Doctors today confirmed that the UK economy has gone to pot not because the Labour Government have completely mismanaged the country, but because the Prime Minister Gordon Brown has AD - Anagram's Disease.
A leading professor, Professor Lee Ding, from the Royal Berkshire Hospital in, er, Berkshire, has revealed that the Prime Minister relies on a good anagram translation before he makes a decision. He explains:
"The Prime Minister (interim simper), Gordon Brown (born do wrong) will only speak to someone or make a decision about something if it makes a good anagram.
"For example, Ruth Kelly, despite being the politician we all love to hate, has remained in the cabinet because her anagram, "Hulk Tyler", was a favourite WWF wrestler of Gordon Brown's when he was young.
"Gordon only became Prime Minister not because Tony Blair (not by liar) stepped down to earn a fortune from public speaking, but because Downing Street is an anagram of "twin dogs enter". When gordon was young, his parents had two identical dogs called "Enter", which his dad used to send outside to see if it was raining (if the dogs came in wet, Mr Brown Senior knew it was raining)."
"He also only listens to music by the Electric Light Orchestra, because as a young schoolboy, he contracted a skin problem one summer, and their anagram is "corrects their legal itch".
"So when the Conservatives (vast on service) are elected sometime next year, at least the voters will know their anagrams are in safe hands."
