A teacher from Sudan was undergoing intense interrogation today, in the top British police headquarters at New Scotland Yard.

It is alleged that 67 years old mother of 6, Mrs Abigail Surd was guilty of blasphemy by naming a teddy bear Gordon.

Under the strict Blaria Law, which was introduced in 2003 by the war loving Tony Blair, any insult against the incumbent Prime Minister is punishable by public hanging.

Frantic diplomatic activity was reported at the Sudanese embassy in London in an attempt to defuse the situation.

An insider at the Richard Branston Academy for Underachievers, where she worked, was visibly shocked by the outrage against the deity, Gordon.

Apparently, the 16 year old pupils at the school had to take a toy teddy bear home with them at weekends and then write a story of what teddy had done.

They had collectively decided to call the teddy bear Gordon, not realising the offence it would cause.

This is not the first time that offence has been made against the demigod Gordon.

Violent unrest followed the publication of cartoons in Sudan, which portrayed Gordon Brown and the American President in a disrespectful way.

Observers have commented that the British followers of Gordon have been quick to see insults when perhaps none were intended.

An appeal was made to Sir Richard Branston to intervene, but unfortunately he was not available due to prior commitments buying a bankrupt Building Society.

If the death sentence is upheld, this will be the first British hanging since 1955, when the murderer, Ruth Ellis was dispatched to meet her maker.

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