magic Circle have been deemed a threat to security and democracy.

The so-called magicians have publicly recorded many of their barbaric acts including brutally sawing live women in half and reattaching their legs without anaesthetic.

Animal rights groups describe controversial situations in which oppressed rabbits have been forced to remain in top hats and rare white tigers made to appear in a puff of smoke.

Defence Secretary, Michael Fallon has said, “The Magic Circle are a very real threat to reality as we know it. We are aware some of their members appear to possess the ability to make famous landmarks and cruise ships disappear without explanation. If you suspect someone may be involved in magic of this kind please contact the authorities immediately.”

“Under no circumstances should you attempt to approach or pick a card from these dangerous conjurers.”
