UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, will celebrate Easter this Christmas. The clumsy PM, in a doorstop with press correspondents, declared that he and his family would "be hanging out the sacks in anticipation of a rewarding visit from the Easter Bunny".
Mr Brown, coincidentally, confused last Easter with the Yuletide when he said "may santa be kind to you this Easter" to a group of schoolchildren.
Though on the surface it looks like simple mental confusion, Professor Fred Smartass of Redding University believes the Prime Minister is indulging in pseudo-Communist propaganda to trivialise the Christian festivities.
"By delibrately confusing the issue, Mr Brown is seeking to weaken the significance of Christmas and Easter in people's minds, with the goal of ultimately legislating their disappearance" he said.
Mrs Irene Bullwinkle of 20 Forthlin Road Acton was more forthcoming. "He's a right b.....d and I wish he'd f...k off" she cried.
Mr Brown will be appearing as a Xmas elf in the London Dramatic Society's production of Antony and Cleopatra.
