image for Olympic construction delay: Brown's wallet found
The construction site where the wallet was located.

Workers carrying out construction work on the 2012 Olympic Games site in London were forced to halt duties for some time after a worker discovered a wallet bearing the name of UK Prime Minister Mr Gordon Brown.

A phone call was made by the construction manager to Whitehall and it was confirmed that the wallet was indeed the Prime Minister's. Apparently the PM had found it missing after a previous visit to the site in September 2008 however his busy schedule prevented him from following up the mislaid Italian leather bound wallet.

The story doesn't end there, however. The construction company CEO, Mr Bernie Stiff, has claimed that the wallet doesn't belong to Mr Brown but in fact belongs to one of Mr Stiff's employees by the same name. A specific sum of money was found in the wallet and the employee confirmed that amount when questioned.

So now the leather container is subject to dispute between a lowly construction worker and his country's chief of government.

Pundits are tipping a face off between the two and even a good old fashioned barney to settle the matter of true ownership. My money's on the worker!

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