image for Gordon gives it all away for weather
Ex PM Gordon Brown now sadly just a weather forecaster

UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown has announced his resignation as the country's leader and will pursue a career as a weather forecaster with the British Meteorological Service. Asked why the sudden move, Brown replied that weather forecasting has always been a goal of his since he was at school and with the Service actively looking for new recruits, he thought now was a better time than any to seek employment.

So Mr Brown emailed off his application like any hopeful job seeker and two days later was answered with a firm "no".

Being a gritty and determined Scot, Brown pulled a few strings within the overseeing Government department and managed to reverse the Meteorological Service's decision. With that, the three year Prime Minister was free to hand in his commission to HRM Queen Elizabeth II. However, Her Maj refused to accept his resignation and left poor Gordon in a bind.

Refusing to admit defeat, Brown then threatened to unleash a Military style takover of the country with the underline exile of the Monarchy to the Falkland Islands. The Queen had no choice but to accept his resignation.

With those formalities out of the way, Brown hopped into his chauffered Bentley to be whisked back to Number 10. However, his chauffeur refused to drive. With that, Gordo hopped out and walked to Downing Street.

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