image for Intruder breaks into BBC News broadcast
Winny: a figure of controversy after all these years

London, England. In breaking news, an intruder has trespassed on the set of the BBC News on BBC1 last night just as the nightly bulletin was going to air.

The person, wearing only trousers and displaying a very ample waistline, ran across the front of the news desk with his arms held in the air much like a post goal celebration in football.

Employees soon confronted the individual and hog tied him with gaffer tape. However, to their utter dismay, the stranger proved to be none other than former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who had just been dared by a group of his old university mates to perform the "act" as a favour.

Brown denied that he was forced into doing it as part of a blackmail attempt by former PM Tony Blair. Blair denied that he was pressured by ex Tory leader John Major, who, in turn, resisted commenting on speculation that Baroness Thatcher instigated the whole sordid enterprise.

Thatcher was unavailable for comment but her spokesperson refused to rule out famous British Prime Minister Winston Churchill as having a hand in the affair, which defies credibility as he has been dead for over forty years.

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