British Prime Minister Gordon Brown today denied he was a clown.

Speaking from 10 Downing Street, whilst juggling three tennis balls and blowing a whistle, Mr. Brown said: 'I am not a clown, please stop saying this.' And, pausing briefly to throw a bucket of water over a passing Tony Blair, he added: 'Having me as the leader of Britain is a very serious and unfunny matter', and to the sound of journalists sniggering, he said: 'I will be appointing Alistair Tumbling as Chancellor soon, after he's gathered up all the money you have.'

Some have suspected Mr. Brown to be a clown, or what is technically called in Scotland as a 'big, fat, chancing balloon', for a while now, but others have just ignored him, and enjoyed the clowning around that George Bush does.

But a certain Elizabeth Windsor, speaking from her 365-bedroom council house in London, said: 'Maybe someone should tell Mr. Clown that the leader of Britain is I, not he.'

And Opposition leader, David Boredom, said: 'OK yah.'

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