Gordon Brown, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, is to be cryogenically frozen in 3 days time.
The announcement which was made today by a Downing Street spokesman, confirmed that the process would be completed by an expert in the field.
An un-named source described the reasoning behind Brown's decision.
"Gordon knows that the only way he will be voted back into power, is if he can solve the economy. He genuinely believes that he has done enough to address the problem, but it is going to take a number of years for the solutions to kick in. So, he wants to be frozen until such time that the economy is healthy again. At that point, he will be defrosted and can take power and lead the country to greatness."
Experts believe that it may be 2020 before Brown is thawed.
