LONDON, England - A proposal by Gordon Brown allowing hospitals to take organs from dead patients without their explicit consent has critics saying it doesn't have a leg to stand on. It is to be modelled after a program in Spain called "presumed consent," where a hospital there, can cut off your nose to spite your face, charge you an arm and leg if they don't see eye to eye with you and even do a balls up whether you like it or not.

As Mr. Brown sees it, his plan would not only alleviate the estimated 8,000 patients waiting for body parts but could also provide additional revenue for the NHS.Potential donors would be encouraged to come to England to die. In return they would get a mausoleum of their choice, along with fresh flowers weekly. Under the plan a medical staff would approach prominent people as donors and then have recipients bid, similar, to eBay on the body part of these famous people.

A spokesman for Mr. Brown said, "I mean, who wouldn't pay a premium for JLo's booty, Pamela Anderson's bazookas, Donald Trump's hair, Gene Simmons' tongue, Angelina Jolie's lips, Jamie Lee Curtis hermaphrodite, Marilyn Manson's eyes or maybe, even David Beckham's left foot?"

Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell will be at The Body Shop in Covent Garden Market along with Tony "I left my heart in England" Bennett next week to officially kick off the, "LEAVE IT TO BRITAIN" campaign.
