Following claims by leader of the Conservative party, David Cameron, Prime Minister Gordon Brown has been forced to reveal the true cause of the phenomenon commonly known as global warming.

In a statement released by a Downing Street spokesperson, it was revealed that the entire concept of global warming being caused by carbon emissions is, in fact, nothing more than an elaborate hoax created by Mr Brown and the cabinet. It emerged that it would be more appropriate to describe global warming as 'parliamentary warming'.

Mr Brown was forced to admit that the copious amounts of hot air expelled by politicians in parliament, are the true cause of the rise in global temperatures. Mr Brown also admitted that the hole in the ozone layer is directly above the Houses of Parliament.

Environmental scientists explained in detail, how these phenomena are actually made worse when people tell lies. Professor Earl Grey of the British National Institute of Environmental Scientists, said that 'When a person tells a lie , the temperature of the air emitted by their mouth is three degrees centigrade higher than it would be if they were to tell the truth'.

Professor Grey urged politicians to 'break with tradition and tell the truth- at least some of the time, in order to save the planet'.

In his statement issued today, Mr Brown vehemently denied that his party were largely to blame for this environmental disaster in the making. Curiously, the temperature in London rose by approximately three degrees centigrade following Mr Brown's comments...
