image for "Curtains Closed Solidarity Movement" Rises in Support of The Unemployed
One of George Osborne's houses in London with all 700 curtain open.

A spokesman for the "Curtains closed Unemployed Solidarity Movement" called Gordon Brown, has tonight expressed his gratitude to the 8 million people who are joining him in keeping their curtains closed in 2013 in support of the unemployed.

He says "2013 is going to be a dark year for many as they find themselves out of work due to Government austerity cuts, and that is the reason I decided to ask people on New Year's day to show their support for the unemployed in their hour of darkness."

He asked the e-world to agree to keep their curtains closed for the whole of 2013 to show solidarity and he was amazed at the instant response he received.

Within an hour he had 10 supporters, then within two hours he had 12. It was amazing. He was so pleased with this level of support that he went to bed happy. But when he woke up the next day, he was overjoyed to see that 8 million people had joined his cause over night.

He said "Although I couldn't see my keyboard because its quite dark in my house in Kirkcaldie with the curtains closed, and I'm a bit mean with the electricity, I could see that the world was with me"

George Osborne who started the ostracization of the people with closed curtains was unavailable to comment last night, but when 8 people from the "Curtains closed movement" went to interview him at his palatial home in London, they could quite clearly see that every single one of his 700 curtains were wide open in defiance at the movement.

Mr Brown says he hopes that his supporters will carry on the good work and that hopefully one day there will come a time when everyone who wants to have open curtains shall be given the chance to have them.
