image for Shock as Gordon Brown appoints dead bodies to his cabinet
The new chancellor arrives at downing street.

Signs of Gordon Brown's desperation and increasing distance from reality have appeared today when he announced his latest cabinet reshuffle, a reshuffle which includes the mouldering corpse of Karl Marx, dead for over a century.

In what is seen as an olive branch to the left of the party, Marx has been brought in as chancellor and given a peerage.

Brown's much vaunted Government of all the talents living or dead also includes many other of Brown's heroes such as James Kier Hardy and Adam Smith, a surprise choice from the political right, to act as financial adviser.

"Death should be no hindrance to talent" the PM told reporters after the shock announcements "and in these unprecedented times of financial turmoil, we require the greatest figures throughout history."

It is rumoured he is considering drafting in Stalin and Mussolini if things get especially tough in the coming months.
