Current UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown has named his successor as his cousin, the former Hull manager, Phil Brown.
Whilst the news comes as a large shock to virtually everyone in the UK, it is apparently little surprise to Phil Brown who later described it as "Gordon's only sensible move".
Phil Brown, immortal, held a press conference in his country retreat "Phil Brown Towers" following the announcement. He described his intended first acts as the new Prime Minister, whilst continuing his trademark of referring to himself in the third person.
"I, Phil Brown accept this position. Phil Brown has a lot of plans and Phil Brown gets results. That's who Phil Brown is. Phil Brown isn't going to have a plan to replace Trident. Phil Brown is the replacement for trident. Phil Brown will use the money to build a spaceship and Phil Brown will go into space. That's what Phil Brown is all about"
He further described his insistence that the US President renames the 'Dow Jones' to the 'Phil Brown' as a sign of the "Special Relationship" that the President "inevitably wants with Phil Brown".
He concluded with the unexpected announcement that "Phil Brown doesn't like the Third World debt. So Phil Brown has paid it off."
He then fought 4 journalists at the same time.
Phil Brown won.
