Sir Algernon Carstairs-Brown is a worried man. The leading Tory Backbencher who keeps the Party 'on track' has been faced with terrible news.
He always knew the Brown in his honourable name Carstairs-Brown, was from his grandmother Gordina Brown. Now, through his examination of his ancestry on the internet he has discovered a link between Gordina and the recent Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Gordina came from Scotland and almost lost an eye in a Rugby match. In her family Gordon and Gordina are common names. It is also known that Gordina's uncle was an active Scottish Presbyterian Minister. Now links between him and Gordon Brown's father have been established.
Knowledge of these facts was being kept under the carpet until the 'News of the World' got hold of the story and were ready with a front page headline: 'Tory Right Winger has Left Ancestry Shock Horror Shame'
However Rupert Murdoch has been persuaded to drop the story because Algernon has discovered that Murdoch's grandmother is a Balls. Positive proof exists that she was an ancestor of Labour's Ed Balls as well!
