Brown "Dumb Yanks" jibe

In an unfortunate outburst today, Gordon Brown was heard over an open microphone talking to French Pres.Sarkozy. The PM was heard saying, "[we're] smarter than those dumb Yanks," in reference to the American change of plan to bail out the banks.

The American government is to follow the British model and take equity stakes in banks instead of buying up "toxic loans" as originally planned. In an obviously confused moment he was also heard to wonder why Obama couldn't "just stick to being the best golfer in the world"

Brown, described by friends as "a smug little git with some weird mouth action going on" brushed off the gaffe, saying, "I'm sure those hillbillies have a sense of humour, I wasn't being serious"

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