James Gordon Brown (born: 20th February 1951 - making him 3 years younger than I am) is The Prime Minister of The United Kingdom.
Here are some little known facts about Gordon:
When he accepted the position in Tony Blair's govenment as Chancellor of the Exchequer, waaaaaaaaay back. He had misunderstoon his 'title' and thought he was in charge of setting up games of 'checkers' for other politicians. By the time someone explained it to him, ten years later, it was too late for the suffering people who resided in the UK.
His PhD was NOT in history, but in 'mystery' and is issued by the MUTB (Mexican University of 'Taco Bell') for a mere 150,000 pounds sterling.
It is true that he spent his early career working on t.v.
but he was NOT a t.v. journalist. He donned the fuzzy suit of Tinky Winky and pranced about with the other Telly Tubbies for a while before being promoted to Mr. Blobby.
As well as being Prime Minister he also holds the offices of First Lord of the Treasury and Minister for the Civil Service.
The government won't let him handle REAL money so have put him in charge of all the Monopoly money in the UK.
As Minister for the Civil Services he has been told his role is to walk around cities, shaking hands kissing babies and trying to make everyone be civil to each other. He was a tad disappointed when he was told their was no uniform to go with this position.
Naturally, Gordon being Gordon, got his duties a bit confused and went about kissing hands and shaking babies during his first week in his position as Minister for the Civil Service. It's said that after 3 weeks of practise he had still not got it 'right'. The Government had to appoint Dennis Waterman as his 'Minder' whenever Gordon is out and about, to keep him 'in line'. (Theme tune written by Dennis Watermand and sung by Dennis Waterman).
After his initial rise in opinion polls (they only polled new immigrants who couldn't speak English), his approval ratings fell and the Labour Party suffered its worst local election results in 40 years.
Despite public and parliamentary pressure on his Leadership, Gordon Brown has barracaded himself in at No. 10 and is refusing all interviews. It is believed that food is being delivered via No. 9 through an adjoining door.
