London, Monday. In a candid conversation with the Evening Standard journalist, Horst Buchwald, former Prime Minister Gordon Brown revealed that notorious war-time Nazi leader Adolf Hitler hid from Allied troops in the attic of the Brown family home in Edinburgh.
Brown said that Hitler arrived on the family doorstep on VE Day 1945 dressed as a Scottish crofter and asked for shelter, saying that English football thugs were chasing him.
Later that evening, after he consumed two bottles of whiskey, Hitler revealed his real identity saying that if they, the Browns, didn't accommodate his requests then he would send the Brown Shirts around to make their life miserable.
Little Gordon Brown, five years old at the time, innocently asked who the Brown Shirts were. Hearing this enquiry, Hitler exploded in a violent rage screaming that "What were the last twelve years all about then? Stupid people!"
Brown said in the interview that Hitler stayed about six weeks before choosing a new disguise, this time Anthony Eden, to continue his escapade. Ironically, Eden (or was it Hitler) became Prime Minister in 1955.
Gordon Brown ignored incredulous reactions to his revelations and says he saw Hitler with his own eyes.
Yeah, right, Gordo.
