The Prime Minister, Gordon Brown was enraged this week when the entire British Cabinet failed to show up for work.
Mrs Darling, the mother of Alistair Darling rang the Prime Minister to explain that he had had a party the previous the night at his house with the whole cabinet and they woke up to find that snow had fallen and they were all trapped.
Gordon Brown took a little while to realise that this was in fact bollocks. Mr Darling actually lives next door to Mr Brown and his office is in the same building.
The cabinet spent the whole day rubbing Gordon's face in it by playing in the snow in Downing Street. Lord Peter Mandleson made numerous snow angels while Ed Balls organised a mass snowball fight.
Gordon was not impressed with not only being left out of the party the night before but not being asked to play outside. His mood was not improved when Tony Blair turned up just to help the Milliband boys make their snowman.
Gordon Brown then suffered even more humiliation while the worlds press took photographs of the snowman which strangely had been given a sign saying "my name is Gordon."
The snowman then began to melt and looked like a giant penis.
