Gordon Brown has admitted that he has been involved in an elaborate hoax, devised by the producers of the hit Channel 4 programme, Faking It.
Faking it got members of the public to convince a panel of experts that they were who they said they were and thus, experienced in their field and not in fact faking it.
Since taking over in 2007, Brown or Lord Gord as he prefers to be known, in his first few weeks as PM had to deal with an outbreak again of Foot and Mouth, the collapse of Northern Rock and Jose Mourhinio being sacked by Chelsea.
Evidence was mounting that the pressure of running the country was starting to get to Gord when the press highlighted his chewed finger nails indicating this was an individual who was starting to feel the strain.
Brown, whose party suffered heavy losses in the local elections recently, particularly in the labour stronghold area of Crewe, Cheshire. A big surprise when one realises that the Tory candidate passed away in 2001 and has not been replaced.
This is not the first time that the British public has been 'duped' into a similar scenario. Tim Henman successfully convinced tennis fans that he was any good at the sport for the better part of 10 years.
He wasn't. The dull bastard.
