Gordon Brown has denied being responsible for placing a sticker on Tony Blair's back with the words "Tony tosser" on it.
He admitted that he had attended an impromptu press conference earlier with Mr Blair and had stood beside the Prime Minister while he responded to the Tosser Report. Brown was clearly seen placing his hand firmly on the back of Blair.
After making that odd mouth opening gesture, creepy Brown said:
"I attended the press meeting only to show support and solidarity with Tony. I placed a re-assuring hand on his shoulders to let him know I was beside him and with him. There is absolutely no question that I would behave in such a childish manner and take such a cheap shot."
The Prime Minister was said to be furious having not noticed the sticker was there until after three meetings with foreign diplomats and a brief discussion with a member of the public submitting a petition.
Staff at Downing Street are stumped as to how no one noticed it until some four hours and three high profiled meetings later.
An investigation will be carried out to identify who was responsible. Police have suggested that the culprit could be charged with assault.
