image for Gordon Brown Courts Dummy Chancellor
"Gottle of geer"

Hot on the heals of steeling the hearts of "Britain's Got Talent" audience, ventriloquist Damon Scott's monkey has emerged as the recipient of Gordon Brown's latest Cabinet job offer.

After 10 years as Chancellor, Brown is reluctant to hand his old job over to anyone as sneaky and autocratic as he was, or daring enough to try and think for themselves, so the stuffed animal seems a well considered choice.

If the prop does take up residence at number 11 Brown will have to hone his skills in ventriloquism. When he and the monkey were interviewed by TheSpoof.com he almost choked on a glass of water before making several repetitions of "Gottle of geer".

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