Gordon Brown, manager of East Kirkaldy FC, has been given a public vote of confidence by the club's Board of Directors. This follows the recent home fefeat which leaves qualification for the Champions League a mathematical impossibility.
Chairman of the Board, Angus MacAngus said "Gordon Brown's position is safe. He will remain manager here for many years to come. Or at least until we can persuade someone else to stab him in the back and take the job."
Brown took over the job from Tony Blair, who had forgotten the importance of the domestic league in his quest for European honours. Blair often clashed with his assistant John "It's a game of two halves of ale" Prescott and the pair departed following a transfer bung scandal.
Brown now has the dreaded vote of confidence. Former Grantham Athletic boss Margaret Thatcher remembers just how such a vote can work against you. "The Board called me, told me that I was still doing a fantastic job in Europe. By the time I'd got out of the elevator I was sacked. There is no loyalty in football these days."
Meanwhile David Cameron is hoping to be given a shot at the national job following a good season with AFC Pimms. If results go his way in the final match of the season he could find himself playing on the world stage.
