The Rt Hon Prime Minister Gordon Brown - Foot and Mouth Issues Escapade
Here is another zany comical news desk sketch I wrote in December 2007
This is one about The RT Hon Gordon Brown - UK Prime Minister 2007...
And now for the news ....
The Prime Minister Gordon Brown, nicknamed by many as "Mr Bean", "Boring Bovine Brown" and other such appropriate names, saw his leadership thrown into question yet again today, this time he made yet another blunder in his ability to get to grips with the issue of foot and mouth disease in Britain, an issue close to his heart given that his appearance and the manner to which he articulates his words, by way of appearing to 'chew the cud' like a cow.He ordered 15 cows with foot and mouth disease to be chained to the railings in Downing Street so that people could see just how it affects them. Fellow ministers refused to enter Downing Street as a result, except to address the media forming a crowd outside, to say that they felt that Gordon Brown had gone stark raving mad. One even went so far as to say that Gordon Brown seemed to be suffering from 'Mad Cow Disease'!
Gordon Brown watching such comments being broadcast live on UK TV news programmes decided that enough was enough, and fuelled the fires of criticism he came out of the front door of Downing Street and mounting one of the diseased cows, after releasing it from its tether he rode it down Downing Street and towards the Houses of Parliament, shouting, "get a grip of Foot and Mouth, I am".
Police eventually had to apprehend Gordon Brown as he went so far as to ride the cow into the Houses of Parliament itself, scaring all in his wake out of the way and causing criminal damage to pavements and corridors by allowing the cow to muck them, as it saltered along the way carrying Gordon Brown.
Gordon Brown was forced to appear before London Magistrates court later to be held accountable for his bizarre behaviour and criminal damages. Magistrates fined Gordon Brown £90,000 for damages and a further £30,000 for setting a bad example to the country, he was also ordered to have some shock treatment in a London Psychiatric
Magistrates told Gordon Brown that he was a poor excuse for a Prime Minister and that he needed to stop being obsessed with cows and thus curb his obsessive compulsion toward Bovines. Gordon Brown was taken away from the court and was admitted to the London Psychiatric Hospital straight from the court.
And now for the weather news....
Tonight there will be freezing snow over the cell in the London Psychiatric Hospital in which Gordon Brown is being detained, but the rest of the country will have a mild warm night.
Tomorrow there will be a tornado over the cell in the London Psychiatric Hospital in which Gordon Brown is being detained, but the rest of the country will have fabulously warm sunshine and the highest of summer temperatures!
That is all for tonight.
