Gordon Brown is often referred to as Gorgon Brown, Prime Monster. For once (perhaps the first time) he has got out the right side of the bed (NOT politically speaking though - he's still Labour) because he has decided to offer the services of his Ministers for FREE. Yes, you heard it right FREE! Gratis, zilch, nowt, nothing.
He has made a miraculous altruistic gesture in promising public sector employees a below inflation pay rise, but has gone one better with his government by taking their wages off them altogether and even their expenses; many claim expenses for around £100,000 per annum - much of this goes on staying in luxury hotels, driving big cars, flying business class, and eating in expensive restaurants.
Mr Brown told our In Seine News political correspondent;
"If this country is democratic, then we are going to have to lead by example and give the electorate the ministers who can give the very best value-for-(no) money. Yes things will be tight, but I'm sure they will soon get used to staying in Travel Lodges, eating at Gregg's, McDonald's or even Morrison's where a good all-day breakfast is served for less than £4. My party will all be issued with bicycle to reduce our Carbon Footprints and we shall save millions on not paying the congestion charge."
"Follow that Cameron!" he challenged
However, '2 Jags' (or is it now 2 Tatas?) Prescott is rumoured to be retiring and is applying for Incapacity Benefit before the Conservative 'thugs' get in power.
