image for New Labour Printing Error Claims Jordan to be Next Prime Minister
Give me Margret Thatcher any day

A grave printing error has thrown egg into the faces of a number of rebel Labour MPs. The ministers, who are campaigning for the ousting of Tony Blair as leader of the Labour party and for him to be replaced by Gordon Brown as soon as possible, are said to be deeply embarrassed by the mistake.

In efforts to rally support for the Chancellor, a poster and leaflet campaign was implemented by the rebel MPs. The campaign was to be as plain and straightforward as possible. None of the usual "gimmicky crap" used in almost all of the traditional New Labour advertising, explained one MP.

The leaflets and posters simply read in bold black text on a white background: "Gordon in - Tony out". At least, that was the intended text, instead due to what has been described as a "monumental cock-up" they read: "Jordan in - Tony out".

Jordan (a.k.a. Katie Price), the glamour model, admitted she would be quite willing to assume the position, but denied any desire to become leader of the Labour party.

The defective leaflets were estimated to have already been distributed to at least 25,000 people before the mistake was spotted.
