London - "WTF?" was the famous singer-songwriter's response to stories linking him and disgraced P2 Lodge hitman General Augusto Pinochet.

UK broadsheet stories have claimed the Chilean Supreme Court is considering extraditing Davies 'because he was commander of the US military mission in Chile in 1973'.

Their sources in Santiago reckon the writ alleges Davies 'was complicit in the disappearance and topping of two lefty US nationals during the coup that brought Pinochet to power'.

The former Kinks frontman's PR agency is emphatic the whole story is bollox, of course.

"The name in the papers is Ray E. Davis, you f***ing t***s," Celebs-R-Us tweeted at lunchtime.

But the confusion is still causing mayhem in showbiz circles as a catalogue of errors begins coming to light.

It started this week with an admittedly daft rumor that the ex-Chile dictator was busy singing the Kinks' May 1967 smash hit 'Waterloo Sunset' in the bath when busted in London by Special Branch in 1998.

A red top's innuendo then 'stuck in the knife' with pix of a Soho hooker called 'Lola' scrubbing the old ex-Generalissomo's er, back.

The last straw then came in the shape of a Savile Row tailors' TV ad claiming credit for Pinochet's inimicable sartorial style - against the background music of the Kinks' February 1966 chart topper 'Dedicated Follower of Fashion':

'Oh yes he is! (oh yes he is!)/ Oh yes he is....!'

Pinochet died on 10 December 2006 after one last night of passion with old flame Mrs Thatcher.

He owed the Northern Rock Bank fifty million quid.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
