Prime Minister Gordon Brown dropped in on a surprise visit to British Troops in Afghanistan this morning.
He had been kicked out of the plane by David Milliband, with a parachute of course, as they flew to the closing ceremony of the Olympics.
As he landed, his surprise message to the troops was very simple..........."Boo!"
Major General Rod Works, who is Colonel in Chief of the forces in Afghanistan, was said to be completely underwhelmed by this surprise visit. He said:
"As we saw this Scotch Mist descending from the heavens, we were actually set to open fire. The red circle on the back of his parachute with the message "Do not shoot outside the centre circle" really confused us for a few minutes. Thankfully for the Prime Minister, all our snipers were taking their daily fix with the Taliban during what we call 2pm Armistice Smoke and Shoot Up.
"When the Prime Minister landed and delivered his surprise "Boo!", we were completely underwhelmed."
Upon landing the Prime Minister asked to see the latrines. However, an astute Lance Corporal realised that the Prime Minister actually wanted to see the Afghan President Mohammed Karzai, and not the base camp toilets as Major General Rod Works had misheard.
