Gordon Brown has announced that he is to get tough on terror by awarding police sweeping new powers; for example: extending the current 28 day detention for questioning suspected terrorists to 25 years.
"We've heard it all before" Said one of Tony Blair's mates. "Tony came up with that one and he got bloody nowhere. Gordon is just copying him"
This is not the first time this allegation has been levelled against Brown.
"When they were junior up and coming labour candidates, they used to go to labour party discos together. I remember that Gordon used to copy all of Tony's sexy dance moves. He even used to shove vegetables down his pants to make it look like he had a large todger like the bloke from Spinal Tap who does Principle Skinner. He's a total prat" said a good friend of Gordon's.
A political observer commented earlier saying that Brown had to make an impact as he would probably be voted out at the next election and doesn't have time to get a war in while he is PM. It is no suprise that he is bringing in a stupid law. He is so deperate to be remembered.
