Glasgow, Scotland Former British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, on a private holiday to the Glaswegian environs, has admitted in a interview that he lived in a parallel universe while he was the UK's leader.
He explained that the society he existed in was completely poverty free, that everybody had jobs, the Government was utopian and free thinking and the tube ran on time.
"It was f...ing brilliant, an absolute hoot" Brown told the News of the World journalist.
When he was questioned about why the real world was so dire, Brown became evasive saying "You know its people like you who cause unrest".
The ex-Labour Prime Minister stridently denied any suggestion he had smoked pot for much of the period he was in office.
However former staffers of Brown have quietly insisted that the smell of weed was omnipresent whenever Brown was holding Cabinet meetings.
The former PM now indulges himself in crystal ball gazing and analysing sheep entrails.
