Staff at the local Bethany Christian Trust Shop were surprised when they opened some boxes which former PM Gordon Brown had donated.
Mr Brown who had to vacate his Downing Street home in May had promised the items to the charity shop in his constituency. The boxes included things such as glasses, ceramic mixing bowls, and toys from the ex PM's children including a teddy bear with an "I Love GB T-shirt" on.
Most of the items went on sale for between £2 and £10 but staff were baffled when they found a 12 inch effigy of former PM Tony Blair with pins sticking in it. Was Gordon Brown in to Witchcraft or did he really hate his ex boss enough to have an effigy made of him.
Shop manager Pat Stuart said "Gordon Brown promised to donate things to the charity when he opened the shop a few months ago. He has kept his promise, but the effigy of Tony Blair is a total mystery!.
A spokesperson for 10 Downing Street said" When Gordon stayed here he would go off on his own to one of the side rooms and lock the door. Staff would hear him chanting and assumed he was speaking Gaelic. He continued to say that this could explain the aches and pains Mr Blair suffered in the last few years. The current occupier David Cameron does the same but does not chant, so if Nick Clegg gets aches and pains it might be due to Mr Cameron!.
